Four time Australian Off Road Champion, Jemma Wilson, has made the shock decision to retire from racing immediately, after admitting she has lost the passion for racing during recent rounds of the championship.

The long-time Yamaha pilot and former ISDE champion, has struggled with motivation during the 2018 season and although she knew it would be her last, rounds five and six of the series rammed home that her energies had shifted and she has decided to hang up her helmet from competitive racing.

‰ÛÏRacing has been a huge part of my life but this year has been tough for me to find the passion for racing,‰Û

Jemma‰Ûªs legacy in the sport will never go unnoticed and she is somewhat of a pioneer in Women‰Ûªs off- road racing. Her resume includes being part of the winning world Championship ISDE team, multiple Australian championships and over 100 starts in the AORC during a 13-year career studded with success.

‰ÛÏLooking back over what I have achieved, I‰Ûªm overwhelmed by the success and support I have had,‰Û

But thankfully, Jemma isn‰Ûªt going cold turkey on her dirt bike habit as she still plans on continuing with her coaching and riding at non-competitive events just for the pure fun of riding a dirt bike.

‰ÛÏJemma has been an inspiration to many female riders over the past decade and we thank her for her effort and services,‰Û
