Price Extends Lead In AORC Standings

Off Road - Coonawarra, South Australia

KTM Enduro Racing Team rider Toby Price has extended his lead at the head of the Australian Off-Road Championship after the series’ South Australian stop at the weekend.

Despite having never seen the venue before, Price finished second on both days, using his KTM 450 EXC to fight two dogged battles with defending champion Daniel Milner, the result coming down to the final lap on both occasions.

Price will now take an 11-point lead into the last four rounds of the series ahead of Glenn Kearney, with Josh Green a further two points back, and Milner 30 points behind Price in fourth overall.

Toby Price – KTM 450 EXC
“We clipped a tree in that last lap today – I’ve got to keep remembering to go around those trees! But it’s okay, we got through the weekend without doing anything too silly so it’s all good. It’s important to make sure we stay consistent now and do what we can. The pace has picked up a lot and I went there without any setup data because I missed the race there last year, so I spent some of Saturday chasing settings. It was a good race for the win and it’s good for enduro racing to have a close contest like that between Yamaha and KTM. Daniel and I get on well so it’s all good fun. Now I’ve got to focus on the tri-series round this weekend.”
