Race report AORC rd 5 & 6 Hedley VIC may 3-4 2014

Thursday 1st May 3.30 am we head of on the 1550km journey to Hedley VIC 16 hours later we arrive to a very cold & windy place, bed is on everybody’s mind.

Friday 2nd May an early start out to the pit area to set up the Coffs KTM quick shade & service area, 2pm & its of to scrutineering for the Coffs KTM 250 sx & no surprise all the boxes are ticked. We then began a walk through of the 19km enduro course & it became quickly apparent that the sandy conditions would be challenging. Back to the cabin for some dinner then of to bed.
Rd 5 AORC Hedley VIC ( enduro 3 hour )

Saturday 3rd May we arrived @ the start for riders briefing 9.45 then a dead engine start @ 10.30 am, Brad had a good start & launched into the first of many laps over the next 3 hours, after 4 consistent laps it was time for the 54 bike & brad to pit, 6.5ltrs of fuel was added, air filter changed, suspension adjustments made for the deteriorating course & Brad had a bit to eat before heading back out on lap 5, we began to do the figures & thought that Brad would only get in 7 laps before the 3 hour cut off But Brad had decided after the suspension adjustments that he would turn it up alittle ! we then had to call Brad back in after lap 7 for a quick splash & dash of fuel to ensure that he could make the finish & score valuable points towards the championship, Brad finished 13th in class 49th out right & there were 150 starters a great result considering just 2.5 hours had been spent on the Kato before we left Coffs.

Rd 6 AORC Headly VIC ( sprints )

Sunday 4th beckoned a early start with riders briefing @ 7.30am them straight out onto the sighting lap. 8.30am Brad & the Coffs KTM 54 bike headed of for the first of 6 laps of the course, with regular air filter changes & some minor suspension tweeks the round had come to a end with Brad achieving 9th in class 33rd out right from nearly 200 started, again consistent lap times were the key to achieving some great points towards the championship. 2.30pm we are all packed up & on the road for another 16 hours back to the best place in Australia Coffs Harbour.
