Hi Chevy,

I have been the Administrator for the club since October 2002 and I am not familiar with Ann Hanson. I'm not sure exactly what you mean by a "Coed Series" though. Do you mean a race that is not specifically for women only?

There are a number of folks on here who have been members a lot longer than that, so maybe they will be able to tell you.

"Anne Hansen" can be found as a motorcycle drag racer using google but (with brief searching) I can't find anything on when she won a race or a series.

Elena Meyers is of course known as the first woman to win an AMA Pro Roadrace in 2010 (red-flag shortened race at Infineon) and then a full-length 'for the record' race in 2012.

No telling how many women have won races/ class championships /series' at the club level .... AFAIK there's not been any 'modern' prohibition against women riding motorcycle roadraces at any level, they've been giving the guys a run for their money for a long time.
