Active8 Yamaha Pounds The Podium At Boyland

Posted:

Active8 Yamaha riders continued to log the class podiums at rounds three and four of the Australian Off Road Championships (AORC) with another successful weekend at Boyland in Queensland.

The warm and dusty conditions were well suited to the Queensland based team with all four riders showing good speed over the weekend, with three of the landing on the podium.

Tom McCormack leads the way as he tops the list in the E1 (Under 250cc) division after four rounds. McCormack finished second at round three on Saturday but returned fired up for the Sunday competition and won the round and moving him to the top of the E1 class and a very respectable eighth outright.

‰ÛÏIt‰Û÷s still early in the season and I‰Ûªm trying to be as consistent as possible at every round. The dust made it hard to push on the weekend so I tried to ride at a fast but safe pace and fortunately, that was good enough for a 2-1 finish over the weekend.

‰ÛÏWe still have eight rounds to go and I‰Ûªm off to a good start but I have to keep up the riding and the training as we have a long way to go and there are some great riders in the E1 division this year,‰Û

Josh Green continues to post solid results as his return from an arm injury appears to be a distant memory. Green was seventh outright on Saturday, fifth in the E2 class, but improved several spots on Sunday to finish third in both outright and class.

Green now sits third Outright on his YZ450F and is tied for second place with Chris Hollis in the E2 class honours.

‰ÛÏSaturday wasn‰Ûªt great but if that‰Ûªs the worst I can do, then I will take it." Green admitted. "Sunday was better I was able to ride with a bit more flow and get some pretty good special tests results.

‰ÛÏWith all the top guys bunched up in the points, the rider who makes the least mistakes is going to the one to beat and it‰Ûªs going to make for an exciting championship.‰Û
