CDR Yamaha‰Ûªs Chris Hollis hit his stride at rounds five and six of the Australian Off Road Championship, held in South Australia, where he claimed a round win and a podium position, to surge into championship contention as the series reached the half way point.
Tom McCormack also made gains in his form and began to show the speeds he is capable of to hit the class podium for the first time this year in a good confidence booster for the talented rider.
Measured by his lofty standards, Chris Hollis has made a slow start to the year but with each round he has continued to make progress in his racing and round five at Murray Bridge saw the New South Welshman hit his straps and take a convincing round win, both in Outright and E2 class honour.
Hollis, who had been building at each round hit the ground running, winning five of the seven special tests conducted to take an emphatic victory for the round. The only spoiler came when he fell awkwardly late in the day.
