Off-road champion moves in

A FEW broken hands, feet, ankles and concussions are small pains for living the dream, according to off-road international motorcycling champion and new Stroud local Josh Green.

The world champion bike rider was at his new home on 150 acres near Stroud, getting ready for this year’s racing season.

It begins with a state event in Queensland followed by the national competition in mid March.

The ‘Finke’ (Finke Desert Race) is one of the biggest annual sporting events in the Northern Territory and has the reputation of being one of the most difficult off-road courses in one of the most remote places in the world.

It’s two days of racing, we do 240km one day one way, then 240km back again, all up it’s 480km,” Josh said, adding that he had been practising at high speed.

“I’ve done it three times.”

In between Australian events, it’s the world’s trails beckoning Green onwards, with Yamaha taking six of its best Australian riders on a journey all over the world to compete. Last year, Josh formed part of the Australian Enduro Bike Team, which stood on the winning International Six Days Enduro podium in first place.
