Phoebe has been around the sport for a while involved with family, but only recently jumped on board to start riding in the Supermoto discipline to help build the numbers of women in the sport and reported that she “instantly fell in love”.
Phoebe told us she started racing in 2016 after building up the courage to have a go and now attends all the racing and practice nights. Phoebe started riding on an RM 125 and has recently moved up to a CRF250. A highlight for Phoebe is competing in the Supermoto Australian women’s championships recently when they were held in Wanneroo. Phoebe said she was “ecstatic to come away in 9th position at the Nationals. I haven't been riding or racing as long as the other girls have, and happy to have been able to keep up with them longer than I could last year. They are all awesome!”
Not only is Phoebe learning her race craft she is also on the committee for Supermoto WA as the Media and Communications Officer. Phoebe gives her time to support the growth and development of the club and said she was very proud of how the recent National event came together. Phoebe acknowledged all the hard work of the whole committee and volunteers who helped out to pull off the biggest event to date.
Current Australian Women’s Supermoto Champion Jess Boujos reported that Phoebe is such an inspiration around the sport, she always has a smile on her face and is dedicated to supporting the sport and working hard both on the track and behind the scenes.
How lucky is the sport and Supermoto to have women on board like Phoebe, thanks for all that you do and we look forward to seeing you on the track in 2018!
