The Racer

Jodie’s dream is to win a national CB500 championship. The title is within her grasp - will she make it? Will Jodie be Scotland’s first female champion?

Jodie Chalk first rode a motorcycle at age five, a gift from her father, Garfield. At 25 she is one of the most competitive riders in the UK, setting track records all over Britain but her dream is to be the first woman to win a British CB500 championship. With Garfield behind her on every corner she’s in with a chance, but as a woman in a male-dominated sport she’s struggling to find a sponsor and the cost of riding at the highest level are high.

For Jodie and Garfield, this season is make or break. They have both made huge sacrifices to get here and the championship title is within her grasp - will she make it? Will Jodie be Scotland’s first female champion?
