CDR Yamaha Off Road’s Daniel Milner made a triumphant return to racing after breaking his ankle six weeks ago by dominating proceedings at rounds seven and eight of the Australian Off Road Championships (AORC) held at Coonawarra, SA, over the weekend.
Milner broke his ankle in a training incident and was forced to miss the previous two rounds but with a focused recovery program, he was able to get his medical clearance and get back on the bike in the week leading up to the Coonawarra event.
Chris Hollis also logged a good weekend with consistent results over both days. Hollis took sixth outright on Saturday and fifth on Sunday on his WR450F.
After eight rounds, Hollis holds down fifth Outright and third in the E1 class.
Hoping to just get through the event unscathed, Milner did far more than that and cleaned up both rounds to record impressive wins and announce his return on the off road scene.
Active8 Yamaha’s Tom McCormack and Josh Green turned in impressive performances at rounds seven and eight of the Australian Off Road championship (AORC) held at Coonawarra, South Australia, over the weekend.
McCormack impressed with his best weekend of the season taking the E1 (250Cc) class double, winning on both days and extending his lead in the E1 championship. McCormack excelled in the conditions and posted good results outright, claiming ninth and sixth respectively on his YZ250F.
“The weekend went well for me and I was able to win on both days. The sandy conditions are similar to what I ride in at Byron Bay so I felt right at home and enjoyed the weekend. The bike was awesome all weekend and it was a good weekend for the team all round,” McCormack said.
Josh Green also flew the Active8 Yamaha flag with pride taking fourth outright on both days on his YZ450F. Green battled hard all weekend and consolidated his place in the top three of the championship after right rounds and is within striking distance of the outright championship lead.
