Recently-crowned E3 champion Daniel Sanders has earned top outright honours in the 2019 Yamaha Australian Off-Road Championship (AORC) after topping the overall classification in Sunday’s season-finale at Hedley in Victoria.

The outright standings are unofficially scored, however the Husqvarna Enduro Racing Team rider’s seven outright wins and four runner-ups across the 11-round series placed him ahead of KTM Enduro Racing Team’s Daniel Milner.

“It was an awesome season,” Sanders commented. “Not only for me, but everyone in the Husqvarna Enduro Racing Team as well.

We pushed really hard and got the FE 501 working really well this season, so it’s good to get it done here in Victoria and to deliver for everybody at Husqvarna Motorcycles. My family and friends were here this weekend as well, so it’s a great reward to get it all wrapped up.”

The Victorian will now prepare to represent Australia at the 2019 International Six Days Enduro (ISDE) at Portimao in Portugal between 11-16 November.
