Posted:

Hobart‰Ûªs ‰Û÷Cambridge Moto‰Ûª played host to Tasmania‰Ûªs best female motocross riders on the weekend as they competed head to head for round one of the 2008 Honda ‰Û÷Girls on the Gas‰Ûª Competition.
Petrina Liemburg
The winner of the 2006 and 2007 Tasmanian round Emily Flint was there to defend her crown against arch rival and close friend Petrina Liemburg. Liemburg finished a close second to Flint in last year‰Ûªs event and was keen to turn the tables in 2008. At the end of the day once the points from all four categories were tallied it was Liemburg who came out on top. Winning both of the on-bike categories (rider technique and lap time sector), while also making her biggest improvement on last years performance by also winning the public speaking sector. The fitness category proved to be the only chink in Liemburg‰Ûªs armour, finishing 5th in the final category for the day. Liemburg was ecstatic with her victory and looked forward to the challenge of going up against the best from each of the other states later in the year in the ‰Û÷Final Showdown‰Ûª to be held in Victoria. ‰ÛÏIt feels good to have won in my second attempt. You have to be on your A game with all the different categories counting for the overall,‰Û
