RO­MANCE AND AD­VEN­TURE What did you do for your hon­ey­moon? Malaysian cou­ple Alfi and Diana got mar­ried and quit their jobs to ride from their home, Se­lan­gor, to Lon­don (mark­ing 60 years since the coun­try’s in­de­pen­dence from Bri­tain). They set off in April and rode through Malaysia, Thai­land, Nepal, In­dia, Pak­istan, Iran, Ar­me­nia, Ge­or­gia and Turkey on the way to Europe. They didn’t do this on an ad­ven­ture bike, but a Honda PCX125 scooter.

HIS­TORY Ana Car­rasco has made motorcycling his­tory as the first wo­man to win an FIM World Cham­pi­onship race. The 20-year-old took the land­mark vic­tory at the Por­timão round of the World Su­pers­port 300 cham­pi­onship. “I think it will be a change of men­tal­ity and peo­ple will re­alise that a wo­man can fight for the cham­pi­onship,” she said.
