The Yamaha Australian Off-Road Championship (AORC) swings back into action again for rounds eight and nine on 31 August and 1 September.

The destination, Coonalpyn in South Australia, located about 143 kilometres south-east of the state capital of Adelaide.

Over 220 gladiators of the dirt will do battle this weekend with a double sprint format inplace for the South Australian round. It will be a case of hold it on and give your all for a lap as riders race against the clock across every type of terrain you can think of, from sand, through to some Mallee scrub, to some hard-packed clay.

Daniel Sanders is simply on a roll right now in the E3 class and is hard to look past anyone beating him as marches towards this year‰Ûªs championship crown.

With seven wins on the trot in 2019, can he make he make eight or possibly nine? You would brave to bet against him.

Beau Ralston, trails the Victorian rider by 27-points in the championship. While the championship is still within Ralston‰Ûªs grasp, its almost getting to the point where its going to be impossible for him to throw any sort of challenge to Sanders in terms of winning the championship.

What a fight we have on our hands for third place. Andrew Wilksch, who finished second to Sanders last time, and Jesse Lawton head into this weekend locked on 124-points apiece, while Matt Murry in ten points behind the pair.

What does Daniel Milner and Sanders have in common? The current E2 champion has replicated what Sanders has done in the E3 class. That is that he has taken out all the rounds thus far in 2019 and looks like he will continue his winning ways this weekend.

While Milner is on track to win the championship, he is only 21-points ahead of Active8 Yamaha Yamalube‰Ûªs Josh Green, who has been the second-best rider to Milner this year and is yet to win a round in 2019. In fact the last time Green round a round in the E2 class was back at fourth round of AORC in the 2016 season.

Making up the top five in the championship is J̩r̩my Carpentier ) in third, Brad Hardaker, holds down fourth with Harrison Teed in fifth place.

Active8 Yamaha Yamalube‰Ûªs Luke Styke goes into this weekend with just a ten-point buffer over Lyndon Snodgrass in the small bore E1 class.

Fraser Higlett and Michael Driscoll sit in third and fourth place in the championship only 19 and 24 points behind the championship leader.
Yamaha MXstore Ballards Offroad Team‰Ûªs Jess Gardiner proved at the last round that she was human after all, when she was finally denied victory for the first time since the final round of the AORC championship in 2018 in the Women's class.

Who beat her? Emma Milesevic, an imported motocross rider, that‰Ûªs who.

Question is, now that Milesevic has the monkey off her back, can she keep her form going and win more races? Speaking about keeping form going, Gardiner will no doubt finish in the top three this weekend, baring any bad luck.

In fact, the 26-year-old is just 27-points shy from scoring 2000 championship points in her AORC career, which has never been done in the Women‰Ûªs category.

Gardiner will still have to be on her game, not saying that she isn‰Ûªt, but she now only has a 27-point championship lead, over Milesevic, who is just one slender point ahead of Emelie Karlsson

Making up the top five is Danielle Foot and Ebony Nielsen.
