Fullnoise: This year you completed the full 2013 Australian Off-Road Championships with some great success, how did this season go for you and what were some of your highlights.
Tayla: This years AORC season was pretty good, I got my first National win in seniors and I made the podium in 8 out of the 12 rounds.
I had a couple of DNF's which put me off the podium for the championship but it is all good. I am still learning and the plan is to just keep getting better and move forward.
Fullnoise: You raced the 2013 Australian Four Day Enduro this year over in Western Australia, how did this years A4DE pan out for you?
Tayla: The A4de was going pretty good, I was a little off the pace of Jess and Emily, Jemma Wilson was riding good aswell. I was running in fourth position the whole event and was only twenty seconds behind Jemma who was in 3rd going into the final moto whichI thought was possible to make up.
I suffered a bit of bad luck when my chain came off on the third lap of the final moto which put me out of the race and I ended up 5th for the event.
Fullnoise: You are about to head over to Italy to represent Australia at this years ISDE, you, were part of the team that finished second for Australia last year, how was it to finish on the podium at the biggest Enduro event in the world at your first attempt and how are you looking forward to this years event with some more experience behind you?
Tayla: I filled in for Jemma at last years ISDE in Germany because she was hurt. I was still new to Off-Road and it was my first real Enduro race. I went into the race just to finish which I did an at the end of it we finished on the podium. Being on the podium with the team was the greatest feeling ever.
This year I am more experienced and I have had more time to train and get ready. My aim again for this year is to finish but also to stay consistent with good times and hopefully the team can get Australia on gold.
Fullnoise: Finally who has supported you throughout the 2013 race season.
Tayla: My main supporters this season have been my parents like always as well as my personal sponsors in Scott Gear, Rekluse, Force Accessories, Teencee Graphics, Suttos Motorcycles and Pirelli Tyres.
Fullnoise: Thanks for your time Tayla and good luck for the 2013 ISDE in Italy.
Tayla: Thanks heaps
