A huge jump from 19th to 6th place in the British Women’s motox championships gives Georgie Potter European hopes by securing a place in the IMBA champs
Question: Tell me a bit about yourself
My name is Georgie Potter I’m 15 years old. I live in Colchester in Essex.
My local Enduro club is Sudbury MCC.
This has been my second year of motocross and I just keep on improving. Last year I came 19th overall. This year I came 6th in the Ladies Pro-class. On one specific track I was 20-23 seconds a lap quicker than last year.
Question: How has the BWMA helped you?
The BWMA has made me progress so much more than I thought I would. I have only previously done enduro and when I decided to do the BWMA I really struggled with the jumps. Just from racing with the girls and doing more and more jumps I have got more confident and comfortable with them.
Question: Who could you not do MX without?
My dad has always been my biggest support and sponsor. He puts so much time effort and a lot of money into my riding so I can improve and achieve my best. Without him I wouldn’t be able to do any of this. My dad is also the reason I got into the sport through enduro. This year my mum has got into a lot more into it and our family is like a team.
Question: What have you achieved this year?
The BWMA has given me such an amazing opportunity to race in Europe, I never thought I’d get this far, I have exceeded my own expectations and continue to do so. This winter I plan on moving up to a 250 and practising and improving to then achieve even better next season.
