The 2018 Yamaha Australian Off-Road Championship (AORC) is back this weekend with Rounds 5 & 6 at Dungog, NSW and the riders are ready and raring after a mid season break. Daniel Milner (E3), Daniel Sanders (E2), Luke Styke (E1) and Michael Driscoll (EJ) will all be out to improve their points lead after taking overall victories at Rounds 3 & 4. The weekend will also see the first time-carded enduro of the season for both Juniors and Seniors on Saturday and Sunday.
Both Saturday and Sunday’s time carded enduro will see the competitors taking on two tests, the Cross Test and the Enduro Test. The Cross Test is a grass based track that will see the riders open their bikes up over the 3.5kms. The Enduro Test on the other hand is quite tight and techincal and will test the riders throughout the 4.8kms. The trail will also test the riders fitness, covering just over 40km of tough tight terrain. This weekend will see the AORC field of over 220 riders ready to take on the conditions at Dungog.
