A tough 16km Supersprint faced the riders at Round 3 of the Yamaha Australian Off-Road Championship (AORC) at Hedley, Vic, and didn‰Ûªt Daniel Sanders love the tough and dry conditions.
Sanders was the fastest rider on the track on his way to clinching the E2 class win. Daniel Milner continues to make the jump to E3 with ease, taking the win, whilst Luke Styke continues to impress in his first enduro season picking up the E1 win. Reigning EJ Champion Michael Driscoll was back to his best and rightfully claimed the EJ honours.
Hedley produced rough and tough racing for our competitors and the ever-smooth Milner even found the conditions hard, but he showed his class to pull together and take the win. Milner put his KTM down on a few occasions throughout the three sprints, managing to compose himself and finish three minutes and thirty seconds clear of Lachlan Stanford. Stanford was a clear second on the day and was consistently behind Milner, but the Husqvarna rider just couldn‰Ûªt reel him in. Andrew Wilksch finished the day with an impressive third Supersprint that saw him jump onto the podium, finishing with a time of 1:02:44.464.
Milner was happy to get the win but knows he has lots of improvement in him before tomorrow racing, ‰ÛÏToday was a big struggle for me, I made a lot of mistakes and that cost me a lot of time throughout the day and in the end, cost me catching chucky. I spent too much time making stupid mistakes but its one of those days that you put behind you and try to focus on the positives and look forward to tomorrow,‰Û
