KTM Enduro Racing Team’s Lyndon Snodgrass says he’s starting to feel at home in the E1 category after coming off a commanding win at Broken Hill’s seventh round of the 2019 Yamaha Australian Off-Road Championship (AORC) last weekend.

The Victorian rode strongly all weekend, qualifying fourth outright before putting on a charge in Sunday’s cross-country, storming to third outright aboard the KTM 250 EXC-F while claiming top honours in the E1 division – his second class triumph of the season.

“Today was good and I knew what we had to do, so I managed to come through and grab the class win, as well as an overall podium,” Snodgrass recalled.

“We’re going forward on the KTM 250 EXC-F all the time, working hard to get as comfortable as I can and I’m really starting to feel at home in E1. Finishing up there outright this weekend in the desert really shows how strong the bike is on a really fast, sketchy track!”

Snodgrass is now positioned second in the championship standings – 10 points shy of leader Luke Styke (Active8 Yamaha Yamalube Racing) – as the AORC heads to Coonalpyn in South Australia on 31 August-1 September.
