Royal Enfield Launches Build | Train | Race Program

Royal Enfield North America announced a new program for 2020, BUILD TRAIN RACE, with the goal of encouraging more women to take up motorcycling. The program features four women with unique backgrounds and gives them two months to customize a Royal Enfield INT 650 motorcycle for flat track racing competition. The final builds will be unveiled at Flat Out Friday on March 13 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin where the women will compete on their bikes in the new 749cc class. The team will also be at the Atlanta American Flat Track round on Saturday, March 28. 

The builders are professional road racer Melissa Paris, Women’s Moto Exhibit creator Lanakila MacNaughton, DIY shop owner Andrea Lothrop and amateur flat track racer Jillian Deschenes

We are excited to bring together such a diverse group of female motorcycle enthusiasts for this program. Each woman brings a different viewpoint and skill set to the program, which highlights the unifying power of motorcycles. The next few months will no doubt be a challenge for the participants as they build and train under tight deadlines to prepare their motorcycles and themselves for competition. We hope that this program will open the door for many more female motorcycle riders to push boundaries within our industry.
