I have been off the bike for most of the year after fracturing my thumb in multiple places and then dislocating and fracturing my pinky. I’m having my first ride today, super excited to finally get back on the bike. The plan for 2016 is to ride the MX2 class and the Women’s class in the MX Nationals in Australia. I have also entered the Finke Desert race, which will be something completely different for me.
Thailand MXGP was a whole new experience, racing two of the toughest races of my life. Could not believe how hot and humid it was. I got bad starts in both races, but pushed hard for the entire race and managed to get 3rd place finishes for both. I’m happy with my overall 3rd place. it gave me good points, with four rounds still to go. Definitely starting to feel more comfortable on my Bud bike. Can’t wait to head to France in May for some testing and training with the Bud Racing Team. In the mean time I’m looking forward to heading back home to continue training with Greg Moss and start the Aussie season.
Huge thank you to the Bud Racing Team, Kawasaki Europe and Australia, Fox Australia, Moss Institute, Monster Europe, Hitachi, Smart City Vocational College, Zero MX Graphics and all of my fans. Thank you.
Well round one is over, bike has been cleaned and stripped down to fit back into the crate and is now heading to Thailand. Not quite the result I was after, but extremely happy to have got on the podium. The power of my Kawasaki was amazing. Just a small problem with the handling which I’m sure we can fix before round 3. A huge thank you to the Bud Racing Team, Greg Moss from Moss Institute, and also welcome on board to my new sponsor/s Monster Europe and Smart City Vocational College. Could not do this without their amazing support. To all my fans, thanks you so much, I love reading all my messages. Thank you!
Racing the first round of the world championship tonight in Qatar and round two is next weekend in Thailand. Qualified 4th for tonight’s races.
I had a great weekend and am really happy to have won the championship especially after breaking my thumb and rupturing ligaments early in the first day. Over the weekend I won 5 out of 6 races therefore claiming the Women’s Australian Supercross title two years in a row.
Just finished round 3 of the FIM Women’s World Championship in Valkenswaard. Finished second in both races to claim the overall for the weekend. Sitting in 3rd place for the championship with only 2 points separating 1st to 3rd, with 3 rounds to go.
Thanks everyone for the well wishes. The day started great. I qualified for my first MX2 race, in bottomless mud.
Race one – I had a really good start and battled the whole race to finish 27th.
Race two – I had another great start but after coming together with another rider I had bike problems, so unfortunately I had to dnf that race.
We thought we had fixed the bike for race 3 but in the sighting lap the same problem occurred, so unfortunately I didn’t start race 3. Just one of those weekends I’d rather forget.
Ready for the first round of the MX Nationals in Broadford tomorrow. Really excited to be racing in the MX2 class for the first time. A big thank you to all my sponsors, without all your support over many years of racing, I would not have been able to follow my dreams. So a big thank you to Kawasaki Australia, Fox Racing, Moss Institute, PowerPlus Fuels, Easternwell, Eve Skincare, Kawasaki Performance Cleaners and Lubricants, Pod, Kwala, Unifilter, Racetech, Shock Treatment, Vortex, Pro Circuit, ZeroMX Graphics, Goanna Tracks, and Southern Highlands Motorcycles Centre.
I had a great weekend at Qatar for the first round of the FIM Women’s Motocross World Championship. After a less than perfect lead up to this event, with fracturing my ankle 4 weeks prior, everything came together perfectly on the weekend.
My Bud Racing Kawasaki was awesome and the track was amazing. I lead both motos from start to finish, taking the overall win for the weekend. Looking forward to the next round in Italy on the 13th April.

I have arrived in Qatar for he first round of the FIM Women’s World Motocross Championship. Can’t wait for tomorrow night and the night after, bike is looking and sounding perfect, track is unreal.
I’m excited to announce that I will be competing in the FIM Women’s World Championship for the Bud Racing Kawasaki Team. A big thank you to Bud for the bike and support for the 2014 season. I will also be competing at the MX Nationals in the MX2 class with support from Kawasaki Australia.
As some of you already know I had a minor set back in my preparation on Thursday when I fractured my ankle. I am lucky to have the support of a great medical team who devised a management plan to ensure I will be fit and ready for the 1st round of the worlds.
I have to say a huge thank you to Kawasaki Australia, Fox, Easternwell, PowerPlus fuels, Eve sport, Motul, ZeroMX graphics, Kawasaki Performance Cleaners and Lubricants, Kwala, Unifilter, Pirelli, Racetech Suspension, Vortex Ignitions, Southern Highlands Motorcycles, Goanna Track Coonabarabran and of course Greg Moss from the Moss Institute who has coached, mentored and supported me from the time I started riding. Without their support I definitely would not be where I am today, thank you.
Looking forward to 2014.
I received an Australia Day award for Sportsperson of the Year for the Wollondilly Shire!!
I had a great day at the Troy Baylis Classic. This was the first time I have ever raced flat track, very different to the motocross/Supercross that I normally compete in. I was really pleased to walk away from the event with a 3rd place. Looking forward to giving it another go next year.
