BCP Yoshimura Honda Development rider Madi Healey has continued her fine form in 2021 as she dominated proceedings over the weekend at Canberra for Round 1 of the East Coast MX Series.
In a stacked field of senior women, Healey had her starts dialled all day on board her BCP Honda CRF250R and would go on to win all four races for the day.
“I had such a good time today and it was great to race Jess for the first time,” said Healey.
“I’m enjoying the slightly longer races and its just so good to be able to travel and race again. I worked my butt off at the end of 2019 and I guess like a lot of people I was so shattered when we got put into lockdown and was unable to race for basically a whole year. I can’t thank all of my sponsors and supporters enough for sticking by me and making my first year in seniors such an enjoyable transition.”
Jess Gardiner would finish in second place overall in the Women’s category with Tanesha Harnettback in third.
“It’s always a tough gig stepping up into seniors, especially when you’re coming off back to back junior state championships,” said Team Manager Lee Hogan.
“However Madi seems to have made the transition a lot easier than most. She’s super focussed and physically stronger than most of the other girls on the start gate, so once she gets a little more experience under her belt I really think she can compete against the top girls nationally as the year goes on. Which is really quite impressive for a rookie in her first year as a senior.”
Round 2 of the East Cost Series will be held at Hastings Valley MCC on the 8th and 9th May.
