Jacqui Jones wins NSW Girls on the Gas

28 Oct 2008 - For the second year running, Port Macquarie rider Jacqui Jones has won the NSW leg of the Honda Girls on the Gas Competition and in doing so will get to defend her 2007 National crown next weekend in Bacchus Marsh, Victoria.

With the Port Macquarie Motocross club playing host under perfect weather and track conditions, the BCP Honda rider proved unstoppable on the day, winning both of the ‘On Bike’ Categories, while scoring another victory in the public speaking module and a solid third in the fitness sector.

“I’m really happy to now get to defend my title this weekend down in Victoria,” said Jones.
  “I’m disappointed with the fitness sector though as that is normally one of my strongest categories. I’ve had an ear infection for a while now and the medication wasn’t making me feel the best.”

Second overall for NSW was Ashleigh Blenkiron with a 3rd fastest lap time, 3rd also in the ‘on bike’ technique and Public Speaking sectors and a stunning equal first in the fitness test.

Third place went to young 12 year old Tayla Jones who blew us all away with the second fastest lap time only to Jacqui Jones. Tayla finished second also in the ‘on bike’ technique, while finishing equal first with Blenkiron in the Fitness category. The public speaking sector being the only category preventing the young 12 year old from challenging our eventual winner Jacqui Jones for the overall.

The big ‘Final Showdown’ will be held this Sunday the 2nd November at Victorias Bacchus Marsh circuit just 45 minutes west of Melbourne where all seven state winners will go head to head in the four point scoring categories.
