In a first for Women’s Motocross in Australia, the AMX MX OPEN will pay equal prize money between the Senior Women, Pro Open and Pro Lite classes.

The $20,000 + prizes on offer, which is one of the largest purses in Motocross, will be split between the top classes. Factory Honda Racing’s Emma Milesevic respects the efforts of the organiser’s and event partners in achieving this milestone.

“It’s been a long time coming and I am proud of everyone’s efforts. I want to thank the organiser’s, the sponsors, and the Bass Coast Shire. I know how much effort the women riders put into their racing and to be recognised like this is amazing,” said Milesevic.

The Bass Coast Shire was instrumental in making this happen and event organiser Yarrive Konsky appreciates their commitment to motorcycle sport and events in their shire.

“The Bass Coast Shire wanted to stimulate events in their local community, so we are pleased to have their support for a motocross event. We are also proud they wanted the prize to be split equally across all competitors, male and female. Their commitment was integral to bringing the event to Wonthaggi,” said Konsky.

Taylah McCutcheon

Another young female rider who is looking forward to the event is Queenslander Taylah McCutcheon. With many events being cancelled this year Taylah decided to make the trek down to Victoria to take on some of the best female riders before the year ends.

“Having equal prize money is epic but more importantly being able to race again is very exciting. I know some of the best female riders will be there and I am looking forward to competing” said McCutcheon.

In addition to the prize money and exciting prizes made available by event sponsors, the winner of the Pro Open and Women’s classes will take home a Tempur Mattress and Pillow Set, valued at $12,000.

Wonthaggi will host the AMX MX OPEN on December 11 and 12th for more information visit: https://www.facebook.com/amxopenmx
