A Fiery Opening Round See Styke, Milner, Chucky and McMahon Take Out The First Podiums.
To call the conditions here in Toowoomba as pristine would hardly do it justice. Kicking off Round 1 of the Yamaha Australian Off-Road Championship presented by MXstore, our Senior‰Ûªs tackled the WR450F test track for Sprints, under a blue sky and atop lush grass.

With bodies rested and minds fresh, Round 1 presents new challenges to our riders, including new faces in the field and first round nerves. Coming out on top today and setting 2020 out on the best foot was Luke Styke (Yamaha Active8 Yamalube), Daniel Milner (KTM Enduro Racing Team), Daniel ‰ÛÏChucky‰Û

E2
As he said at the Press Launch earlier this week, the 2019 racing season was one he wanted to forget. But after the day he just had, regardless of the spill early in the day, Milner has held onto his E2 reign.

Clocking in at 54:39.515, Milner lead comfortably ahead of newcomer and MX Nationals Champion, Todd Waters (Berry Sweet, Husqvarna).

Waters made a big and welcome splash into the E2 class today, shaking up the competition by clocking in an impressive total time of 55:27.309.

Closing out the top three was Yamaha Active8 Yamalube‰Ûªs Josh Green, who finished ahead of Michael Driscoll (Yamaha bLU cRU Off-Road Racing Team) with a total time of 55:36.369.

‰ÛÏToday started off strong but I ran into some trouble and came off the bike and I‰Ûªm lucky that I was able to get back up and continue riding, honestly,‰Û

E3
With the number one firmly locked onto his Husqvarna FE501, Chucky remained his insatiably unstoppable self. Regardless of a crash early into today‰Ûªs tests, Chucky did as he does best and pushed through, grinning and bearing it to clock in a time of 55:21.276.

Shaking up the E3 class on the 300 two stroke is Motul Pirelli Sherco Offroad Racing Team‰Ûªs Jonte Reynders, who took out second placed today behind the International Six Days Enduro World Champion. Rounding out the podium was Callum Norton (KTM Desert Racing Team), with a total time of 57:09.295.
