KTM Enduro Racing Team’s Lyndon Snodgrass is satisfied to earn a podium result at the weekend’s Penrite Hattah Desert Race in Victoria after being forced to recover from a number of incidents.

Snodgrass, who wound up third overall outright and second in the Over 450cc Four-Stroke division, says this year’s edition of Hattah was challenging in different aspects, which made the podium even sweeter.

“It was good to get back up on the podium again this year after what was a pretty tough race in the dusty conditions,” Snodgrass expressed. “It’s always positive to put the KTM 500 EXC-F on the outright podium, especially after that crash early on.

“That was on the first lap and I did have a few others along the way, which made it a little bit harder for myself, so that felt even better to bring it home in third. I tried hard the whole way, kept pushing as this year was a challenging one and I definitely had to work for it. I really appreciate all the effort put in by the KTM Enduro Racing Team!”

Snodgrass will now switch his attention towards rounds five and six of the Australian Off-Road Championship (AORC), scheduled to take place at Dungog in New South Wales, between 28-29 July.
