Cris Sommer-Simmons - Motorcycle Cannonballs


#1

She’s the only woman who has finished two motorcycle Cannonballs. But it isn’t only about making sure that the bike can finish. “When I'm on the Cannonball, it's an endurance race,” Cris explained, “It's about keeping your bike running, but taking care of your body too. It's as much endurance on the rider as it is on the machine. Riding old motorcycles [all day], with maybe an hour to eat lunch if you don't break down, is very tiring, even if you have good weather.”
