Husqvarna Enduro Racing Team’s Mathias Bellino continues to lead the outright standings following today’s penultimate day of the 2016 Yamaha Australian Four-Day Enduro (A4DE).

Frenchman Bellino was only able to finish the day in third, although after building a strong lead yesterday, he still maintains a six-second advantage over CDR Yamaha’s Daniel Milner.

Defending A4DE champion Milner fought his way to the top on day three, edging out teammate Chris Hollis while making up valuable ground on Bellino in the overall results.

After completing the day in second, Hollis was able to regain his top three position in the outright standings and sits 14 seconds off Milner.

Active8 Yamaha’s Josh Green slipped back to fourth overall after finishing today’s seven-test day in fifth, he now trails the top three by over 20 seconds.

Lachlan Stanford (Husqvarna) continues to hold onto fifth in the standings, however after concluding today’s third day in sixth, the overall times between himself, Daniel Sanders (KTM Enduro Racing Team) and Matt Phillips (Motul Pirelli Sherco Racing Team) have tightened up with just seven seconds separating the trio.

Tayla Jones (Yamaha) has stamped her authority in the Women’s category, leading for the third-consecutive day. Jessica Gardener (Yamaha) was able to overcome Jemma Wilson (Yamaha) after falling short in the previous days, however Wilson still has a firm grasp on second overall heading into tomorrow’s final day.
