Horsham MCC riding high after the staging the highly acclaimed “best ever” Australian junior motocross titles in 2013. Now sets its sights on giving the girls an event to remember with the nine-year anniversary of the Women racing for an Australian title at Horsham. In 2005 Horsham MCC stepped up and held the titles in conjunction with its annual 2 day open. Back then NZ rider Kathrine Prumm dominated her rivals. Nine years on the Australian women is the top class and ready to take on all comers this year in April.
The Australian women’s title will let the girls take the center stage of a new direction in Motocross. With the creation of the MX Amateurs (MXA), a new level of racing will birth. The MX Amateurs will provide those riders who have never raced in a MX National that chance to be a part of something big, which the details will be released shortly.
MX Amateurs will have MXA lites and MXA Open classes along with a C grade all powers, O/35 vets and C grade women’s class. Rounding it out to every class that hasn’t raced in the respective classes in a MX National. Then to top it off the club will hold all junior classes on Saturday the 12th and the event will be once again broadcast live from the track over the internet via the KAJX Podcast www.kajx.net.
Making the Australian Women’s / MX Amateurs a true family event, taking place in Horsham over the 12th and 13th of April. “Our club loves bringing big events to Horsham and our region needs that lift after the fires have once again ripped a hole in the Grampians and surrounding areas. We’ve stepped up and taken the first round of the Seniors titles which happens to fall one month before our event, so all can come do the Senior Vic titles get that track time and see why it is awesome in Horsham.” Said Horsham MCC president Kenny Watts.
