I t was a fast-paced start to the 2018 Australian Off-Road Championship in Miva, near Gympie, Queensland last weekend with two days of enduro-sprint racing.

The Motul Pirelli Sherco Team faced excellent racing conditions with recent rains making the ground perfect for traction and visibility. A stacked field of riders made for intense racing across all classes and the Motul Pirellli Sherco Team riders were in the thick of it all weekend.

Andy Wilksch began the weekend with steady pace aboard his Sherco 300 SE-R. Wilksch ended round one on Saturday in third position, however, slipped back to fifth for round two on Sunday.
