Yamaha MXstore Ballards Offroad Team‰Ûªs Jess Gardiner proved at the last round that she was human after all, when she was finally denied victory for the first time since the final round of the AORC championship in 2018 in the Women's class.
Who beat her? Emma Milesevic, an imported motocross rider, that‰Ûªs who.
Question is, now that Milesevic has the monkey off her back, can she keep her form going and win more races? Speaking about keeping form going, Gardiner will no doubt finish in the top three this weekend, baring any bad luck.
In fact, the 26-year-old is just 27-points shy from scoring 2000 championship points in her AORC career, which has never been done in the Women‰Ûªs category.
Gardiner will still have to be on her game, not saying that she isn‰Ûªt, but she now only has a 27-point championship lead, over Milesevic, who is just one slender point ahead of Emelie Karlsson
Making up the top five is Danielle Foot and Ebony Nielsen.
