TANESHA Harnett is just 13 years old yet the two-wheel flyer is set to be among the top riders at the Australian junior motocross championships in Western Australian this month.
The Woonona racer is coming off a dominant season in her 12 to 16 years female class of the 85cc motocross in the NSW state motocross series.
Tanesha won the five round series at Cessnock, Orange, Port Macquarie, Nowra and Appin motocross tracks with a perfect 15-win record.
Tanesha was the only rider in NSW to claim maximum points for the year.
The talented Wollongong and Oakdale rider also competed in the four round state title series in Victoria and met with bad luck in the final round.
Well in contention to take the series, Tanesha's engine blew up, leaving her in second spot.
Tanesha has plenty going for her off the track and receives some of the best coaching and advice from Wollongong-based former professional motocross national champion Jay Marmont and his wife Abby.
Jay Marmont retired from full-time racing and has set up Next Level coaching and been working with Tanesha, while Abby looks after the fitness side of the training at Cross Fit Jak Elite, based in Wollongong.
While Tanesha has been ably handling the challenges of facing her rivals on the track, the family are looking for support with Bunbury to host the Australian Junior Motocross Championships at the end of September.
The family is backing Tanesha's dream of success in the national championships but would welcome any support. For more information contact Chris Tanesha at firstname.lastname@example.org
