It was a weekend of mixed emotions for the Active8 Yamalube Yamaha team as all three riders faced challenges all weekend at rounds five and six of the Australian Off Road Championship, held in Murray Bridge, South Australia.
Crashes, injuries and tough luck all conspired to make it a difficult weekend for the team but despite the issues, Josh Green, Beau Ralston and Tayla Jones all continued to fight for the best results possible and are still well placed as the championship hits the halfway stage.
Josh Green entered the South Australian round carrying an injury from the previous event and was undoubtedly well below 100%. Green had been a front runner at the opening four rounds and ready to mount a charge for the lead but with his current injury he had to ride conservatively and manage his body through a big weekend of racing.
Green was eighth outright on Saturday and third in the E2 class in a very determined effort. Unfortunately, Sunday wasn‰Ûªt as easy and Green battled his way to 12th Outright and fifth in class. Is gallant effort has kept him fifth in the championship chase for outright honours while he still holds down third in the E2 class on his WR450F.
