BSB » Tinmouth makes history as first lady of BSB

The TT's female record-holder Jenny Tinmouth is no stranger to breaking down boundaries, but in 2011 she will achieve her finest breakthrough yet - by becoming the first woman ever to compete in the British Superbike Championship with Splitlath Motorsport

Can't believe some of the comments on here. Regardless of gender, no rider can lap the TT course at 120mph without serious ability and guts. And that's on a stocker. She also won the TTXGP UK series last year and finished third in the world race.

Slight worry about her lack of experience on a big bike on the short circuits I admit though. Might be a few crashes early on.

Well done Jenny.. Don't know if she'll be able to compete but to be honest I couldn't give a flying one.. Think we should send the video to Messrs Gray and Keys.. A woman risking it all just for the hell of it and providing us with great entertainment into the bargain..That should fook em right up.. Any bigots on here should fook right off now.. She's put herself in the firing line to be shot at.. Which in my opinion means she has bigger bollox than most men.. Go for it girl..

This is absolute bo/.,x!! Its shows what a farce the British Superbike Championship has become.At the end of the day the girl finishes in the top 15/10 in supersport on good equipment.How the hell can people say she deserves a bsb ride???
As for all the comments about how fast she is for a girl she will not EVER WIN ANY CHAMPIONSHIP
Racing in the UK is a Joke.
Good luck to her though as its not her fault she's just playing the game and very well too.Thers so much talent wasted in the UK as a result of this.

Good luck to Jenny, Having said that I do worry she has been picked for the amount of press coverage she will generate as the only woman in the paddock rather then how fast she is on the bike.

@ Mr Mr.. No I (like most) don't think she'll be at the sharp end.. But did anybody think Watanabe would ever be at the sharp end?? So good luck to her.. I really don't want to go down the road of "she's good for a girl".. 120mph plus at the TT is good for anybody and deserves respect.. Are there better riders than her in the support classes?? Absolutely.. But there are better riders than Muff in the support classes as well.. Seeley for example..
