The Inside Story

 The inside story – High’s and Low’s of National MX competition
  by Chelsea Blakers

Day 1 of the event had me and all the WA girls excited and nervous. The track looked really fun and nice and soft. We were second out for qualifying and the track was quite dry, hard and slippery. The wind was crazy and dried the track out quickly causing it to be quite skatey.  I qualified in 8th position which I was surprised with. I decided to be more of a supporter of the event than a racer this year as I was unable to train much in the lead up to the event.

Race 1 and 2 I managed to place 7th and 6th which put me in a good position in equal 5th overall at the half  way point. Trying not to let my competitiveness take over, I entered Sunday with a 'be consistent' attitude. A first lap crash in moto 3 had me working hard to make up several positions to finish in 8th. Heading into the final moto I was sitting in 6th overall, I was hoping to finish with a strong positing race and come away with a 6th or better finish. Unfortunately through a fast section just after the start the rider in front of me went down. I was mid flight and couldn't do anything. I crashed into her bike and went down pretty hard. I immediately got up, ran to my bike and got it going. As I went to take off I knew something wasn't right and I was unable to finish the race due to a complete fracture and displacement of my collarbone. I am pretty disappointed to say the least. But focussing on positives, even with a DNF I managed to place 11th overall in the 2017 Australian Women's MX Championships. 

I would like to say a big thank you to the WA Women's Committee for offering some support to help get us girls to the event and also Neil Dunne for the transport of our bikes.


  The Inside Story – A Great Experience to be at the Motul MX Australian Women’s Titles
   by Tahlia Lang 

2017 Coolum Nationals were an experience and a half, without the support of my sponsors and especially  Neil Dunn it wouldn't have been possible. Day one started out ok. Qualified 22 out of 31, moto one was sitting 17th when I hit a kicker on one of the tabletops and went over the hangers. Got back up to finish 28th.  Second moto was better finished 19th, but after the first moto was a bit sore.

Day 2, third moto forgot to turn electric goggles on (rookie mistake) had to pull goggles off as I couldn't see. Fourth
moto was a good one for me finished 17th, but to see a good friend on the ground first lap was tough. Luckily she is a tough cookie like 99% of WA women that race. Massive effort by WA to have made up 1/3 of the women's race.

Thanks to Steve's Menswear Manjimup, Black Anchor Tattoos Busselton Bunbury Shire, WA Womens committee and Chain Reaction Motorcycles for their support.
