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.
AORC now moves onto rounds 3 &4 at Hedley Victoria on May 5-6, to keep
