Will Mallory Dobbs be a Championship contender in WorldWCR? “We’ve got a lot of goals”

The inaugural season of the FIM Women’s Circuit Racing World Championship is just readying to get underway next month at Misano but there’s plenty of track action to look forward to until then. 30-year-old American Mallory Dobbs (Sekhmet Motorcycle Racing Team) has been racing in MotoAmerica’s Supersport category but this year will join plenty more in taking part in the first-ever WorldWCR season.

“IT’S SO MUCH OF AN HONOUR” – Dobbs set for world stage debut

Speaking about being a part of the Championship, Dobbs stated: “It’s so much of an honour; I didn’t think I’d be doing it! I am so stoked, I’ve been talking about it since the end of January even though some people were saying I didn’t seem that excited! I’m ready to go and ride like every racer is. We’ve been training on and off track, doing as much riding as possible. Obviously, the gym as well with running and other cardio. We haven’t been able to train much on the R7. We’ve been trying to acquire a testing bike in America which is obviously a bit of a hard thing. I wish we could be riding more but I’m excited.”

“WE’VE GOT A LOT OF GOALS” – can American star rise to the top?

Embarking on European soil for the first time also has its attraction: “I’ve actually never been to Europe; I’ve left the USA twice in my life and went to Mexico! It’s really exciting to go to Europe and see the places but also race on some iconic race tracks. Cremona is new but Misano, Portimao and all the places you see on TV; I get to go and ride them.”

Targetting strong showings from the start, will she be able to fight at the front? “We’ve got a lot of goals and set our sights pretty high. I raced in MotoAmerica last year for a full year on a Supersport bike, so I have expectations for myself. There’s not a lot of people who know about me and my expectations as I’ve never raced with any of these girls. My expectations are high for me personally but I don’t know. We’ll see when we get on the race track and start doing times.”
