After taking the Championship points lead at the Coonabarabran round of the Australian Off Road Championship, Yamaha’s Jessica Gardiner is set to now take on the world as she heads off to Europe to compete at the Enduro World Championships after gaining a ride with the O Pons Yamaha race team.

Light rain set upon Coonabarabran, settling the dust early on leading to good conditions for the riders on the fast and flowing track. Gardiner continued her battle with Jemma Wilson and Emelie Karlson for the number one position with Gardiner winning Saturdays overall by thirty five seconds from Wilson and Karlson after the seven sprint tests.

Sunday saw the Women swap to the tight Pro/Expert track from Saturday with deep ruts making it a difficult course for the competitors. After the five tests Gardiner had a convincing thirty second lead over Karlson and Wilson in the dusty conditions.

“‘The ruts were much deeper and the course on Sunday was a lot tighter and technical which is perfect practice for me before next week’s adventure to Europe!” An excited Gardiner stated.

“Today was really dusty but each lap I was getting quicker and slowly pulling away from the other riders. I am more determined than ever heading into next weekend’s Enduro World Championship!” Gardiner exclaimed.

Wednesday morning Gardiner began sending emails to Motorcycling Australia and Sergi Duran from the Yamaha O Pons team, next thing she knew flights were being booked to race the first round of the Womens EWC on the fourth to sixth of May in Spain and the second round the following weekend in Portugal May eleventh to thirteenth.

“MA were really helpful in getting my FIM licence and entry forms sorted fast, JK Williams have thrown their support behind me giving me the time off work.

"My friend Marc that I met in America at the start of this year will be coming to the races to translate for me and Sport Camera Australia spent three nights straight to help me organize everything” A thankful Gardiner explained.

“The Yamaha O Pons team was really supportive and I am extremely excited to give the world championships my best shot." she continued

"I am more determined then I have ever been so fingers crossed I do well but I’m just going there to show them what us Aussies have got and to get a taste for everything over in Europe so I can prepare myself better for next year.

“Hopefully I will go well and it might see me back in Europe for the last two rounds of the Women’s EWC. I’ll never know unless I get over there and give it a shot!” Gardiner Concluded

Gardiner will set off tomorrow Monday the 13th of May with her Mum making the journey with her to be her personal cook and coach.
