Motorcycling Australia has announced an advanced Women’s Motocross Racing Academy that will take place at the final ProMX round at Coolum, QLD.
The aim of this initiative is to increase value, and improve skills and outcomes for female ProMX competitors while also encouraging state-level competitors to enter and commit to a ProMX MXW season with the support of the program.
The program will offer an advanced level coaching and mentor program for ProMX MXW competitors that will cover many aspects of advanced motocross practice, covering elements such as intro to the ProMX paddock, track walks, coach and pro rider talks, technical talks and the racing mindset.
While the program will come to full fruition in 2023, Motorcycling Australia and committed stakeholders will seek to get this program underway at the Coolum, Queensland final round on Friday the 19th of August.

Peter Doyle, CEO, Motorcycling Australia. “This program is another great initiative to get more women into the sport. This has been framed and developed by women for women and has the support of the wider industry.
“It’s great to have the likes of Emma (Milesevic) and Charli (Cannon) doing well and flying the flag for the MXW class. But for the EZILIFT MXW Class to flourish, we also want to see more competitors at the start gates. This is both a short-term and long-term goal.
“The EZILIFT MXW Racing Academy seeks to not only improve the skills and prospects of those already racing – and those who are on the fringes- but help to provide a pathway for the next wave of MXW superstars”
