Braico and Bewley Content With SA AORC Results


Husaberg Enduro Racing Team riders Geoff Braico and Jarrod Bewley made a good fist of trying conditions as rounds seven and eight of the AORC championship unfolded in South Australia ‰ÛÒ but like all top-level racers‰Û_ they wanted more.

Geoff Braico moved from 12th to 10th in overall classification after kicking off the weekend in stunning fashion, with fifth outright on his Husaberg FE350 on Saturday despite a couple of unscheduled dismounts.

His ninth overall on Sunday ‰ÛÒ a mere five seconds in arrears of the rider in 6th outright ‰ÛÒ aptly illustrates the intensity and competitiveness of AORC racing in 2014.

‰ÛÏThis weekend was pretty nice, the bike was awesome and everything was good." Braico stated. "I got fifth overall and ninth overall today ‰ÛÒ it‰Ûªs all super-close, and unfortunately, I binned it in one of the laps today so that was a bit of a downer.

"I managed to post some pretty good times here ‰ÛÒ it was a pretty good weekend for me actually.

"I‰Ûªm trying to be less hot and cold with it, trying to be more consistent. I‰Ûªd like to finish inside the top ten every single race. Yesterday I finished fifth overall and that was fourth in E2 ‰ÛÒ the guys who were ahead of me were all full-time riders so it was nice to be close to those boys.

"The tracks were perfect and she was a pretty solid weekend so I‰Ûªm happy about it. I really want to thank all my sponsors and Drew, my mechanic.‰Û

Husaberg FE501-mounted E3 representative Jarrod Bewley would be quick to agree that he struggled to find the perfect setup for Penola‰Ûªs unique combination of whoops, sand and pine forest racing, and only managing eighth Outright, though he would have to be satisfied with another pair of seconds in the big-bore class behind tearaway leader Glenn Kearney.

‰ÛÏSaturday started off pretty slow and I just struggled with my setup for the track a little bit." Bewley commented. "It took me the whole day to feel comfortable on it.

"I tried a little bit of a different setup but it wasn‰Ûªt great. I finished eighth outright and second in class, the same as today, but today I felt a lot stronger. I found a better setup and stuck with it all day.

"I felt a little bit more comfortable, but eighth is definitely not where I want to be ‰ÛÒ I‰Ûªd rather be further up front. Close racing is always hard racing and you‰Ûªve got to be on your game, you can‰Ûªt be going there with questions in your mind about your setup.

"That‰Ûªs where I struggled this weekend, and it showed. Now I‰Ûªm looking forward to Hattah and the next AORC round where I can try to get back up there," he concluded.
