Stacey Nesbitt, 14, first woman to reach podium in Honda CBR125R ChallengeThe most amazing thing about Stacey Nesbitt isn’t that she’s a young woman riding a motorcycle. It’s not that she’s a wee wisp of a thing, barely 45 kilograms soaking wet on a 5-foot-5 frame. Nor is it that she’s only 14-years-old, a mere babe in the woods when it comes to motorcycle racing. It’s not even that she won the 2011 Honda CBR125R Challenge (although that is why I am writing this column), the first woman to win a fully accredited national road racing series in Canada (and, some have contended, the world).No, the most amazing thing about Stacey Nesbitt is that she’s been riding a motorcycle for only two years. No riding of minibikes since she was a toddler in diapers, no father pushing her into junior motocross when she could barely walk nor even a whole bunch of time playing pillion behind Dad on his Harley.
