Jehi Willis – Indee 500 2011 Winner.

The 2011 J & S Labour Hire Indee 500 is done and dusted, with 31 year old Victorian Jehi Willis taking out the outright win.

Willis was brought in to ride for Trailrider magazine. After an ordinary prologue by his standards, Willis fought his way through the dust on Saturday to be placed at the top end of the field, with an overall lead of about 14 minutes. Willis made the most of Sunday’s ride, riding virtually dust free and leading the rest of the field for the remaining 200 km. Willis laid down his fastest lap time on lap four, with a time of 1hr16mins for the 100 km loop.

Willis praised the event, going on to say how he loved the layed back and friendly nature of the whole weekend. He hopes to be back next year to defend his title.

  1. Great work Jamie as usual mate. We had 4 or maybe 5 riders do it from Albany. The Hitchcocks, Shane Pierce and Michael Steven, all did well.

    Cheers mate.

    • Thanks David. Had another great weekend up there. I had a call from the Albany Advertiser about the Albany boys, although they just wanted to credit my name, not pay me for the images!! You know what happened don’t you?? “Goodbye”!! The problem is getting worse!! Thanks for dropping by!
