Anastasiya is the only female rider in Russia who was in TOP 3 in five different national championships such as MX, ENDURO, SUPERMOTO, ROAD RACING and CROSS-COUNTRY RALLY.

Her main goal is to become, not only the first ever Russian female Dakar participant, but also to finish with a good result. As preparation for Dakar Anastasiya participated in different rouds of the World Championship and two times in the Africa Eco Race. Her training routine contains 5 times a week of physical training and 3 times a week motocross training with 11th times Russian National MX Champion Alexander Ivanuytin.

Anastasiya believes any competition is definitely a team’s job. That’s why she chose MX coach 11 times Russian National Champion Alexander Ivanuytin as her teammate «water carrier» for Dakar and Henk Helleger’s HT Husqvarna Rally Raid as her assistance team.

Motto: Life is racing. Everything else is just waiting.
