What a sensational turnout for round 1 and 2 of the Yamaha Australian Off-Road Championship, presented by MXstore.
Future Is Bright
With record entries and nearly 100 junior boys and girls kicking off our expanded 15 classes of competition, with new junior classes, the return of the 2 Stroke Cup and continuation of all senior classes it was a great weekend.
More than 280 riders competed in the first two rounds, a record for the first round of the championship and one that we hope will be beaten as the year moves forward and the championship grows.
With new classes, and the Yamaha and OffRoad Advantage initiative – Yamaha Off-Road Tech and Tips (YORTT) – getting its first run, it was great to see the junior riders getting specialised coaching from Australian and world champion riders. Our next edition at Dungog, NSW will give our Juniors an insight on how to master the enduro scene.
Motocross – Off Road Love Affair
It was also great to see Australia’s premier motocross talent coming over to the Yamaha Australian Off-Road Championship including in the E1 class KTM Enduro Racing Teams, Mason Semmens, in E2 class Husqvarna Australia backed Todd Waters and in the E3 class Callum Norton, all were able to podium across the weekend and have proved there in for the long and will be challenging for their respective class championships.
A massive thanks to our partners and sponsors Yamaha Motors Australia, Mxstore and Ballard’s and Offroad Advantage who successfully helped us kick off the first two rounds and will be support the 2020 championship, we are excited to have them on board as we look to continue on the success.
Toowoomba Motorcycle Club Put on Show
A big thanks to the Toowoomba Motorcycle Club and its members for preparing sensational tracks for the start of the championship, particularly as in the lead up to the event they had significant rain fall which hampered their preparations.
Keep an eye out for our highlights video that will drop at approximately 7pm tonight on Facebook and Youtube
