The Yamaha Australian Off-Road Australian Championship, presented by MXStore, will see the return of a massive 14 classes of competition for 2021.
2020 saw a record number of riders enter with expanded classes and the AORC Management Team are pleased that in 2021 there will again be 14 classes of highly competitive competition from junior girls and National Cup classes, 2 Stroke Cup, and Womens, E1, E2 and E3 classes which have produced several World Champion riders.
With all 14 Championship classes set to continue in 2021 there will be something for all types of riders, from our Juniors to the World’s best off-road riders.
Returning for 2021 will be the Junior Girls 85cc to 200cc 2-stroke and 150cc to 250cc 4-stroke bikes for those aged 12 to under 16-years-old at all rounds. The National Cup Classes – the 85cc 2-stroke and 150cc 4-stroke (SW) and Junior 65cc Cup – for those aged 9 to under 12-years-old.
Also returning in 2021 is the successful and competitive 2 Stroke Cup.
The EJ development class continues where under 18 riders can compare their times against the E1, E2, and E3 classes in the hope to step up later in the year or the following year.
Motorcycling Australia Off-Road Events Manager, Matthew Falvo, said the 2021 Australian Off-Road Championship was shaping up to be the best yet.
“We are very excited for the 2021 season with 14 classes of competition returning, significant rider interest, and new venues for the Championship, we can’t wait to get the season under way,” Mr Falvo said.
“We saw last year the fantastic competition in our junior classes and we hope to continue to help them develop in 2021 and hopefully like our AORC and World Champion Daniel Sanders, they too can become future AORC and World ISDE Champions.
“Again, we will have significant support from key industry sponsors for the 2021 season to make our Championship even better.
“With new venues in 2021 as well as returning some old stomping grounds which are rider favourites, we believe next year will be even bigger and better.”
