It was back-to-back class wins for both Jessica Gardiner (Yamaha MX Store Ballards Off-Road Team) for Women‰Ûªs and Kirk Hutton (Yamaha Motor Australia) for Masters. In the Veterans class though, it was Damian Smith who took out the Round 6 win, knocking Dan Ralph off his Round 5 class win perch.

‰ÛÏI had a really good weekend down here at Kyogle. It‰Ûªs basically a home track for me and I found that the tracks really suited me. Today‰Ûªs WR 450F track was really great and the bike handled it well all day,‰Û
