Sue Fish

Background

Pioneering female motocross racer, Sue Fish, a
3-Time Women's National Motocross Champion and a World Champion, was inducted into the AMA Hall of Fame during the 2012 AMA Motorcycle Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony, presented by KTM, in Las Vegas, NV on November 16, 2012.  In 2014, the FIM honored her as a "Legend" in the sport at their annual Gala in Spain.


Sue Fish was a role model for several well-known women races like Dorene Payne and Mercedes Gonzalez.  She definitely pushed the sport to the limit, competing against her male counterparts and beating them.  Professional women's motocross came 30 years to late for Fish.
