English term or phrase: behind the racing cowl to reduce her profile
She has no helmet and didn't even have her sunglasses with her, so she had to narrowed her eyes against the blast of the wind as she accelerated along the straight. She crouched down behind the racing cowl to reduce her profile.

What is a racing cowl? I tried dictionary and google image but nothing fit.
