Price Claims Second Outright Win Of 2014 At Round 5 Of AORC

Posted:

The Yamaha Australian Off-Road Championship (AORC) introduced the Cross Country format for the first time this year in Round 5 at Corner Inlet.

The racers experienced true endurance riding in the notoriously gruelling Hedley course and provided exciting viewing on a day with uncharacteristic sunshine.

With the absence of championship leader, CDR Yamaha's Daniel Milner, Toby Price (Motorex KTM) took the opportunity to claim his second outright and E2 win of the season.

Price, 26, guided his KTM 450 EXC to win comfortably from Active8 Yamalube Yamaha's young gun, Josh Green by 15.255 seconds.

Green, who won round five at Corner Inlet last year, admitted that today was tough as he had a bad start after miss-kicking the start.

Fourth place went to CDR-Yamaha rider Chris Hollis and rounding out the top five was Green‰Ûªs Active8 teammate Stefan Granqvist.

Victorian Daniel ‰Û÷Chucky‰Ûª Sanders (KTM) had arguably one of the best rides of the day and finished sixth overall and first in the Transmoto 19 & Under class with a total time of three hours 12 minutes and 47.940 seconds.

Sanders was happy enough with the result, but after having to pit twice for fuel he felt that did cost him track position.

21-year old Jess Gardiner (Balllards Motorex Off Road Team Sherco) was in a class of her own in the Women‰Ûªs championship. Gardiner didn‰Ûªt get the best of starts, she was third in the first few corners.

‰ÛÏIt was really good fun out there today‰Û
