The New Zealand KawiGirls initiative was started by offroad ambassador Mikayla Rowe in 2019 with the goal to create events for the enjoyment of riding with fun days, social twilight rides and campouts rather than for competition.
Mikayla is no slouch in her own right with 4 national titles to her name and found herself resenting the high-pressure competitive environment, before finding enjoyment again in riding for the social aspect.
Courtney Duncan needs no introduction. 3-time World Motocross champion headlined the inaugural Kings & Queens events held in 2020 and is set to be back in 2022 to put on a show for the crowd.
Courtney rides for UK-based team Dixon Racing Team and will make her guest appearance aboard a KX250 similar to what she races abroad. Hailing from Palmerston, near Dunedin, Duncan is a spectacle to watch and has set the bar as an inspiration for all New Zealand ladies who ride.
Zara is an 18-year old rising star based out of Bay of Plenty who rides for the Bridgestone Kawasaki Race Team.
Zara’s skill and aggression is impressive to witness and she will be set to make an impression having missed the past season due to injury.
