Shifting her focus from Motocross, Emma Milesevic’s talents were on full display at the Australian Off-Road Championships, where she finished 2nd in round one and took the win in round two.
Milesevic rode brilliantly in round two, at Golden Beach in Victoria, feeling confident onboard her CRF250R.
“I am thrilled to be leading the Championship. I was actually unsure as to whether I was going to compete in the Off-Roads, as my focus is on motocross this year. Yarrive and I spoke after round 1 of Motocross and he suggested I compete and I’m so glad I did,” said Milesevic.
After chasing her dream for many years, Milesevic worked hard to save up to race overseas but injury and teams who did not deliver forced her to head back home.
“I know this is just a round win, but I needed it. The past five years have been hard and you start questioning yourself. Everyone in my corner deserved this win so I am glad I can give back to them and our sponsors.” Milesevic added.
As one of only a few female riders with a factory contract, Milesevic was extremely proud to be representing Muc-Off and Honda.
“When Yarrive told me that I was going to be representing Muc-Off Honda in the factory team I couldn’t be happier. The team is doing so well in America and Muc-Off have some great products and do some cool stuff. I can’t wait to do more with them and Honda,” said Milesevic.
Outside of her racing duties, Milesevic regularly promotes women in motorsport and is involved in several events where she hopes to see more women riding and racing in the future.
“I enjoy coaching and talking to other women in motorsport and motorcycling. It’s really encouraging to have Honda supporting me and other women, there are more women riding and racing than people realise and I want to see more of them get involved and I will do whatever I can to help.” said Milesevic.
With a busy schedule for 2021, Milesevic will be competing in the Australian Motocross Championship, selected state Championships, the Australian Off-Road Championships and the Hattah Desert Race.
“My goal is to win the Women’s Australian Motocross Championship and race as many of the MX2 Championship rounds as possible. I’m also looking forward to racing the Hattah Desert Race,” finished Milesevic.
Milesevic’s next race is the State Motocross Championship, which will be held this coming weekend in Horsham, Victoria.
