Kyle Middleton has once again re-written the history books by becoming the first rider to win six straight Australian Solo Championships, after he crushed his rivals at the 2018 Delecca's Australian Trial Championship at Sedgwick in Victoria.

After scoring 14-points on Saturday, the New South Welshman went on to score 25-points on Sunday, which saw him finishing on top of the points tally with just 39-points to his name.

Dominating the competition over the weekend, the 28-year-old proved that he is in fact still human, suffering from fatigue on Sunday thanks to his display of unmatched skill and perseverance on Saturday. ‰ÛÏThe body simply didn‰Ûªt feel right today,‰Û

66-points off Middleton in second place was young gun, Connor Hogan, who continues to impress, proving that he is a future star of the sport.

It was a bit of an up-and-down weekend for the 18-year-old, who hails from Bangor, in South Australia.

Hogan enjoyed some good laps throughout the weekend which ensured he landed second place.‰ÛÏI managed to pull it together in the end, so I‰Ûªm happy to walk away with second overall,‰Û

Overall however, Hogan walked away from the Australian Trail Championship more than content, as he didn‰Ûªt have much expectations. Hogan, who finished fifth overall in last year‰Ûªs Solo Championship just wanted to improve from last year, which he certainly did.

The next challenge for Hogan is to try and win the championship, but he's not getting too ahead of himself just yet.

‰ÛÏIt would be nice to be able to battle for the championship next year. In saying that, Kyle is an amazing rider, so it will be hard to knock him off his perch anytime soon. To be able to beat Kyle and take the championship would be ideal. I‰Ûªll keep working and hopefully one day it might happen,‰Û

Tasmania‰Ûªs Chris Bayles finished fourth overall with 131-points in the bank.

Bayles, who was more than happy with his riding over the course of the weekend, unfortunately had a couple of unlucky situations throughout both days with his chain coming off twice in the first section and on the same rock.

‰ÛÏIt‰Ûªs a bit disappointing, but I‰Ûªm really happy with how I rode this weekend,‰Û

Kristie McKinnon kept her fine form going into the second day of racing by racking up a total of just 6-points for the day, which saw finishing with a grand total of 14-points and her ninth Australian Championship in the Women‰Ûªs category!

McKinnon noted that the sections on Sunday were tougher than Saturday, which suited her even more.

‰ÛÏI really enjoyed the sections out there today, as there were some nice steps to play on. It was simply a magic day,‰Û
