Scott Keegan has put Kawasaki back on the podium for round 3 and 4 was here in Dungog, New South Wales. Under a glittering sky and rolling atop pristine conditions, riders rode three laps each of the Cross Test and Off-Road Advantage Enduro Test.
With arguably the strongest competitive field in the Championship, Round 4 served another day of tumultuous racing with Kawasaki rider Lachlan finishing 6th on both days. These two day Enduro racing events challenge the mind and body with 11 hours of riding but in his own words, it was a blast!
My goal is to podium and one day represent Australia at the 2019 FIM International Six Days Enduro.
“Now that we have a break until the 21st of July, I have some time to work on my speed and my fitness so we can come into Round 5 & 6 and build on better results .”

“Saturday and Sunday were good days for Matt Murry ! I came out of Saturday and Sunday feeling positive, so I wanted to push myself to see how for up the order I could get and I'm stoked with 4th place on both days. I have always raced 2 stoke so to switch to 4 stroke this year with Kawasaki team was going to have its challenges, so it thought. I took the bike straight away and the 4th places are my best AORC results so far, so I'm super happy and the bikes handling is unreal."
“The Enduro tests were great. I just had to keep hitting my lines and staying smooth, I was really happy with how I went. There were a lot of positives over the weekend , but I still have to keep working hard before Kyogle. It was an awesome weekend at Dungog and was one of the AORC events I have done."
