Womens Yamaha rider Jessica Gardiner came away from the opening two rounds of the Australian Off Road Championship with a solid points haul after taking second overall.
Saturday's second did not come easy for Gardiner with crashes costing her valuable time on the technical tests allowing fellow Yamaha rider Jemma Wilson to take advantage.
Gardiner showed impressive speed in the afternoon race taking the holeshot aboard her WR250, leading the way until washing the front end close to the finish. Gardiner managed to re mount and hold onto second position for the day.
Sunday was a new day with Gardiner looking to put her Yamaha into the number one position but an early mistake made Gardiner have to work hard to make up the time lost.
"I had a crash up a rock face in the enduro test, A silly little mistake which cost me valuable time' Gardiner stated. 'I felt strong the rest of the day, the grass track tests were getting nice and rutted which made me more confident".
