‰ÛÏI was managing the WJMX mechanics area therefore I had the opportunity to gain some valuable knowledge during these conversations and it became very obvious that Australia are behind the rest of the MX world in helping to prepare our junior riders for International events, so I met with MA and we put a program together that would help in this area," Williams concluded.
