KTM Enduro Racing Team rider Toby Price will shoot for a record fourth career AORC title when the Australian Off-Road Championship concludes this weekend at Heathcote in Central Victoria.
Riding a KTM 450 EXC, Price‰Ûªs 2014 campaign has combined blinding speed with a good deal of good old-fashioned guts, as the Maitland rider won five of the 10 rounds thus far and carried a painful remnant injury through another two to pick up valuable points.
He‰Ûªll now take a 28-point lead into the double-header final, with Husqvarna's Glenn Kearney the nearest challenger.
‰ÛÏI‰Ûªm definitely keen to put this one to bed." Price admitted. "We always go out to win races and do the best we can, but at the end of the day I‰Ûªve always got to look at the bigger picture and make sure we get the job done for KTM.
"It's important for me to get this one, with everything we‰Ûªve done on how busy we've been this year, we've done really well in the desert, so it would be really nice to get an Australian Off-Road Championship to go with it. Since 2009 I think I‰Ûªve won three, lost one, didn't compete in one, and hopefully will get to put another one on the board.‰Û
