Conditions where pristine for the junior classes at Hedley, Victoria for the penultimate Round 10 of the 2019 Yamaha Australian Off-Road Championship (AORC)..

Quick to use the black clay and sandy conditions to their advantage in the junior ranks, Blake Hollis, Riley McGillivray and Billy Hargy ruled the roost in J4, J3 and J2.

Over six laps racing Cross Country around the WR 450F track, McGillivray also walked away from the round with the 2019 AORC J3 Championship against his name!

J4
Making his much anticipated return to the AORC pits after an injury ruled him out of Rounds 8 & 9, Hollis was a demon behind the handlebars right from the starting line. Regardless of injury and the exhaustion he felt after two hours aboard his Yamaha, Hollis returned to first place in J4 with a total time of 2:04:10.723. Just 3.338 seconds behind and clearly keen to carry on his success in Coonalpyn, Sam Pretscherer screamed across the finish line this morning into second place with a total time of 2:04:14.061.

Rounding out the podium today in J4 was Mackenzie Johnson (Motocity Yamaha), who prior to Hedley was sitting atop the J4 leader board for 2019. Johnson finished his six laps with a total time of 2:08:37.644.

‰ÛÏToday went alright. I had a better than normal start and the original leader went down so I could take the lead,‰Û

J3
He‰Ûªs the man of the moment today in the AORC pits and with good reason! McGillivray was on fire across the WR 450F track today, clocking in a total time of 2:06:14.216 to claim first place in J3 for Round 10, whilst also claiming an undeniable class victory for 2019!

McGillivray left his rivals well in his wake, with second place claimed by Kodi Stephens (True Painting & Decorating) five minutes later, who clocked in a total time of 2:11:15.545. Third place was scored by Charlie Moller (Torquepower Husqvarna Ballarat) with a total time of 2:12:27.443.

‰ÛÏIt was pretty tough to get into a flow at the beginning, and Kodi got ahead of me,‰Û
