South African lady becomes 1 of Africa’s 1st Dakar Rally riders.

Kirsten Landman started riding just for fun when she was just eight years old. However, she turned the hobby into a career and at the age of 22.

Kirsten became a professional off-road and hard enduro competitor. Since then she has made a name for herself in several competitions, in some of which she was the only woman competing.

Publications reported Landman became the first female to finish several Redbull races, including the Redbull Romaniacs, Redbull Sea to Sky, Redbull Megawatt 111 and Redbull Braveman.
