Perfect Run For Sanders At Dungog
Daniel Sanders was dominant in the E3 category to take victory in class on both Saturday and Sunday
Husqvarna Enduro Racing Team delivered a brilliant four from four podiums at Dungog's third and fourth rounds of the 2019 Australian Off-Road Championship (AORC) in New South Wales between 6-7 April.

Riding the powerful Husqvarna FE 501, Daniel Sanders was dominant in the E3 category to take victory in class on both Saturday and Sunday.

Sanders' performance was made even more impressive as he managed to unofficially top the outright times today, showcasing he and the bike's strengths throughout the pair of Enduro format rounds this weekend.

"It was a really good weekend and I'm happy with my riding, for sure." Sanders said. "I've been training hard in the lead-up to this round and the Husqvarna FE 501 was strong in these conditions, so I've been able to adapt to that more since the first round and feel like we're definitely getting stronger all the time.

"Today was good to be quickest overall, so that was really positive for me and it's all coming together for us."

It was also a typically convincing outing for Husqvarna Enduro Racing Team teammate Fraser Higlett
It was also a typically convincing outing for Husqvarna Enduro Racing Team teammate Fraser Higlett, piloting the Husqvarna FE 250 to a pair of podium finishes in class for a significant boost of confidence.

Higlett was third on Saturday and improved to second today, also making the most of the Enduro format and shining in the stunning track conditions delivered across rounds three and four due to a share of rainfall in the lead-up.

"I'm really happy with my results this weekend, especially after how I went at the first two rounds. It was good to be back up on the podium both days at Dungog and it's a confidence booster for me entering the rest of the season.

"There's something about the Enduro formats that work for me and the weekend's track conditions were some of the best you'll get, so it was an awesome couple of rounds."

The 2019 Australian Off-Road Championship (AORC) continues in Kyogle, New South Wales, for rounds five and six on 20-21 July.
