Active8 Yamalube Yamaha’s Josh Green says this weekend’s fifth and sixth rounds of the Yamaha Australian Off-Road Championship (AORC) at Dungog in New South Wales serve up a familiar terrain to his regular training grounds.

Green, who’s coming off a stellar performance at the recent Penrite Hattah Desert Race, is anticipating to see a mix of high-speed and technical sections, which comes as a delight to the number 99.

“I am looking forward to getting out there at Dungog,” said Green. “The track there is very similar to what I have at my house. The Dungog club always puts on a good event and they have some of the best tracks, I know a lot of the guys can’t wait to see what the weekend will hold.

“At Dungog we will see both a high-speed grass track and then a technical track as well, which I really like as we get tested in different areas. Of course, I would like to be leading my class at this point but Chucky [Daniel Sanders] has been riding exceptionally but I think I’m still in a good position and ready to push for the rest of the season and see what can happen.”

The New South Welshman holds down second in the E2 championship standings, 16 points shy of series leader Daniel Sanders (Husqvarna Enduro Racing Team).
