ShopYamaha pairing Kyron Bacon and Josh Green have maintained control of E1 and E2 following day two of the Prestige Truck Centre Australian Four Day Enduro (A4DE), as Andrew Wilksch (Simford Racing Husqvarna) moved to the top in E3.

Heavy rainfall made the conditions challenging at Erica, with Bacon extending his E1 advantage to 2m44s over Korey McMahon (GasGas), as Cooper Sheidow (KTM) sits third another nine seconds adrift, the duo rising to the top three overall in the category after podium results on day two.

Green took further control in E2, as the leading trio from day one which included Todd Waters (Husqvarna) in second and Fraser Higlett (Beta) third, repeating their placings on the second day. As a result, Green now leads the category by 1m22s ahead of Waters, with Higlett a further 18 seconds behind.

Recovering from a penalty on the opening day of competition that saw him regulated from the E3 lead, Wilksch stormed to the front of the class as he delivered a commanding day two.
