Female Motorcycle Stunt Riders Jump Over Parked Bikes
Jumping over four parked motorcycles or lying on your stomach as your motorcycle fly’s over a human pyramid may sound like toe-curling stunts for most. But for these female motorcycle stunt riders – Suzana Mohd Sidek, 24, and Saidatul Husna Kamaruddin, 22, from Malaysia- it’s all in a day’s riding.
Two Petite Women
The two petite women are members of the Red Warriors Motorcycle Club which is the motorcycle acrobatic team of the military police in Shah Alam, the state capital of Selangor, Malaysia. Fourteen daredevil motorcycle stunts were performed in conjunction with the recent “Sayangi Selangor” Carnival event held for new years eve. The “Sayangi Selangor” carnival is organised by Umno Selangor. The event held at i-City, Section 7 here, from yesterday to Saturday, is expected to draw the biggest public participation in the state. Prime Minister and Selangor Umno liaison committee chairman Datuk Seri Najib Razak will grace the event on Saturday night New Year countdown.
No Gender Difference When It Comes to Stunt Riding
Suzana, who has been attached with the Genting-Klang camp for the past year, said there was no gender difference when it came to these stunts. “There are six women in this team and we practise just as hard as our male counterparts. There is no leeway for us. “Yes, there are cuts and bruises when we practise and perform but I don’t see it as a discouraging factor. You never know unless you try,” states Suzana.
Moments earlier, she was seen perched on her stomach on a platform, on the back of a moving motorcycle, while several team members dangled by the sides of the machine.
Saidatul Husna, who stands at 1.6 metres, rode a scrambler bike on a ramp and jumped over four parked motorcycles, like a professional stunt rider.
According to the group’s commanding officer, Major Ahmad Zaidi Shuib, the stunt for the event involved 37 people and 15 motorcycles.
