Edenhope in Victorias West threw everything it had at the 2024 Australian Off-Road Championship riders for the sixth round of the championship.

Round 6 Sprints featured dust as far as the eye can see, sprinkled with some rain in the afternoon, just to mix things up.

The Seniors moved onto the Offroad Advantage track and after five Sprints, consecutive wins were clinched by Kyron Bacon in E1, Daniel Milner in E2, Jye Dickson in E3 and Danielle McDonald in EW. Over in EJ though, Davey Gear stole the show and claimed the top step.

Milner once again claimed the fastest overall time, finishing with a total time of 36:39.765.

E1
Kyron Bacon had a slower than usual start, losing the first Test to rival, Korey McMahon. As the day wore on though, Bacon was a sight to be seen as he screamed across the Offroad Advantage track. After five Sprints, Bacon won the day in E1 with a total time of 37:02.818. McMahon settled for second place, thanks to a total time of 38:04.495. Behind McMahon in third was once again Tom Buxton. Buxton clocked off Round 6 with a total time of 39:42.850.

E2
Daniel Milner was in fine form, for day two. Claiming another consecutive E2 win and the fastest overall time once again, you wouldn’t even know the Victorian racer was injured recently.

Jonte Reynders took away a consecutive second place finish’s, fending off the likes of Will Dennett and Thynan Kean. Reynders clocked off with a total time of 37:02.921.

Although the sand suits Dennett, he couldn’t quite crack the second-place spot, settling instead for a consecutive third place finish. Dennett ended Round 6 with a total time of 38:16.078.

E3
Edenhope has been the perfect weekend for Jye Dickson. Claiming back-to-back E3 wins, the Beta rider is looking like prime competition for the 2024 Championship title. At home on the sandy Offroad Advantage track, Dickson finished Round 6 with a total time of 37:41.601.

Stefan Granquist clocked off with a total time of 38:28.617 and the second-place spot, just ahead Billy Hargy. With just over 30 seconds difference between the duo, E3 is heating up as the action increases. Hargy settled for third place, with a total time of 39:07.011.

EW
Danielle McDonald is sure to be celebrating as she leaves Edenhope and Victoria. With three consecutive EW wins, McDonald is quickly becoming a strong contender for the 2024 EW Championship title. McDonald finished five Sprints across the Offroad Advantage track with a total time of 44:40.880.

Fellow teammate and 2023 Champion, Jess Gardiner was hot on McDonald’s heels all day. After five Sprints though, the Yamaha racer just couldn’t quite beat McDonald’s speeds and settled instead, for second place. Gardiner clocked off with a total time of 45:59.479.

Not far behind and claiming the third and final podium spot, was Emelie Karlsson. Karlsson continues to protect the bronze medal. The Husqvarna racer finished Round 6 with a total time of 46:10.748.

EJ
All the action was found in EJ today! Jett Yarnold had a less than desirable start to Round 6, leaving the top step wide open for Gear to claim. Although Yarnold pushed hell for leather all day, he couldn’t cover the building time difference made by Gear and the likes of Eli Tripcony and Oliver Paterno.

Gear had a fantastic day, managing to sit right up the top of EJ for all five Sprints. Gear leaves Edenhope with a well earnt EJ win and a total time of 38:52.124.

Tripcony claimed silver, ahead of Paterno who claimed bronze. Their respective total times today were 40:36.118 and 40:55.568.

“Round 6 was a tough one,” explained Gear.

“It featured lots of fast straights, with dry and dusty conditions, mixed with rough, sandy corners. Plus, the competition was unreal in EJ – really, really tough competition.”

The next heads north to Queensland Moto Park for Rounds 7 & 8.
