Lily discovered her love for motocross as a child when her dad would take her for rides on his bike after returning from racing himself. Getting her first bike, a KX 65, at the age of eight, she knew motocross was the sport for her:
“I tried pony’s and all the girly stuff but it didn’t give me a buzz like I get from motocross, I love the adrenaline it gives me! Especially beating the boys!”
This year, Lily rode for team GB in the IMBA European Ladies Championships and finished 7th in the Ladies Pro Class (BWMA). With a successful motocross career ahead of her, getting focused and in the zone is an important part of preparing to race. She’s pulled together 10 songs for our monthly Jacks Tracks playlist, that get her motivated and ready to ride.
“I would say about half of the songs I have picked are very upbeat and I find that dance music gets me in the zone…
“The other half, all completely different genres of music but they all get me in the mood and pumped up for riding, I don’t always listen to music before I ride but I do find it helps to get me to get more motivated!”
