Enduro and Off-Road champion Chris Hollis retires
Tomorrow‰Ûªs fourth and final day of the 2016 Australian Four Day Enduro will mark the final day of competition for CDR Yamaha‰Ûªs, Chris Hollis.

The 32 year old New South Welshmen has decided the time is right to retire from professional racing at the end of this years‰Ûª event and begin the next chapter of his life.

The long time off road racer is looking forward to his final day of racing and at the same time reflecting back over a long and distinguished career.

‰ÛÏIt will be a day of mixed emotions for me as racing has played such a huge part of my life and there are so many aspects that I will miss. The friends made along the way, seeing places you wouldn‰Ûªt normally go and being able to see the world with the freedom of riding a motorcycle are all things that mean the most to me.

‰ÛÏBut I feel the time is right to step down from racing at this level and explore other options in my life, so I‰Ûªm excited to see what the future brings.

‰ÛÏI would like to thank so many people who have been a part of my racing over the last 20 years. The teams and sponsors I have raced for, my family and friends for their continued support and the hundreds of people that made racing fun.‰Û

Chris Hollis in action
Hollis has been a multi time Australian Off-Road champion, winning in 2008 and 2011, as well winning the 2008 Australian Four Day Enduro. He has represented Australia six times at the International Six Day Enduro (I6DE) and won a gold medal on every campaign. He even competed at the X- Games in 2014 and the Erzberg Rodeo in 2008.

He has also been a member of the Yamaha supported off road teams twice during his career, once under the guidance of Geoff Ballard and the other with CDR Yamaha and Craig Dack.

‰ÛÏI have been with Yamaha for the majority of my career and they have been a fantastic supporter of not just myself but also off road racing in Australia. Both Geoff and Craig have been friends and mentors of mine and I respect both guys in what they have done for my career. I have made some great friends within Yamaha and will continue to be a part of the Yamaha family in the future.

‰ÛÏThank you to Yamaha as they have allowed me to fulfill a childhood dream of being a professional racer. It really is the best job in the world,‰Û
