BBC Sport - Maria Costello: Motorbike queen targets fifth Isle of Man TT
The biker queen with 24 broken bones
- From the section Motorsport
Maria Costello looks forward to her fifth appearance at the Isle of Man TT, despite suffering 24 broken bones in her career.
The 41-year-old became the first woman to secure a podium finish at the Manx Grand Prix and held the female TT lap record - 114.73 mph - for five years before it was bettered by Jenny Tinmouth in 2009.
Costello believes more women can be a success in motorcycling, saying "it's all about educating people, showing them women can do it too."
