Local rider to compete in Troy Bayliss Classic
WHITSUNDAY dirt rider Georgia Murray recently travelled to Taree in New South Wales to have a practice run for the Troy Bayliss Classic.
She was invited to race in the special event which will take place on January 18, 2014 at Old Bar.
Borrowing a bike to test out the oiled track for the first time, Georgia made the most of the trial run experience and also enjoyed meeting Troy Bayliss.
Georgia will be racing against Meghan Rutledge who holds three Australian junior motocross titles and two Australian senior motocross championships as well as Mackenzie Tricker who has returned from the United States after compet- ing at the American Motocross and X Games.
Jess Shepherd who is currently Queensland number one rider on dirt track and Taylor Jones, who is a top Enduro rider will also be part of the epic women’s line-up in January.
After producing some excellent lap times, Georgia is excited about her prospects next year.
She tested out her new KX450F at the Whitsunday Moto Sports Club practice and awards day at Whitsunday Raceway on the weekend.
Geogia will be representing the Whitsundays at the North Brisbane Cup this Saturday.
