MWA WOMENS NATIONAL SUPPORT PROGRAM



The MWA Women’s committee is dedicated to supporting women in motorcycling in all disciplines. Through fundraising during the
 year at our events, the MWAW committee  is able to put together small sponsorship packages to support  Western Australian
 women in their endeavors to compete at a national level in their chosen discipline.

As the Australian Supermoto Women’s Championship is being held in Western Australia in 2017, rather than provide support for travelling expenses which is the usual form of support, the committee have identified that funding/reimbursing the final practice session for eligible WA Women would be appropriate. 

Applications are now being taken for sponsorship for the Australian Womens Supermoto Championship from eligible competitors. 

Eligibility:

- demonstrate valid entry to the event

- not received any support from MWA W in 2017

- attending the final practice session Thursday 16th November

- willing to provide an article & picture of your experience in the event for publication by MWAW 

 

The MWAW committee would like to invite you to apply for our National Championship Support program as you have been identified as a nominated entrant and have not received any support from MWAW in 2017. 

Please complete the following page and return to mail@motorcyclingwa.org.au along with your article about the event for the committee to process your application. Please note that we have to have the article in order to process your application and reimbursement. 

 Please don’t hesitate to contact the committee if you have any questions through the email address above. We look forward to receiving your application and would like to wish you all the best for the event. Ride safe and have fun!!

MWA WOMEN'S COMMITTEE

INSIDE STORY

Coming from an enduro background, supermoto seemed like an exciting, thrill seeking yet unattainable moto sport to try. I'd watched from the sidelines and cheered on friends, but never thought I'd get the chance myself. With the 2017 Supermoto Nationals fast approaching, some very generous birthday gifts and friends giving up their weekends, my enduro bike was converted into a supermoto bike.
 
Practice night at the Wanneroo International Kart Way on the 16th of November was my first time I would test my bike out and see the track Nationals would be held at that coming weekend. The night went well and I got a feel for the slick tyres and of the corners and speed I would need to compete. The dirt section of the track made me feel more at home, if only there had been a log or two to jump thrown in.

 Saturday came and it was race day. Practices and then time trials, finishing with two races for day one. Sunday began with a warm up and then straight into racing. I felt more comfortable and confident as each race progressed. Getting better lap times every time I went out. I had some great battles on the track and had an absolute blast the whole weekend. I finished 8th outright, and with the amount of track time I had prior to Nationals, I am happy with my result.

Supermoto WA is a very inviting and encouraging club. Giving riders an opportunity to try a new sport. I had so much fun and definitely want to give it a try again in the future. The women in this sport are amazing. The speed, commitment and sportsmanship shown on and off the track was a true view into this great sport.

Thanks to Fofo Productions for the photo.


Phoebe Meads -  How to get hooked on Supermoto!

Phoebe has been around the sport for a while involved with family,  but only recently   jumped on board to start riding in the supermoto discipline to help build the 
numbers  of women in the sport and reported that she “instantly fell in love”.

Phoebe told us she started racing in 2016 after building up the courage to have a go and now attends all the racing and practice nights.  Phoebe started riding on an RM 125 and has recently moved up to a CRF250. A highlight for Phoebe is competing in the Supermoto Australian women’s championships recently when they were held in Wanneroo. Phoebe said she was “ecstatic to come away in 9th position at the Nationals. I haven't been riding or racing as long as the other girls have, and happy to have been able to keep up with them longer than I could last year. They are all awesome!”

 Not only is Phoebe learning her race craft she is also on the committee for Supermoto WA as the Media and Communications Officer. Phoebe gives her time to support the growth and development of the club and said she was very proud of how the recent National event came together. Phoebe acknowledged all the hard work of the whole committee and volunteers who helped out to pull off the biggest event to date. 

Current Australian Women’s Supermoto Champion Jess Boujos reported that Phoebe is such an inspiration around the sport, she always has a smile on her face and is dedicated to supporting the sport and working hard both on the track and behind the scenes.


 How lucky is the sport and Supermoto to have women on board like Phoebe, thanks for all that you do and we look forward to seeing you on the track in 2018!
