Courtney Knight continues her unbeaten run in QLD MX

Queensland Yamaha Girls Dominate In Dysart

12 Apr 2010

Queensland Yamaha’s female racers have again dominated proceedings at the round two of the Yamaha Queensland Motocross Championships held at Dysart, Central Queensland. QYGT’s Courtney Knight and Tamara Gray went 1-2 while Kiera Smith (Burdekin Yamaha) rounded out the top three in an all Yamaha podium.

The temperature dial was turned to extreme for the two days, not deterring the riders though from the fast paced hard packed track.

Courtney Knight (Team Moto Moorooka) again proved she is the girl to beat this year, collecting all three wins after rocketing to three huge holeshots. The 16 year old now has plenty of points up her sleeve in the hunt for her first senior state title.

 “I am pumped with how the series is going for me so far.  I just need to maintain this momentum over the coming weeks and put together a consistent final round which I know that I can do,” Knight commented.

Second placed Tamara Gray (Bayside Yamaha) continued he return to form this weekend with 3-2-2 finishes.  Her consistency has now moved the former champ in to second placed overall with one round remaining.

“I definitely felt I was riding better this weekend, and I improved a little on my starts.  I still have a bit to keep working on though, so I will be doing what I can in the mean time to keep myself progressing.” Gray offers.

Third placed and current Champ Kiera Smith (Burdekin Motorcycles) had a bumpy weekend with 2-7-3 moto finishes. Smith is only one point away from the second placed Gray.  The final round is set to be a show down between these two YZ250F pilots.

After a tough start to the series, Brooke Thiemann (Caboolture Motorcycles) battled on to an improved 9th place finish.

The deciding of the champion and state 1-10 plates will be in a fortnight’s time as the series heads to Roma in the south west.
