VICTORIA

170430 207-ridim

I’m Victoria a half-British, half-Italian 27 year old living in the north of Italy.
I’m a mechanical engineer and work full-time as a design engineer.

My father tought me to ride motorbikes when I was 11, but I didn’t start training and racing until my mid-twenties. Now I race in the Lombardy Enduro Championships and occasionally in the Italian Championships.

I love to travel.
I like to visit new cities and countries every year, but I also enjoy going back to places I already know and discover something new each time.
My dream is to combine my passion for motorbikes and my love of travelling and explore the world on two wheels.

Countries I have travelled to so far:
Belgium, Slovakia, Germany, England, Scotland, France, Greece, Switzerland and Italy

THE BIKE

I currently ride a 2012 KTM 250 EXC F I bought second-hand 3 years ago.
I ride it both during training and racing and I’ve been really happy with it.
I love the engine, the traction and the sense of stability I feel while riding it.

Being a short girl, the cons about this bike are the seat height (97 cm) and the weight  (107 kg), two things that can make a ride exhausting if I fall over too many times.
