READY TO RACE: Horsham motocross rider Tamika Edwards will compete in the final round of the Victorian Senior Motocross Championships on Sunday. Picture: EMMA COUTTSHORSHAM’S Tamika Edwards is aiming for a podium finish at the Victorian Senior Motocross Championships on Sunday.
Horsham Motorcycle Club will host the final round of the state titles at Dooen Raceway.
Edwards, 19, is fifth in the women’s open class heading into the final round, having competed at Wonthaggi, Cobram and Maffra.
The women’s section combines expert and clubman classes, with Edwards entered in the expert section.
“I’ve been pretty consistent but the third round at Maffra I burnt the clutch out on my bike and struggled a bit,” she said. “I am fifth but I am struggling a bit at the moment.
“Hopefully with the home track advantage I’ll finish at least fourth or third if all goes well.”
Edwards picked up her 2012 KXF Kawasaki 250 from Mildura on Wednesday.
“I haven’t ridden since Maffra a month ago,” she said. “It got a rebuild, a new clutch and that so I haven’t had much bike time.
“My fitness is good but I haven’t really ridden much but it’s my home track and I know it pretty well.”
If forecast rain eventuates, Edwards believes it will fall in her favour. She said the Dooen track was technical.
“It doesn’t bother me because I know the track well and can ride in the mud,” she said.
“But it gets pretty sloppy when it rains.”
Edwards, who competes for the adrenaline rush, will compete in the Australian Senior Motocross Titles for the first time in October.
She competed in the junior nationals in 2008 in Perth.
