Fraser Higlett Smashes Yeppoon Enduro-X

Posted:

He might only be in Grade 10 at high school, but Husqvarna‰Ûªs newly-crowned AORC Junior 4 Champion Fraser Higlett made all the grown-ups sit up and take notice when he won the all-ages shootout at the weekend's 2015 Yeppoon Enduro-X in Central Queensland.

Brisbane rider Higlett, who won the Australian Enduro-X Junior Lites Championship back in March, made the trip to Yeppoon near Rockhampton to test his mettle against the national-standard course ‰ÛÒ and the field of 100-plus riders which also included Australian Erzberg veteran Rob Nowak.

In the Junior Lites class, Higlett powered his Husqvarna FE 250 to a comfortable victory over Jack Williams and Jaymie Warr on the Keppel Coast Dirt Bike Club‰Ûªs sizeable, flowing course that combined obstacles from the existing motocross track with more typical enduro-x fare, such as man-made log mounds, rock piles, mining vehicle tires and beach sand.

His Junior Lites duties completed however, Higlett competed in the Dash for Cash, where his one, blazing fast lap of the circuit was quick enough to give him victory ahead of Nowak and talented Brisbane all-rounder Ruben Chadwick.

‰ÛÏThere's not many Enduro-X races around so I thought I might as well do this one. The track was a sort of a different style of enduro cross; it wasn't as tight and technical as the nationals - it was faster and a bit flowier. They put a lot of effort into the track and ran probably one of the best race meetings I've been to all year." Higlett commented.

"I took out the junior Lites and then in the afternoon they had a sort of Dash for Cash thing with all the top riders for the day. I went pretty hard and I was just trying not to fall off! I sort of put it all on the line at the end of it to get the win, so that was my hardest lap of the day, and I beat Rob Nowak and Reuben Chadwick, so that was pretty good.

"Rob Nowak came like around 30th at Erzberg so it was pretty cool to be racing against him. We spoke a bit because I went down to his coaching thing on Friday, and had a bit to do with him then. The coaching was pretty good he went into detail about all of the separate obstacles on the track and how to ride them.

"He said he was pretty impressed with me, so I'm pretty stoked to hear that from someone like him. I was the only one in the dash the cash on a Husqvarna so that feels pretty good ‰ÛÒ Reppin for Husqvarna!‰Û
