Kyogle Confirmed for QORC Rounds

Kyogle Confirmed for QORC Rounds

Author: Media/Wednesday, May 22, 2019/Categories: State News

Confirmation is through that the Kyogle round of the Australian Off-Road Championship will also serve as round three and four of the Queensland Off-Road Championship.

It might be about 25 kilometres on the wrong side of the border, but that has never stopped us claiming Kyogle creation Dean Ferris as a Queenslander, and besides, the northern rivers town has some of the sweetest riding around.

It's also a favourite with many Queensland enduro riders, including Husqvarna Factory Rider Fraser Higlett.

"It's an awesome area for an enduro," said Higlett. I've been there a couple of times and the black soil forms up good and 'ruts up' to a motocrossy feel.

"It's super green and hilly and there's creeks and a lotta grass track, so there's a bit of everything, depending on what part of the property they use.

"Last time we were there we had a test in a plantation which was cool, as well as a grass track test. The track is always set up perfectly and double-bunted, so everything always flows well.

"And someone who makes the track really knows what they're doing," continued Higlett, "because they're always good."

Rounds 1 and 2 of the Queensland Off Road Championship took place at Murphy's Creek in March, while round 3 and 4 will take place on July 20 and 21.
