Rutledge and Alabaster ready for battle at Australian Women’s MX Championship

Posted:

Kawasaki's bid for the 2011 Women's National MX Championship is in good hands with current NSW Female MX Champion Meghan Rutledge and current NZ Female MX Champion, Letitia Alabaster, gunning for the title on board Kawasaki KX250Fs this Saturday 28 August at Coolum, QLD.

16 year old Meghan Rutledge from Picton, NSW is hungry to win her first Senior National MX Title this Saturday. Having won every Australian MX prize as a Junior including numerous State Titles and the National Junior Female MX crown for the last three years, Rutledge's transition to the Seniors ranks has been seamless, having already won the NSW MX Title this year.

An optimistic Rutledge said, "I would love to win the Australian Title in my first year as a senior! I really want to go out there and have fun but I also really want to win. My preparation's been really good. I've been doing lots of off the bike training so I feel really fit."

"The KX250F is awesome. I couldn't do it without the help of Glenn MacDonald at Kawasaki. He makes sure my race bike is ready to win. Greg at Moss Institute has been a great help and the support that TC (Troy Carroll) and Monster Energy Kawasaki will be providing at Coolum will be awesome."

Current NZ Women's MX Champion, Letitia Alabaster, has recently moved to Australia to further her already blossoming MX career. The 22 year old, now based in Leeton, NSW, worked hard to overcome a year off in 2008 due to Chronic Fatigue Syndrome to win a string of Titles from 2009 to 2011 including the Women's Motocross Championship, the Women's National TT Flat Track Championship, the Women's Waikato Championship and the Women's NZ Cross Country Championship.

Alabster is looking forward to racing at Coolum this Saturday saying, "It's going to be a great experience for me racing the Australian Women's Championship. I'm looking forward to going and seeing what it's all about."

"Monster Energy Kawasaki will be offering some great support. I'm actually going to be racing on one of the team's KX250F race bikes so that's pretty awesome. If my heads in the right place on Saturday I've got as good a chance as anyone else."

Both Meghan Rutledge and Letitia Alabaster will be supported on Saturday by Monster Energy Kawasaki. Team Manager Troy Carroll will be on hand with team mechanics to ensure that both Rutledge and Alabaster are in the best possible position to ride to their potential, which if past results are anything to go by, is great.
