We had the pleasure of catching up with pocket rocket Megzy Barker ahead of the World Cup in Mandurah, Perth, Australia.
After three weeks intensive training out with LDB and Chain of Wakes out in Florida, the Bradford nutter is primed and loaded for the ‘invite only’ world class competition. With new tricks in the bag including a skeezer (switch crow mobe) she stands to hold her own against top riders the likes of Raimi Merrit, Melissa Marquart, Amber Wing and Nicola Butler.

How excited are you about Perth?
It’s 6 in the morning over there and 21 degrees already! Sweet! I’ve not been to Aus before, so I’m looking forward to shrimps on’T barbie!
I’m really excited, I’m nervous though obviously. I don’t know what to expect but it’s going to be fun!
Its a real privilege to be invited to the World Cup, what does this mean to you?
I’m really honoured. Last year I was there on a replacement spot for an injured rider, but this year I was invited. And that’s awesome! I’ve worked really hard and I hope I don’t sound big headed, but I feel really pleased with myself, like I deserve it.
You’ve been training here in Florida for the past three weeks. How ready are you?
I just want to enjoy it, as long as I do my best then I’m ready! As long as I enjoy it! I should be fine!
We hope you’ll join us in wishing her all the very best next weekend. Get your coffee on the boil as it’ll be an all-nighter!
