Nothing is going to slow down Gardiner, Stephens, Hutton and Teed As They Take Home Gold
Round 1 efforts of all the 2019 returning Yamaha Australian Off-Road Championship presented by MXstore (AORC) victors in the Women‰Ûªs, Masters and Veterans, who all came, saw and conquered the Ballards-MXstore test track.

Jessica Gardiner (Yamaha MXStore Ballards Off-Road Team), Lee Stephens (True Painting and Decorating, KTM Newcastle) and Kirk Hutton (Yamaha Motors Australia) all took out first place, attaining a firm grasp on their continued success from 2019 into 2020. This AORC season also includes the first full season 2 Stroke Cup class, which saw Harry Teed take out the top spot.

Women‰Ûªs
She breaks records and doesn‰Ûªt settle. That‰Ûªs Gardiner, who appears to have worked straight through the AORC break to build herself up to be even better.
