Episode notes

Celina Liebmann is a trail blazer in speedway, becoming the first female rider to race in an FIM World Speedway Championship event competing in SGP2 in 2022. And in 2024 she will become the first female rider to race in a professional British league when she joins the Workington Comets on the Cab Direct Championship.

With speedway being a male dominated world, she's had no shortage of advice from online experts, but as you'll hear, she doesn't care what anyone thinks.

Celina has been riding a speedway bike for 18 of her 23 years, and comes from a family of motorcycle racers. Her dad was a top German Ice Speedway rider, and her mum competed in Moto X, and so in her words "we know how to ride a bike".

In addition to British league racing she will also have the chance to face some of the finest riders in world speedway in the season opening Peter Craven Memorial meeting in Manchester UK, at the National Speedway Stadium.
