BCP Pro Circuit Honda Junior Development Team rider Tanesha Harnett tried her hand at ‘Off Road’ over the weekend at Round One of the NSW Off Road State Championships.
The current Victorian and NSW state junior motocross champion felt right at home immediately in the bush and managed to take the win in the junior girls category after a long day’s racing.
“I didn’t really know what to expect out there but I have to admit that I had a lot of fun,” said Tanesha.
“We just softened up the suspension a bit and treated it like a training session. I loved how you really needed to be concentrating and looking ahead otherwise you could get some nasty surprises.”
The event hosted in Nowra over the weekend marked Round One of an eleven round series that will wrap up on the 15th and 16th of September 2018.
“I know Tanesha has been planning on giving Off Roads a go for quite a while now,” said team manager Lee Hogan.
“Her style of riding really suits the off road scene and I can tell she had a ball on the weekend. It will be interesting once she finishes her final year of juniors this year to see what direction she heads in. We’ve got some of the best female off road riders in the world representing Australia currently around the globe so there’s a solid future in it.”
Tanesha and her BCP Pro Circuit Honda team-mates Dante Hyam and Kipp Adams will switch their focus now to the upcoming Round one of the Victorian Junior Motocross Championships which will be held at the Shipwreck Coast MCC on the 7th and 8th of April
