After securing the lead on Thursday’s second day, Frenchman Mathias Bellino (Husqvarna Enduro Racing Team) has claimed the 2016 Yamaha Australian Four-Day Enduro title in Victoria following today’s final day of the event.

Bellino captured the win by a slender 12 seconds over CDR Yamaha’s Chris Hollis after finishing the day in second behind the former champion, which also credited him the E2 class win.

Hollis, who took part in his last professional race after announcing his retirement yesterday, soared to second overall in the standings after a stellar performance saw him claim the top honours in today’s final tests.

Fellow CDR Yamaha rider and defending A4DE champion Daniel Milner was bumped back the third in standings after a challenging day forced him to salvage ninth.

Active8 Yamaha’s Josh Green maintained his position in fourth overall, while KTM Enduro Racing Team’s Daniel Sanders finished a minute behind in fifth. Green’s result was enough to award him the E1 title, while Sander’s captured victory in the E3 class.

Today’s final day also saw KTM’s Jack Simpson finish in an impressive third, while Husqvarna Enduro Racing Team’s Glenn Kearney made an appearance in the top five – his best result of the week.

Yamaha’s Tayla Jones continued her dominance in the Women’s category to add another title to her collection, she was followed by Jemma Wilson (Yamaha) and Jessica Gardener (Yamaha).
