Yamaha Womens off road racer Jessica Gardiner continued her winning ways over the weekend, taking out the Womens class in Round 1/2 of the NSW State Sprint and Cross Country held at Buladelah.
On Saturday the riders competed in a grueling two and a half hour cross country with Gardiner taking the holeshot after the flag start and never looking back, taking a fifteen minute win on her closest female rival.
Gardiners time found her eleventh outright against the Clubman, Masters and Vet riders giving her incentive to push even harder to beat the boys times on the enjoyable Buladelah circuit.
"I was the quickest to start my bike and got the holeshot." said Gardiner, "The track had perfect moisture, was fast, open flowing with lots of creeks, down and uphills which made it lots of fun' she continued.

Sunday had the riders on a different track where Gardiner once again continued her dominance in the sprint format winning every sprint lap by over a minute on the tight and narrow track.
"The track on Sunday was a lot slower as it was really narrow so I had no room for error." Gardiner explained
"I was stoked with my efforts and felt really comfortable. I need to put this in place at the next round of the National series and just forget about what's around me so I can just ride how I know how to ride" she concluded.
Gardiner won round three and took second at round four of the Australian Off Road Championship at Wonthaggi, Victoria and will now set her sights on winning the next two rounds at Coonabarabran on the 28th and 29th of April.
Jemma Wilson currently holds a one point lead in the Womens Championship over Gardiner with Emelie Karlsson sitting ten points back in third after taking the last round win.
