Charli Cannon wins the Women’s championship at the final round of the 2022 Penrite ProMX.

Cannon claims the Women’s championship at the final round of the 2022 Penrite ProMX at the Coolum Pines circuit on the Sunshine Coast.

Charli Cannon’s season domination continued over the weekend as she finished first in both WMX motos to take the 2022 Women’s ProMX Championship.Cannon had a nervous early jump at the start of the first race, slamming her front wheel into the starting gate before it dropped. She was able to pull back and get clear but the entire field had already raced off. Within the first lap, she was back to second position, then back in the lead midway through the race.Race two was a clear holeshot, leading every lap to take the race win by nearly 30 seconds. That make six wins from six starts and a show of complete domination in the WMX season.#7 Charli Cannon (Yamaha) at Round 8 ProMX Championship, Coolum in Coolum, Queensland.<br /> Shot for Foremost Media by Marc Jones Photography.<br /> Image Details<br /> Camera: Canon Canon EOS-1D X Mark II<br /> Lens: EF24-70mm f/2.8L II USM<br /> f 7.1<br /> 1/500 sec<br /> ISO 500<br /> Credit: Marc Jones<br /> Date: 21 August 2022“The weekend has been a little overwhelming with so much going on,” she begins. “Friday we had a women’s rider day, Saturday was qualifying and race one, Sunday was race two and with this being my local track, I had so many friends and family out to support me.“I was a bit jumpy before race one and I thought I saw the gate move, so I gassed it, but I just ploughed straight into it so that was a little embarrassing but once I was going, things were back to normal and I was able to ride my way to the front.“The second race was more about dealing with the track. It was rough out there and this track can get you if you don’t stay focussed so I kept my mind on the job and was able to get another race win.

“It feels good to win this championship and I must thank ProMX, Motorcycling Australia and all the girls that entered the rounds for making it happen. It’s been a great series and hopefully it can continue to grow, and we can get more girls involved and keep it progressing.

“It’s been amazing to be with Yamaha again this year and the Yamalube Yamaha team have been so good to me. I can’t thank them enough for the effort they go to for my racing with Mike and Nash always making sure I have everything I need and my bikes are perfect.

“And I must mention all the people who bought a jersey on the weekend and raised money for me to go to Turkey next week. I still can’t believe people will do that for me and I’m so grateful for what they did for me and my family today,” Cannon says emotionally.

Charli Cannon has been invited to compete in the final round of the 2022 FIM Motocross World Championship in the WMX division, in Turkey this September.
