Husqvarna Enduro Racing Team’s Daniel Sanders and KTM Enduro Racing Team duo Daniel Milner and Lyndon Snodgrass stormed to victories in their respective classes at Broken Hill’s seventh round of the 2019 Yamaha Australian Off-Road Championship (AORC).

Sanders topped the unofficial outright times in brutally dusty conditions, while he was joined in the top three by fellow class winners Milner and Snodgrass.

In the E3 category, Sanders couldn’t be stopped as he stretched out a convincing lead to take victory over Andy Wilksch (Motul Pirelli Sherco Team) and Alexander Bolton (Bolton Motorcycles), as Beau Ralston (Schwarz Excavation Husqvarna JWP) and
Jesse Lawton (Husqvarna) locked out the top five.

The E2 division saw Milner charge to victory ahead of Joshua Green (Active8 Yamaha Yamalube Racing), the duo finishing comfortably ahead Jeremy Carpentier (Yamaha MXstore Ballards Off-Road Team), Stefan Granquist (Yamaha) and William Price (KTM).

Snodgrass emerged victorious in the highly-competitive E1 class, edging out points leader Luke Styke (Active8 Yamaha Yamalube Racing) for the top spot. Fraser Higlett (Husqvarna Enduro Racing Team) was third followed by Michael Driscoll (Active8 Yamaha Yamalube Racing) and Lachlan Allan (Kawasaki Castrol Oil Off-Road Team).

Emma Milesevic (Honda) and Josh Brierley (Husqvarna) captured wins in the Women’s and EJ classes respectively. The AORC now heads to Coonalpyn in South Australia on 31 August-1 September.
