The 2019 Yamaha Australian Off-Road Championship (AORC) lands in its final destination for the season this weekend with Rounds 10 and 11 at Hedley, VIC and the riders are ready and raring to go again for the ever familer Hedley track.
Eight Champions will be crowned this weekend and their names etched into the AORC history books. Luke Styke (E1), Daniel Milner (E2), Kyron Bacon (EJ) Jess Gardiner (Women’s), and Lee Stephens (Veterans) will be out to claim glory as they each hold the lead in class. Daniel Sanders (E3) and Kirk Hutton (Masters) have already wrapped up their respective championships in the previous rounds in South Australia.
Whilst on the Junior scene Black Hollis returns from injury in a bid to win the J4 Championship from current leader Mackenzie Johnson. Riley McGillivray (J3) and Billy Hargy (J2) will look to hold on to their class leads as they strive for gold.
A second cross country for the year will welcome riders for Saturday’s racing. Juniors will kick off racing from 7:30am with Seniors (Masters, Women & two stroke cup) from 11:00am and the E1, E2, E3, EJ and Vets class from 1:30 in a three-hour battle.
On Sunday the field will split into two and finish off the year with a sprint format in an effort to taste the ultimate championship and podium success for many.
