Beau Ralston Leads Home Yamaha’s 2016 Finke Effort


Active8 Yamaha‰Ûªs Beau Ralston finished a commendable fifth outright and second in class at the Finke Desert race held near Alice Springs, over the weekend.

Ralston, mounted on his WR450F, produced a good performance in what is one of Australia‰Ûªs toughest and unique events as more than 400 riders compete on a 460 kilometre course over two days in a mad dash to determine the winner.

After experiencing a crash during pre-running the course and then a slow start to the run down to Finke on day one where he sat in seventh place, Ralston picked up the pace on the return to Alice Springs, beating his previous personal best time, and landed in fifth place outright when he crosed the finishline.

His combined times were good enough for second place in the 251cc to 450cc bike category, a result that satisfied Beau and his Active8 Yamaha team.

‰ÛÏIt‰Ûªs a tough event,‰Û
