Susanne Lund Mikkelsen, a motorcycle racer
from Denmark, just joined us at

Your encouragement: Go for it!
When fellow racers ask me what I do for a living
they often literally drop their jaw in surprise.
The combination of being a racer and a librarian is
something both racers and colleagues remember me by
which is the reason why I chose to buy the domain
I live in Denmark but the closest race track is
Swedish Knutstorp where I have done many laps.
There are very few circuits in Denmark so Ive
always looked to Sweden. Even some of the Danish
Championship meetings have taken place in Sweden
let alone Poland and France!
In 2008 I went to one race in Germany and soon
after I was mainly racing in Germany and the Czech
Republic. It means spending more time travelling,
but the circuits are fantastic and the events so
well organized that I just cant keep
I bought my first motorcycle in 1999, went to my
first track day 3 months later and got my race
licence in 2002. My first race bike was a Suzuki
RGV 250 whose engine blew up after 7 days as we
knew very little about 2-strokes at the time. It
was replaced by an Aprilia RS 250 which I raced for
2 years, but I never quite came to terms with the
way 2-strokes needs to be kept at the right
rpms all the time.
I love 2-strokes, but Im just crap at
racing them so I swapped it for a R6 and have stuck
to R6s ever since. Ive owned a
supersport 1999 for 5 years, 2 2006 models and in
2010 Ill be racing a 2009 model.
