Wilson Makes the Perfect Start to Her Title Defence

Author: Media/Monday, March 12, 2018/Categories: State News

Returning Women’s Champion Jemma Wilson has sent a strong message to her competition in the Women’s class after taking out Sunday’s sprint to back up Saturdays win in the opening weekend of the Yamaha Australian Off-Road Championship (AORC).

In a quest for three titles in a row, Wilson couldn’t have gotten off to a better start in the pursuit finishing Sunday with a time of 1:07:27.921. Wilson had stiff competition yesterday from Emelie Karlsson who finished in second, just 24 seconds behind Wilson with her 1:07:51.129. Jessica Gardiner of the Yamaha MX Store Ballard’s Off-Road Team enjoyed a solid weekend’s riding in her return to the Australian scene, finishing in third position 1:08:12.758, after a second place on Saturday.

Fellow Queenslanders Tamara Gray and Ebony Nielsen were 6th and 7th respectively on both days.

The AORC now moves onto rounds 3 &4 at Hedley Victoria on May 5-6, to keep updated with all things AORC head to aorc.org.au, or follow AORC on Instagram and Facebook.
