Reigning Australian women’s motocross champion Meghan Rutledge has announced she’ll step away from racing ahead of the 2020 season.

Rutledge will shift her focus on her personal training and coaching career, however will retain support from long-time sponsor Kawasaki Motors Australia in an ambassador role.

“After an incredible 2019 season that included taking out back-to-back national women’s motocross and Queen of MX Titles, 2020 holds new opportunities to grow outside of motocross competition,” Rutledge explained. “I will be stepping away from competitive racing and focusing on my career with coaching and personal training.

“Motocross is in my blood, I will continue to ride for fun, be a coach and mentor the next generation. I am excited for what 2020 has in store for me and thrilled to still be working closely with all my current sponsors as an ambassador.

“I would like to take the opportunity to thank my sponsors for the support over many years. Sponsorship support has enabled me to win eight championship titles in the past two years.”
