Riding a Sherco 300SE-F, Jessica put on a flawless display of tough enduro racing to not only lead the three-lady Aussie team assault, but also claim the outright honours in what was one of the most gruelling Six Days events in years.

 

The course on day three was incredibly nasty with 110 riders failing to finish the day. And the riders that did make it through had to face another three days on the bike. hot all day but we have the best support crew helping Team Australia making sure the riders are organised, hydrated and well feed! Hats off to all our helpers and organiser's getting us through these tough days- more then 50% of the starting field has already DNFed!

“It was super-hot but we had the best support crew helping Team Australia making sure the riders are organised, hydrated and well feed, getting us through these tough days where more than 50% of the starting field did not finish,” Jessica explained.

 

The timed specials test were particularly brutal, mostly being all rock or deep sand.

““The tracks were dusty and super-fast with a lot of rocks out on the trial sections! I had some great battles with the other girl's.”tracks were dusty and super fast, with a lot of rocks out on the trial sections! I had some great battles with the other girl's

 

Jessica teamed with Jemma Wilson and Tayla Jones who combined to be the dominant team, winning over Canada and the USA. The Australian team also finished in positions one, two and three outright, indeed a commendable effort.
