Yamaha riders dominated the Women’s division at the opening two rounds of the AORC last weekend at Dungog, NSW, holding down the top four spots.
Jemma Wilson currently holds the lead on her Yamaha YZ250F after two rounds of competition, narrowly over Yamaha stable mate Jessica Gardiner. Both are previous AORC winners and have resumed their rivalry for 2012. The pair were separated by little more than one second on day two and had a great battle in tough and trying conditions.
Wilson built a small gap during Saturday’s racing but Gardiner bounced back strongly on Sunday to take it right up to Gardiner.
Wilson is totally aware she must be on her A game every weekend to stay ahead of Gardiner.
"I am really happy to have come away from the opening rounds with two first places. Going into the start of the season you never know where your pace is going to be at, so to win both days is such a great start to 2012."
"I worked hard over the off season and am loving the 2012 YZF250. I am just really looking forward to this years racing," Wilson offers.
The pair sits ahead of Tanya Hearn in third, with Emeile Karlsson in fourth. Karlsson struck problems on during the event, drowning her bike and taking over 20minutes to dewater her YZ250F and get it up and running again.
Rounds three and four will take place later this month at the end of the month in Wonthaggi, Victoria.
