Lisa Norden, the 2010 sprint world champion, has been out of commission with an injury since she placed 12th at the Dextro Energy World Championship Series race in Madrid this year. That being said, she’s been on the podium at a World Championship Series race seven times since 2009, including two wins and second at the 2009 Grand Final. She was also the bronze medalist at the 2010 European championships. Assuming that Norden heals up OK, she will definitely be a threat come 2012.
