Women’s Development Program
The second edition of the 2023 Women’s Development Program session was hosted this evening. Featuring insights from Josh Green, Jessica Gardiner and Emelie Karlsson, female competitors received an insight into different aspects of Enduro, from nutrition, mindset, as well as track conditions and racing formats.
Juniors joined Josh Green at the Yamaha truck this afternoon, at the QMP track for another YORTT session. This is a hassle-free opportunity available at every weekend of the 2023 season where you can learn from a world-class athlete, on all Off-Road tech and tips.
