My name is Ella and I love mx as it is such a great outlet for me. I am always hyper and bouncy so its a great way to burn off energy. I love the acceleration and speed but mostly the freedom.
I started riding just before I was 6 and dad had to chase me around the track on my first lap. Dad loved bikes and rode at places like Cadwell and Donington and has loved Valentino Rossi for so long I guess it rubbed off on me, after managing about 10 yards on a pushbike he bought me a PW50 which I learnt to ride.
I moved up through KTM minis and SX50s to my YZ65 I have now. My favourite track is Kieradan Park and I ride here as much as I can.
I plan to race in the mini bike champs again next year and at the girls nationals. My favourite race was my last race where I managed a 20th after getting stuck on the gate and then falling off but I didn't give up and managed to catch up and was 26 seconds a lap faster than in the morning!
