AORC

Chris Hollis and Daniel Milner Find Kyogle Podium

Posted:

CDR Yamaha Off Road‰Ûªs duo of Chris Hollis and Daniel Milner racked up the podium time with both riders finishing in the top three at rounds nine and ten of the Australian Off Road Championship held under clear blue skies in Kyogle, NSW.

The weekend marked a return to form for Hollis. After struggling to post the results he expected of himself at the last two events, Hollis bounced back strongly at the Kyogle round and put his Yamaha WR450F on the podium on both days.

Hollis finished second on Saturday and then racked up another second on Sunday in one of his best performances of the year and a real confidence booster heading into the final rounds and also the A4DE in the coming months.

Hollis holds down fourth in the Outright standings and 3rd in the premier E2 division.

‰ÛÏThe last couple of rounds have been a little sandy based and that‰Ûªs not my best surface so I was really looking forward to the Kyogle weekend,‰Ûª Hollis explained. ‰ÛÏI felt good right from the start and it was nice to post a good result on Saturday and I was much more relaxed heading into Sunday.

‰ÛÏThe WR was great in these conditions and I was within 10 seconds of the lead on both days so it was pretty tight. It‰Ûªs good to leave here with a good result and look forward to the coming events."

For any other rider, two third place finishes at a national championship round would be a great result, but not Daniel Milner. Milner finished third on both days, right in the shadow of team mate Hollis, but wasn‰Ûªt impressed with his weekend and acknowledges there is work to be done.

Despite missing two rounds sue to his ankle injury, Milner currently sits in fifth Outright after 10 rounds, fourth in the E2 class.

‰ÛÏI won the last round after coming off my ankle injury, but that weekend kept me from riding and training the following week which was a setback." Milner explained. "I felt I lacked some fitness over the weekend and also I need to brush up on riding hard pack dirt as you need to be a little smoother on the brakes and throttle.

‰ÛÏWith the A4DE, I6DE and the final rounds of the AORC approaching, I need to work hard on those two things so I‰Ûªm 100%,‰Û
