With the 2018 Yamaha Australian Off-Road Championship (AORC) just around the corner, AORC caught up with 2017 E3 champion Lyndon Snodgrass.
He talks about how his off-season has been going, his triumphant 2017 and what we can expect from him and the KTM Enduro Team this season.
Q. 2017 was a successful year for you taking out the E3 title, what do you attribute your success too?
Last year was a good year for myself, it was my first year on the KTM Enduro Racing Team and I learnt a lot with so many good people behind me. The bike was awesome which always helps, but the guidance of the team was something I really valued and taking out the E3 title was one of my proudest achievements.
Q. What was the highlight of your 2017 AORC Season, obviously aside from winning the E3 title?
The highlight for me was the final round of the season at Omeo, it was rather cold up there, but I just loved the track. It was my favourite track of the year by far; I just had so much fun at Omeo it was unreal.
Q. 2017 was first year on the KTM, what was the best thing about being on the KTM team?
I find we have a friendly and fun vibe around the team, but on top of that environment we work really hard and do a lot of testing, which gives me great confidence on race day. I really enjoy the fun environment, as it fits my personality perfectly.
