Sad story about Elena Myers out today

From asphaltandrubber.com

At 23 years of age, it is strange not to see Elena Myers on the race track these days, as the talented MotoAmerica racer is undoubtedly in the prime of her life, racing-wise.
But, Myers hung up her leathers a little over a year ago, saying that she could not secure enough funding for the 2016 season a common enough story in the American road racing paddock but seemingly other issues were percolating below the surface of that statement.
Giving an extensive account to the Philadelphia magazine, Myers describes a narrative about how a sexual assault during a hotel massage changed not only her life, but also lead to her quitting the sport she loved.
The account is a disheartening one, and it goes beyond just allegations of an assault by a masseur, as it spills into the all-too-familiar reality of how the indifference and unwillingness of others come part and parcel with what is already a serious crime.

I read about this yesterday... very sad, and a tragic way to end her career. I hope she will be successful with her lawsuit...
