LAL Lal’s Emma Milesevic is ready to take on the best motocross riders in the world when she competes in the World Women’s Motocross Championships in April.
Having just left for Europe, Emma, 19, has long dreamt of riding against the best in the world and will get her chance when the second round of the most competitive women’s motocross competition in the world takes place in Pietramurata, in northern Italy, next month.
During March, Emma will be taking part in an intensive training workshop in Holland.
“It’s been a life-long dream and I can’t believe that this is actually happening now,” Emma said.
“It’s really, really cool. I can’t wait to get over there and meet the people and ride the tracks. I’ve heard so much about their tracks and can’t wait to get amongst it,” Emma said. “It’ll be really great experience.”
With the second round of the World Women’s MX Championships taking place in Italy on Sunday, April 16, Emma has been learning as much as she can about the venue from wherever she can.
“I have been watching a lot of YouTube videos. It looks like it is quite a hard-packed track and hilly, which will be good. I can’t wait to see it,” Emma said.
Emma joins fellow Victorian Madison Brown in contention for the world’s top motocross prize for women.
Emma will be competing as a privateer at selected rounds of the competition this year and is still seeking support from members of the motorcycling community. “Depending on how much funds I raise, I really want to compete in all of the remaining rounds.
“It’s quite expensive to go over there, obviously, living in another country and having to borrow bikes, hire cars, and pay for accommodation. If anyone can hop on board and donate I’d really appreciate it,” Emma added.
