Yamaha‰Ûªs factory supported teams are locked, loaded and headed for Bulahdelah, NSW, for the opening round of the 2014 Yamaha Australian Off Road Championship this weekend.
Yamaha not only have the naming rights of the high profile national off road championship but will have a huge presence on the trail with a host of riders and teams competing under the blue banner.
CDR Yamaha off road will head the Yamaha charge featuring the 1-2 punch of Chris Hollis and reigning 2013 AORC champ, Daniel Milner. Milner steps up from the E1 class (under 250cc) up to the premier E2 (450cc bikes) category after a hugely successful 2013 season.
Testing has gone extremely well for Milner and he is no stranger to the bigger capacity bike having shocked the world at the ISDE last year with a stunning second place finish on the YZ450F.
Hollis enters the AORC full of confidence after winning the season opening Australian Enduro-X championships recently. Since his early season success, Hollis has gelled well with his new team and has spent plenty of time refining the WR450F to his tastes.
Hollis will also compete in the E2 class and will go head to head with his team mate, and good friend, for Outright honours at each and every round.
