Brother and Sister Rivalry…. Emily and Josh Noon live in Worcestershire, both racing with the Cotswold Club and are very passionate about motocross, both their own competing and also watching their idols on TV and in real life.
Emily has just turned 12 and is in her second year of racing, now on a KTM 85 in the SW85 class. Emily raced in the Juniors on her KTM 65 in her first year last year, and she managed to achieve 19th in her club championship amongst the boys with her best race finish being 9th, and a very rewarding 10th overall at the UK Girl Nationals weekend at Wroxton. Outside of motocross, Emily enjoys modern dancing, and again has won several regional competitions for duets and group dancing. She also enjoys athletics, swimming and trampolining (more medals and competition wins) and her role models in life are Jolene Van Vugt and Livia Lancelot.
Josh has just turned 10 is into his third year, and now on a KTM 65 in the Juniors. Josh raced in the Autos on his KTM 50 big wheel last year, and he claimed 3rd place in his club championship to take a step on the podium. He took 4th overall at the Wilden Auto GP and also raced two rounds of the National GT cup Championship, coming 16th overall at Wroxton, and 10th overall at Foxhills. He was part of the winning Cotswold Club at the BSMA team event in Rhayader, and despite an unlucky weekend of crashes, he managed 16th overall at the BSMA Finals. During the latter part of the year, he took several race and overall wins, and took the Phil Goodwin memorial shield at the Coventry Club’s Bonfire two day, winning both days overall and finally won the Cotswold Winter series with a race win maximum. Outside of motocross, Josh enjoys football, playing for his local team Drake’s Broughton Rangers, and also athletics, swimming and endlessly pushing a toy motocross bike around the furniture accompanied with lifelike noises wherever he sits! Although they both share the same passion on a bike, just like all brothers and sisters, once off the race track and back home, they’ll squabble over anything!
