Chris Hollis had a consistent weekend at Corner Inlet AORC

Hollis Holds Tough at AORC

6 May 2014

CDR Yamaha’s Chris Hollis posted a consistent weekend’s racing at rounds five and six of the Australian Off Road Championship held at Corner Inlet, Victoria.

The three hour ‘Cross Country’ format on Saturday saw Hollis get off to a slow start and along way back in the pack. He put his head down and continued to charge his way forward and cross the finish line in a hard fought but well-earned fourth place.

Sunday saw the competitors return for round six and the sandy conditions caused issues for Hollis early in the day. Several small crashes in the early sprints held him back but by the afternoon sessions, Hollis was back on song and put together some fast times to limit the damage and return a fifth place finish.

“It was a bit of a struggle all weekend for me,” Hollis shrugs. “I felt I rode alright on Saturday but with so many riders in front of me at the start, it was hard to make up all the time. I did as well as I could and was satisfied with the result.

“On Sunday I just took too long to find my flow. It wasn’t until I relaxed and found some rhythm that I was able to put together some good times and I was the fastest in the last sprint of the day.

“It’s half way and with six rounds to go I need make sure I finish the second half of the year strongly. The CDR Yamaha team has been great and I’m sure we can continue to improve,” Hollis ends.

Daniel Milner is set to return for the next round and the CDR Yamaha Off Road team will be back to full strength.

Rounds seven and eight of the AORC take place in South Australia in June. For more information om the AORC, www.ma.org.au
