Title decider at AORC final round at Hedley this weekend

2019 AORC final rounds with E1, E2, Enduro Junior and Women’s titles to be decided this weekend in Hedley.


The 2019 Australian Off Road Championship hits its final rounds this weekend, September 14 - 15, in Hedley, Victoria. 

Over 220 riders will head to Hedley, Victoria, for the last two rounds of the 2019 Australian Off Road Championship with the E1, E2, Enduro Junior and Women’s titles going down to the wire with a cross-country style race on Saturday and a sprint enduro on Sunday.

Styke and Milner can’t relax in E1 and E2 title chases

Coming in hot after a double win at rounds eight and nine Yamaha rider Luke Styke looks as the favourite to clinch E1 title. 

He has a 16 points advantage over Lyndon Snodgrass but with the KTM rider having been on the chase for the whole season, Styke has no room to relax. 

Daniel Milner arrives in Hedley with a hand on the E2 Championship. Milner has a 100% record this season in the mid-engine size class, having won every round to date, but Josh Green is never far behind with an equal record for posting second places which explains why the E2 title goes down to this final round.

E3 championship decided but a tight fight for the runner-up position

Daniel Sanders locked up the 2019 championship at the previous round after having won every round and also the has been on a run of form taking the overall fastest times. 

But the fight for second place is coming in hot with just four points separating Andrew Wilksch in second and Jesse Lawton in third six points adrift. Wilksch has been performing better towards the end of the season but if he makes a mistake Lawton will be there and ready.

17-point lead for Kyron Bacon in Enduro Junior 

Kyron Bacon is on the hunt for his first senior championship title and with a 17-point margin over Joshua Brierly the odds are on his side in Hedley. 

Having stepped dropped from first place only twice this season, Bacon will be relying on his consistency and speed to get the title.

Jessica Gardiner set to make history in the Women’s class 

Jessica Gardiner holds a 25-point lead and baring disaster is set to take a record fifth Women’s AORC Championship. 

Nevertheless, she can’t commit any mistakes with the fast-improving Emma Milesevic been stealing wins during the recent AORC rounds and surely looking for more this weekend.
