For the first time in Australian Classic Dirt Track Championship history there were enough entries to fill up the grid of a women’s class. Held in Broadford, Victoria over the June long weekend, there was enough two-stroke mix in the air to worry the fire brigade and wake sleeping wildlife.
After five heats on 610m of dust and corners, the title was ultimately taken by nineteen-year-old Tayla Street, who first saw an Australian Championship road racing win at the fresh faced age of thirteen. The bar was set and gauntlet thrown down, and Street was fastest in all but one heat in which local top-ranked trials rider Brooke Lonie edged in front.
Despite being bested by their Victoria rivals, blowing an engine, and being literally ridden over by the competition, the Sydney’s Jerkyls girls say they can’t wait to do it all again next time… after some time spent in the workshop to prepare.
