The AIS awaits Renee Mills

Posted:

Narellan (NSW) based Motocross rider Renee Mills has recently won selection to participate in a 5-day training camp at Canberra's Australian Institute of Sport, which begins next week. In a major boost for the 18-year-old Broad Torque Kawasaki - Narellan supported rider, which will see her go through 5 days of training that includes learning about nutrition, sports psychology, exercise psychology, strength and conditioning etc, along with rider training. "This is a fantastic opportunity for me in my chase for making a career out of Motocross," stated Mills, who rides the # 26 KX 250F. "I'm really excited about attending this camp and being around fellow female riders that are as enthusiastic as I am at trying to make a serious go out of the sport." For Mills, 2005 started off slowly due to overcoming a knee injury sustained last year, but in the past couple of months she has found her confidence and registered a number of credible results on the NSW female Motocross scene. "Yeah, earlier this year I was well down on confidence due to my knee injury and my performance suffered as a result," commented Mills. After some uplifting words from her father, Mark, Mills was able to overcome that mental barrier and bounce back to form where she registered a string of strong results, which includes currently running second in the Woman's class at the Wollongong Motorcycle club, 4th (Woman's Open) and 5th (Woman's Lites) respectively outright in the NSW woman's challenge over three rounds, and a third place during the Woman's Open at Albury. "I have been pleased with my recent results, but the main thing is that I have got my confidence back," said Mills. "In the sport of Motocross confidence is an integral attribute, and there is no place for the faint hearted or second guessing out there on the track." In November this year Mills will undergo a full knee construction that will put her out of action up until midway through next year after a serious crash at Oakdale in April last year. "The week after my crash last year I was back on the bike and it wasn't until then that I knew that something wasn't right with my knee," recalled Mills. "Although I have still been able to compete I have been aided by a knee brace and that took a number of months to feel comfortable and find my confidence. Mills continued on by saying: "My plans for when I return to riding next year is to have a serious crack at all the major Woman's events and build towards my ultimate goal of one day breaking into the top 5 woman riders in Australia." With her eyes firmly set on achieving success in the sport of Motocross, Mills is looking towards next week's trip to the Australian Institute of Sport with plenty of enthusiasm. "I cannot wait to get there and learn the finer points of achieving my goals, there will also be an opportunity to network with my fellow riders," said an excited Mills. "If I am serious about making a serious go at this sport I need to knuckle down in every area and next week's camp will really drive home what is needed to be successful." Mills made special mention of her sponsors Broad Torque Kawasaki - Narellan and MCA Racing, along with her Mum, Dad and Greg.
