2018 E3 Champion Daniel Milner (KTM Enduro Racing Team) will move across to the E2 class this season, enjoying the smaller bike on the harsh Australian terrain. Riding upon his successes from 2018, Milner is expected to lead the pack when the Championship commences this weekend, so keep an eye on him!
Returning once again after finishing the 2018 season in fourth place in the E1 class is Jeremy Carpentier (Yamaha MX Store Ballards Off-Road Team). The Frenchman used last year to gain control of the Australian terrain and will come into the new 2019 season with a newfound confidence.
Joshua Green (Active8 Yamaha Yamalube), who finished the 2018 season in third place, looks to be in fine form for 2019! Regularly landing some of the fastest times, Green is one to watch if you can keep your eye on him.
Like Milner, Broc Grabham has moved across from the E3 class and will be another major contender for podium real estate as the season progresses after finishing behind Milner in third place for 2018.
Moving on up to a bigger bike this season after taking out the E2 crown in 2018 is Daniel Sanders (Husqvarna Enduro Racing Team). After a fantastic 2018 which included being a member of the victorious Australian World Trophy Team at the ISDE, Sanders is back for 2019 with a new title to contend for!
Finishing fourth in 2018 for AORC and chosen as a member of the 2018 ISDE Australian Junior World Trophy Team, Andy Wilksch (Motul Pirelli Sherco Team) is sure to feature regularly on the 2019 E3 podium.
Beau Ralston is back in 2019 after a difficult few seasons in AORC. Ralston, aboard a new Husqvarna bike, will move back up to a bigger bike where he seems most comfortable. With a fire in his belly, Ralston is sure to be a major contender this year as he goes up against the likes of Sanders and Wilksch.
Another competitor from Western Australia is Jesse Lawton, who returns to the 2019 AORC season after finishing last year in sixth place. A highly competitive rider, Lawton is expected to be a major contender for podium time this season, so keep your eyes on him.
