All of our Queensland Squad will be introduced in the lead up to the Championships so you can get to know and follow our team members.

The CEO of MNSW, Dave Cooke is supremely confident that his NSW team will dominate the Nationals; “Just look at our team line up! There’s some sublime talent there, but I guess we’re used to that in NSW. Everyone knows NSW produces the best motorcyclists in pretty much every discipline there is. Chad Reed, Dean Ferris, Casey Stoner, Jess Gardiner, Kristie McKinnon, the list is endless. It’s national and world champs as far as the eye can see here in NSW. I even offered the other State CEO’s a bit of a side bet, winner gets the deeds to all the losers office buildings, but none of them would be in it. I think they’re all worried they’ll lose.”
