Honda Australia has increased their support for women in racing with the signing of 2018 Australian Junior Champion Taylah McCutcheon.
The hard charging 17-year-old from Queensland is turning pro after graduating from high school and has big hopes and dreams.
“Honda Australia have been very supportive of women in racing and when I got a call from Yarrive Konsky I couldn’t believe it, seriously getting a call from Factory Honda is every riders dream” said McCutcheon.
The talented Queenslander has already proven her ability against some of Australia’s best female racers and hopes to one day compete on the world stage.
“My family and I are very committed to racing next year, I am turning pro and we plan on spending a lot of time in Victoria preparing for the Women’s Championship, I also hope to get overseas to compete in some of the World MX Championship rounds,” McCutcheon concluded.
Honda Australia have been very supportive of women in racing and for 2022 they are supporting 7 female riders through their vast range of racing sponsorships including their Factory Team. Honda Australia’s General Manager of Sales Tony Hinton welcomes Taylah and acknowledges the deserving support Honda is providing women in racing.
“I witnessed Taylah racing in Wonthaggi at the MX OPEN, she is very talented, and we are fortunate to have her join Honda. Motorcycling is a sport enjoyed by everyone and we are encouraged to see an increase in the number of women racing motorcycles in Australia. We are proud to support women in racing and we look forward to a successful year ahead with our talented group of female racers,” said Hinton.
The women racing with Honda for 2022 are Emma Milesevic, Taylah McCutcheon, Maddie Brown, Tanesha Hartnett, Ebony Harris, Alysha Goulet and Maddison Healy.
