Riding from a very young age, Joshua Beetham lives and breathes Speedway! A Berrinba local, Beetham is gearing for this Friday’s 2019 Australian U16 125cc Speedway Championship at the Ipswitch Switches Junior Motorcycle Speedway Club, where he is going head to head with the likes of James Pearson. To give his fans an insight into his training regime and life outside of Speedway, Beetham recently sat down with Motorcycling Australia to dish the dirt.
