The Australian Off-Road Championship (AORC) has experienced significant growth in recent years, seeing industry support strengthen and the pool of talent deepen.

Supporting this unprecedented growth, the Yamaha AORC is excited to be running three Junior Coaching days in three Australian States in preparation for the 2017 season.

Victoria, New South Wales and Queensland will each host a Yamaha AORC Junior Coaching day; where young, aspiring Off-Road riders will be coached by Australia’s top and most renowned Enduro riders!

These pro-coaches will teach the AORC Juniors proper riding technique, provide information on the art of the racing line, race preparation, and all other aspects of competition including nutrition and fitness, bike set up, and of course, how to be Champions just like them!

The first Junior Coaching day will kick off in Victoria on Saturday the 28th of January 2017 in the Yarra Valley.

Mixing the past and present, Queensland’s Coaching day will see past Enduro wiz and now Active8 Yamaha Yamalube’s Team Manager, ‘AJ’ Roberts, back in gear and on the bike.

Accompanying AJ will be 2016’s gun Husqvarna Enduro Racing Team’s Lachlan “Lachy” Stanford on Saturday the 11th of February 2017 at Toowoomba.

Back on the bike and in fighting form, New South Welshman Active8 Yamaha Yamalube’s, Josh ‘Greeny’ Green, as well as being a great ambassador for the sport, has plenty of skill, knowledge, patience and experience to pass on to the Off-Road stars of tomorrow.

Greeny will be joined in coaching the Juniors by long-time pro-Enduro rider (recently retired) Husqvarna Enduro Racing Team’s Glenn Kearney, also a champion advocate for the Enduro Racing sport.
