Queensland’s best Enduro riders headed to the rural town of Murray Bridge in South Australia over the weekend (April 23 and 24) for rounds five and six of the Yamaha AORC.
Queenslanders continued to show that they’re made of the tough stuff, with wins by Lachlan Stanford and Jemma Wilson, and podium positions clinched by Tom McCormack and Fraser Higlett over the weekend.
In the E3 Class, Husqvarna Enduro Racing Team’s Lachlan Stanford was again victorious, claiming wins on both the Saturday and Sunday. This means that Stanford is now second in the E3 class, and second outright over the E1, E2, E3, and EJ classes.
Jemma Wilson continued her strong performance, coming out of the South Australian rounds with another great win.
Jemma says that on Saturday, she pulled over 50 seconds from fellow competitor Jess Gardiner, and went into Sunday’s racing ‘too confident’.
“Sunday saw some crazy close racing, only beating Jess by minute seconds in some of the tests, but I ended up getting the win only four seconds ahead,” she says.
“The close racing makes it more stressful, of course, but more interesting and it pushed us both along today.”
Jemma is currently sitting in top spot in the Women’s Class.
In the E2 Class, Tom McCormack clinched a third place podium position on Sunday, and Fraser Higlett took a third in the Transmoto 19 and Under Class on both Saturday and Sunday. Fraser sits third overall in this class, behind Nic Tomlinson and Wil Ruprecht.
