Charli Cannon and her  Yamalube Yamaha Racing Team celebrate a perfect season and a well deserved maiden championship.

Teenage sensation Charli Cannon took her first Australian Women’s Motocross title at the final round of the season with another dominant performance at one of Australia’s toughest motocross tracks, Coolum Pines, QLD.

Cannon has been a revelation in season 2022 and her domination continued on the weekend as she laid out another comprehensive performance that saw the 17-year-old win both WMX motos and take the 2022 Women’s ProMX Championship undefeated.

Some nerves got the better of her in race one and she jumped too soon at the start and slammed her front wheel into the starting gate before it dropped. She was able to pull back and get clear but not before the entire field had raced off. Within the first lap, she was back to second, then by the midway point, back in the lead and she raced off into the distance.

Race two was more like what we have come to expect from Cannon. It was a clear holeshot, lead every lap and take the race win. She did by nearly 30 seconds. That gave her the perfect six wins from six starts in the WMX season and her star continues to be on the rise.

Cannon mastered the tough conditions of her home track at Coolum to end the year with another perfect weekend making her tally for the season six wins from six starts.

“The weekend has been a little overwhelming with so much going on,” she said. “Friday we had a women’s rider day, Saturday was qualifying and race one, Sunday was race two and with this being my local track, I had so many friends and family out to support me.

“I was a bit jumpy before race one and I thought I saw the gate move, so I gassed it, but I just ploughed straight into it so that was a little embarrassing but once I was going, things were back to normal and I was able to ride my way to the front.

“The second race was more about dealing with the track. It was rough out there and this track can get you if you don’t stay focussed so I kept my mind on the job and was able to get another race win.

“It feels good to win this championship and I must thank ProMX, Motorcycling Australia and all the girls that entered the rounds for making it happen. It’s been a great series and hopefully, it can continue to grow, and we can get more girls involved and keep it progressing.

“It’s been amazing to be with Yamaha again this year and the Yamalube Yamaha team have been so good to me. I can’t thank them enough for the effort they go to for my racing with Mike and Nash always making sure I have everything I need and my bikes are perfect.

“And I must mention all the people who bought a jersey on the weekend and raised money for me to go to Turkey next week. I still can’t believe people will do that for me and I’m so grateful for what they did for me and my family today,” Cannon concluded emotionally.

Charli will now head to Turkey where she will contest the final round of the 2022 FIM Womens Motocross World Championship on September 3rd and 4th.
