Charli Cannon continued her dominance of the 2023 Australian Womens Motocross Championship at round five of the ProMX in South Australia, over the weekend.

Fresh off the plane from France after contesting round four of the 2023 FIM Women’s World Motocross Championship, the defending champion got straight down to business and asserted her dominance with another strong performance that saw her take both race wins and extend her lead in the championship.

Cannon lead from the drop of the gate in both 18 minute races and was never seriously challenged. She built a 30 second gap on her rivals in race one before stalling the bike in the closing stages and crossed the finished line 10 seconds ahead of second, while her winning margin was 18 seconds in race two in much rougher conditions.

“It’s nice to be back in Australia and to race in front of my friends and family. I have had a busy few weekends, with races in Europe and then only getting back to Australia on Wednesday night and straight down to South Australia,” Cannon explained.

“But it’s awesome how much everyone has taken an interest in what I have been doing and following me in Europe. I love all the support.

“Today was good and I got some great starts which makes life much easier. I found the track quite difficult to ride and I didn’t really get a good flow going but I’m happy to get the win and the Yamalube Yamaha Team have looked after me well.

“The plan is to stay in Australia now and do the rest of the ProMX rounds until I go back to Turkey for the final round of the WMXGP in September,” Cannon concluded.

Keeping the winning in the family Charli’s younger brother Jake Cannon took his first MX3 round win thanks to his 2-1 results. Cannon was third across the line in race one, but there was some position relegation after the event that saw him move to second place and after winning the final moto, he won the day on countback from series leader, Byron Dennis.

Jake Cannon now moves to third place in the championship and this with missing the Appin round due to injury.
