Riding Superbikes with Morongoa Mahope

Morongoa Mahope is a trailblazer and inspiration. She is the first black female superbike racer in South Africa, taking on the tracks and the guys. She is an ambassador for BMW Motorrad, Woolworths, and in 2021 she was chosen to be an ambassador for Ducati SA.

On this episode of She Speaks Sport, we talk about the moment Mo found herself sitting in traffic listening to the sound of a passing motorbike. That sound stirred a passion, that passion stirred action and she bought her first motorbike at the age of 30. Three years later she took part in her first race. She shares the memories of that first race, the challenges she has faced, how her three girls feel about their mom racing a superbike and the dreams she has for the future. We also unpack the question of equality and representation for women in biking, along with the question of access, sponsorship, and resources as challenges to overcome.
