Racing is a part of life

SHE’S been riding motor cross since she was 2 years old and racing since she was 6 years old, and with her track record filled with trophies and medals already, local resident, Madi Healey says that racing is a big part of her life.

Having recently placed second in the MX Nationals, it was her 2018 KTM 85 SX Big Wheel that got her over the line.

The bike, which she only got two days before the event at the end of last month, was slightly modified to be race ready, with AJ Motorcycles in Shepparton raising the seat, installing a bigger carburettor and tuning the suspension.

Madi said, “I like the KTM brand of bike because it looks good and it’s a lot faster than my old 85, and a lot bigger.

“It’s smooth to ride and suitable for my style of riding.”
