Strong start for Sherco at Australian Off-Road Championship

Posted:

Rounds one and two of the 2017 Yamaha Australian Off-Road Championship provided the DSR Motul Pirelli Sherco Team with very solid and satisfying results at Rawson, Vic, over the weekend.

Leading by example and showing a clean set of heels all weekend was Team captain Derek Grundy who dominated the Over 45 Class on his Sherco 300 SEF-R.

Grundy was never troubled as he laid waste to the competition, winning Saturday‰Ûªs cross country event by a huge 6-minute margin. Grundy went on to smash the Enduro Sprint event on Sunday to take the double round win.

Andy Wilksch continued his rise up the Pro Class ranks by racing to his best-ever race results with 5th place in the super-hot and highly-competitive E2 Class on both days.

‰ÛÏThis was a solid way to start off a busy year,‰Û
Nic Tomlinson was third on Saturday and Sunday
Nic Tomlinson showed he will be a serious contender for the EJ Class for riders under-19 with third place on Saturday and Sunday on his Sherco 450 SEF-R. Tomlinson finished just 1-minute and 17-seconds behind the class winner on Saturday which was frustratingly close considering Tomlinson spent time in the pits after the first lap to rectify an error in judgment.

‰ÛÏNic let the class win slip through his fingers on Saturday,‰Û

Rounding out the DSR Motul Pirelli Team effort for rounds one and two of the AORC was the consistent performance of Kate Norman with 6th and 7th places over the two days in the Woman‰Ûªs Class.

‰ÛÏI had a lot of fun racing my 300 SEF-R,‰Û
