Australia’s women’s runner-up champion Emma Milesevic will spearhead the newly titled Repco Honda Racing women’s program with teammate Tahlia O’Hare.
Beaton: “I can’t wait for the gates to drop, I feel comfortable and confident going into this weekend. The team and I have done a lot of testing and their commitment is equal to everything I have experienced with factory teams overseas”.
Webster: “I feel like I am the underdog again, I have one goal in mind, and I am going into this year’s championship more prepared than ever before”
Todd: “I feel good, but a little underprepared as I have tackled some injuries pre-season. That said, I am ready and good to go”.
Connolly: “I am excited and nervous. New team, new bikes and new people, its really exciting and I can’t wait”.
Milesevic: “I want this so bad; I have changed my training and diet and am more prepared than before. I can’t control the competition, but I am focused on myself and the results I am chasing”.
O’Hare: “It’s been a long time since I raced in Australia, I am nervous and I am taking a sensible approach going into round 1”.
