In the battle of the sprints at Round 9 of the Yamaha Australian Off-Road Championship (AORC) at Kingston SE, South Australia it would be Daniel Milner (E3), Daniel Sanders (E2), Fraser Higlett (E1) and Michael Driscoll taking the victories on Day 2.
After battling it out on the YZF450 test yesterday, the riders were shifted on to the Total Earthworx KTM test today. The conditions proved to be quite physical for the riders as the soft sand formed big ruts and the technical sectors which included logs proved to be quite a task for the riders.
The E3 class was once again the Milner show, despite putting his bike down in the first test, he composed himself and got back to his usual speed, taking the win with a time of 54:29.417.
Milner was made to earn the win here today with the tough conditions; ‰ÛÏMy first run today I pushed too hard into the corner and tucked the front end and lost a bit of time there. There was a log section that had us all struggling and I was definitely struggling with it but once I sussed out a line I managed to overcome the logs. The track was awesome it was rough, technical, hard and something we haven‰Ûªt seen in AORC in a long time, credit to AORC for not taking it out and letting us battle through,‰Û
