Yamaha AORC Junior Coaching Days with enduro pros to return in 2018

Motorcycling Australia press release:

Yamaha AORC is excited to again run three Junior Coaching days in three Australian states in preparation for the eagerly anticipated 2018 season.

Victoria, New South Wales and Queensland will each host a AORC Junior Coaching day; where young, aspiring Off-Road riders will be coached by Australia’s top and most renowned Enduro riders!

These pro-riders and coaches will teach the AORC Juniors proper riding technique, provide information on the art of the racing line, race preparation, and all other aspects of competition including nutrition and fitness, bike set up, and of course, how to be champions just like the coaches!

The first Junior Coaching day will kick off in Victoria on Saturday 3rd February 2018 in the Yarra Valley, Victoria.

Not only will the seasoned AORC rider and 2017 E2 Australian Off-Road Champion, KTM Enduro Racing Team’s Daniel Milner, be there to greet the hopefuls, but so will his teammate Lyndon Snodgrass.

Former EnduroGP rider and now Huqvarna Enduro Racing team’s Daniel ‘Chucky’ Sanders also joins the boys alongside Peter Boyle who will be sharing their knowledge of bike control and in depth detail of all things Off-Road!

A Junior Coaching day for New South Wales will be conducted on Saturday 17th February 2017 at Stroud, NSW.

Back on the bike and in fighting form, New South Welshman Active8 Yamaha Yamalube’s, Josh ‘Greeny’ Green, as well as being a great ambassador for the sport, has plenty of skill, knowledge, patience and experience to pass on to the Off-Road stars of tomorrow. Greeny will be joined in coaching the Juniors by teammate and 2017 AORC E1 Champion Wil Ruprecht. Multiple World Champion Jess Gardiner completes the coaching line up in New South Wales.
