With picture-perfect weather the 2019 Huon Aquaculture Australian Trial Championships was held on the unique rocky terrain of Mt Joy, Tasmania, on October 13 providing a great mix of obstacles to test the riders in their respective classes.

Twenty-nine-year-old NSW rider, Kyle Middleton once again re-wrote the history books by becoming the first rider to win seven straight Australian Solo Trial Championships, with near perfect scores. After scoring a phenomenally perfect score of zero points on Saturday, the New South Welshman went on to score only 5-points on Sunday, which saw him once again winning the Australian Championships finishing with only 5-points to his name for the weekend.

Thirty-three points off Middleton in second place was Colin Zarczynski with a mere 38 points and Connor Hogan was only one point behind finishing the weekend with only 39 points. Tasmania‰Ûªs Chris Bayles finished fourth overall with 56-points and Timothy Coleman followed closely with 58 points.

When asked about the championship weekend Middleton enthused ‰ÛÏTo be honest, the weekend went so smoothly that I can‰Ûªt say there were any low lights and even highlights were hard to find because it was all so good‰Û

The Women‰Ûªs class was very low scoring with championship runner up Lillie Yiatrou on 18 points, Kaitlyn Cummins coming in a close third on 24 points, fourth was Sarah Chivers on 29 and Nicole Casey rounded up the top five with a mere 38 points for the weekend.

When asked about the highs, lows and challenges of this year‰Ûªs championship McKinnon commented ‰ÛÏIt‰Ûªs always a great achievement to win at the Australian Championships and this year was no exception. It was a highlight to be travelling to Tasmania for the Championships, I have ridden a few events down there at the same venue and there is always such a great relaxed atmosphere, the Tasmanian Trials community certainly know how to run events! For me the lowlight was getting sick before the event, I‰Ûªd returned from TdN in Ibiza only a week prior and picked something up on the plane on the way home that I couldn‰Ûªt seem to shake‰Û
