Senior Women’s Open Ironman, Courtney Knight - Queensland Yamaha Girls Team

Stunning Start In Seniors For Courtney Knight

18 Nov 2009

16 year old Courtney Knight from the Queensland Yamaha Girls Team made her debut in to the senior women’s ranks over the weekend at the Inaugural Kilcoy Ironman event. The fresh faced youngster blitzed the field at the two day event, chalking up her first win of what is likely to be a long list of many throughout her budding career.

The two day Ironman event comprises of three rounds of dirt track racing on the Saturday, followed by three rounds of motocross racing Sunday. Knight came out guns a blazing in her first dirt track race on Saturday, taking her first senior career win. The second race of the day Knight was faced with her only challenge throughout the remainder of the weekend, coming from full time dirt tracker Bianca Barnett. Knight battled for the win over the fast paced race, and simply ran out of time to get the passing done, settling for second behind Barnett. Knight sealed the deal with the third and final win in the dirt track, a momentum which carried on to Sunday where she took a further three unchallenged wins in the motocross.

The two day event, made even more grueling by the stifling heat was made all the more bearable by team sponsor Ice-o-tonic slush. The generator powered slushy machine was working overtime keeping riders cooled and hydrated.

This latest result caps off a wonderful year for Knight. The full time high school student came out of 2009 ranked number 1 in Queensland for the third time straight, Queensland Girls on the Gas winner and number 4 in Australia in her Female Junior Lites category.

QYGT would like to thank their sponsors; Yamaha Queensland, Caboolture Motorycles, Pro Yamaha, Fox, Alpinestars, Kustom MX, Iceotonic Slush, Motul, RK Chains, JT Sprockets, Pirelli and Polisport.
