Following a three-month long break after Dungog, the Yamaha Australian Off-Road Championship (AORC) has returned with an almighty bang in Kyogle, New South Wales (NSW), for Rounds 5 & 6.

Featuring back-to-back Sprint formats, our E1, E2, E3 and EJ classes were challenged with two highly technical tests, the Yamaha WR 450F and the Off Road Advantage.

Coming out on top after a multitude of riders tasting the glory of being fastest in their class was Fraser Higlett for E1, Daniel Milner for E2, Daniel ‰ÛÏChucky‰Û

In E2, it was a fiery battle between Active8 Yamaha Yamalube's Josh Green and Milner for top spot, but after a long and challenging day, it was Milner who finished in first place with a total time of 1:31:51.997. With both Green and Milner battling injuries, this feat was another testament to their profession. Green finished today in second with a total time of 1:33:38.524. Rounding out the E2 podium for Round 5 was Jeremy Carpentier, with a total time of 1:36:36.181.

Milner also confirmed that Round 5 marks a change from a 350 to 450cc KTM.

‰ÛÏWe‰Ûªve moved on up to a 450cc from this round onwards. I‰Ûªm really enjoying the new bike but with the addition of my injury, today was a tough day,‰Û

Round 5 marked a fantastic moment for current E3 2019 title leader, Chucky, as he succeeded in collecting first place and also clocked in the fastest time of the day, 1:30:23.121. Following on from his podium finish earlier this year at Finke Desert Race, Beau Ralston took second place in E3, with a total time of 1:34:25.846. Third place was awarded to Andy Wilksch, who has maintained his consistently dominant presence at the front of the pack, finishing today with a total time of 1:36:35.324.

At points it looked like his victory reign might well be ending but true to form, Bacon brought it home today to take out the EJ Round 5 win. Clocking in a total time of 1:41:50.353, Bacon finished ahead of Kessner Motorcycles' Cooper Sheidow, who took second place with a time of 1:45:48.459. Nathan Howe stole away the third and final podium position from Nowra Motorcycles' Josh Brierley, finishing Round 5 with a total time of 1:46:30.201.

We return tomorrow for Round 6 of the 2019 AORC season, featuring another Sprint racing format, with our E1, E2, E3 and EJ classes tackling two back-to-back tests to decide who will take home the glory.
