Bateman thunders home in X series
Lismores Rebecca Bateman from Team Husky Chix (pictured) had another brilliant day last Sunday, bringing home her second championship for the year after winning the fifth and final round of the 2006 Queensland Thunder X series in Hervey Bay. Bateman annihilated her competitors and proved far too strong on the motocross track during the Thunder X series. She is also the fastest female supermoto rider in Australia in 2006.
Husky Chix team-mate Jena Grimsey displayed great tenacity to finish third in the series by a single point.
This is great Im so excited, said Bateman. It was a tough battle out there today, with Jena pushing me all the way. Shes a tough competitor but thanks to my trusty TC250, which never let me down, I got through.
