Kendall Jenner has announced that she will be racing in a variety of upcoming race series across Canada this year, including the Tour de Québec and the Tour of Alberta.
The 21-year-old model and actress has been racing since 2013 and was crowned a Canadian Supermodel by the Canadian Media Awards in 2016.
The first race series is being held in September with a focus on the Canadian Motorcycle Super Series (CMSS), which was created in the early 2000s to allow women to compete in the sport of motorcycle racing, the same as men.
She will be competing in the Tour des Vites du Québec (TVQ) with the likes of Leah Rauh, who won the Tour in 2017 and is the current reigning Tour de Quebec Champion, and Lizzy Zegna, who was crowned the 2017 Women’s Tour de Montréal (WMT) Champion.
Kendall Jenner will be riding in the WMT Canadian Championship Series for the first time this season.
She is riding for Team Lazy Girl, who are currently riding in Canada’s top motorcycle series.
In a statement, the team says they will be joining Kendall Jenner in the 2017 Tour de La Vlaanderen.
The Canadian team is looking to take home the title, which was vacated last year after the death of Leah, the Canadian rider who had been competing in her fourth consecutive Tour de la Vlaorêne.
Kendall will be representing Team Lazer Girl at the Tour for the second time, following the 2014 Tour de France.
She has also won the 2017 WMT, which is now her fourth Tour win.
The team will be represented in Canada by the National Women’s Team.
Kendall has already raced the Tour d’Étoile (Tour de France) and the World Championship Road Race (WCT) in her home country.
Kendall was also crowned a Tour de Canada Champion in 2015 and won the WCT in 2018.
Kendall’s first ever road race victory came in the 2011 Tour de l’Avenir (Tour of Britain), when she finished 10th and became the first woman to ever win the Tour.
She had also won a record nine Tours in total, including five consecutive in 2017.
In 2018, Kendall won the Vuelta a Espana (Tour) as a rookie and the Giro d’Italia (Tour).
She will next compete in a race for the Canadian team in the new season of the TVQ, which starts September 6.
Kendall currently has two Tour victories, which included a stage victory in 2017, and one stage win in 2016, the most recent of which was in the 2016 Tour de Yorkshire.
Kendall is also currently the reigning Canadian Super Model.
