Georgia takes treble of wins

MOTORSPORT: Airlie Beach's Georgia Murray travelled to Millaa Millaa on the weekend to compete in the 2016 KTM Thunder on the Mountain.

In a solid performance she won three from three races to win the women's unlimited class in the natural terrain event.

She was displaying a new number and new gear at the event, running the Number 6 instead of her usual #G30 as she is ranked 6th in QLD in Women's open Motocross this year.

She has been travelling North competing in the TNQ MX Series and is outright leader having won every round so far and is looking forward to completing the series in Mareeba and Tully next month.

It was the very first Thunder on the Mountain event and was hosted by the Ravenshoe Motorcycle Club with the two day event held at Millaa Millaa on the Atherton Tablelands.

Around 200 riders participated in classes from 50cc division through to the All-Stars Invitational Class.

The results are not surprising for the 20-year-old as she has previously placed in the top 10 at the Queensland State Motocross Championships.

Murray has been in great form this year with a string of solid performances including a second place with four second places at Drays Park earlier in the month at her home track.
