Flat, tight and technical grass track made up the majority of the courses at the Murray Bridge circuit in South Australia, with many obstacles thrown in to challenge the riders.
Reigning J2 class champion, Mitch Brierley entered rounds 5 and 6 with a second place result in each of the first four rounds. Persistency and determination in his first year of J3 class competition paid dividends with his first round win on day one (round 5), backed up by another win on day two (round 6).
Mitch’s father, Mal Brierley said, “Mitch now finds himself within 4 points of the series leader in the J3 class and is determined to fight for another Aussie championship in the last few rounds this year!”
Twin brother, Josh Brierley was rearing to compete aboard his Bikebiz KX250F after having his cast removed from his left wrist only 4 days prior. Unfortunately, with his arm still weak and tender from a crash in the first round of the 2016 AORC, Josh decided to only ride in the tests each day over the weekend, in an effort to recoup strength.
“While we now have a break for three moths till the next AORC rounds, the boys will be training hard for the Hattah Desert race in the first week of July where they hope to both get on the podium. They also have a state off road round in Dungog, NSW which will be two rounds of EnduroX,” Mal commented.
