UK's first female stunt rider Chesca Miles revs up for BSB at Brands Hatch

Thursday, March 31 2011

The UK's first female stunt rider Chesca Miles has been hitting the headlines recently as she continues to mix the thrill of motorcycle stunt riding with a modelling and singing career and this Easter weekend (22-25 April) she will be performing for the crowds at the opening round of the MCE Insurance British Superbike Championship at Brands Hatch.

Chesca first experienced the adrenaline rush by becoming a stunt pillion rider, but it wasn't long before she decided to try stunt riding first hand and already she has rocketed to stardom for her skill with the Stunt Starz team. The stunning 20-year-old is now eager to perform for the biggest crowd of her career to date at Easter Monday's BSB season opener, whilst on track Jenny Tinmouth will also be making history as the first female rider to compete in the British Superbike Championship.

Chesca said: "I have only been stunt riding for about five months; I got into it because I hang around with the guys that do it and then one day I just decided to try it for myself. The first time I got onto the 600cc bike I have to admit it took me about half an hour to build up the courage to do it, but now the fear has disappeared and I just go for it! Once you have challenged yourself once then you can constantly push yourself further to try new stunts. I don't worry about falling off as usually it only hurts a little bit and it soon wears off - it makes you want to try again!

"There has been a lot of media interest because I am the first female stunt bike rider in the country, but I really want to get more girls into the sport and hopefully this will help to achieve that. You just need to get started on a smaller bike, then work your way up to a 600cc once you get used the handling and control. I am now really looking forward to the British Superbike Championship round on Easter Monday; it will be the biggest crowd I have performed for so we definitely want to put on a good show for the fans."
