The final round of the Australian Motocross Championship is being run this weekend on Queensland’s Sunshine Coast. Factory Honda is competing for titles in the 450 class and Women’s class after capturing the 250-championship last weekend.
Team HRC Honda Australia is fielding three factory riders in the 450 class and two in the Women’s class. Dean Ferris, Wilson Todd and Kyle Webster are united in their efforts to help Honda and Dean secure the MX1 Championship. Ferris is ready and prepared for the final round this weekend.
“I am ready, the bike is great, the team have worked hard and have maintained focus all year and I have great teammates. I want to finish the season with another overall and I will do my best to achieve that, that’s all I can do,” said Ferris.
Wilson Todd and Kyle Webster aim to improve on their previous round result, and they believe they can contend for podiums.
“Last weekend I was mentally and physically exhausted. Racing both classes and being nervous took it out of me. I have had a great week, we did some testing and I feel better prepared for this weekend,” said Todd.
Webster also stayed in Queensland so he could test ahead of this weekend’s final round.
“Last week I felt like a fish out of water. We have tested this week and I feel better prepared for the weekend, I will do my best to chase a podium in the sand this weekend,” said Webster.
Factory Honda’s Emma Milesevic and Taylah McCutcheon are also ready for the final round of the Women’s championship. Emma is in contention for the overall and is determined to do what it takes.
“I am coming off an injury which is unfortunate, but anything can happen, and I will do what I can to win this championship,” said Milesevic.
Emma sits in second whilst her teammate Taylah sits in 10th after missing round 2 due to injury. The likeable young Queensland racer has nothing to lose in the final round and wants to finish with a win.
“It’s been a tough year, one I would rather forget but this weekend provides with another opportunity to show my talents and I am going for the win,” said McCutcheon.
Emma and Taylah will also be sporting an all-new graphic kit to celebrate and show case the newly released Ross-White CRF50F. The 2023 models also come in Extreme Red. Emma was pumped to be sporting the new kit.
“This is so cool, we are all encouraging kids to ride and these new colours provide young riders with options. I was pumped when I was asked to run a replica kit on my factory Honda CRF250R’” concluded Milesevic
