Advertisment

The only thing that held off on Day Two was the rain, as a jampacked field tackled 187 kilometres for Day 2 of the 2022 Prestige Iveco Australian Four Day Enduro (A4DE). Notching up over seven hours on the bike, more than 230 riders navigated muddy, slippery conditions across the course.

Gardiner finished with a total time of 28:27.487. Karlsson finished in second place with a total time of 28:57.556.

Bacon in E1, Joshua Green (Shop Yamaha Offroad Racing Team) in E2, Jessica Gardiner (Yamaha JGR Ballard’s Off Road Team) in Women, Darren Lloyd in Veteran and Jason Salopayers in Masters all claimed consecutive wins, cementing a promising future for the final two days of the Australian Four Day Enduro.   

E1
Humble by nature, contrastingly fearless in action, Bacon was clearly unstoppable in E1. With a total time of 1:02:15.927, Bacon cooked any chance of his rivals putting him under pressure. Even as he navigated the fondly coined ‘Hotel Slide’ section of the Husqvarna test track, the Yamaha boarded speed demon finished seven gruelling hours, unruffled.

Behind Bacon in second place for Day 2 was Gas Gas’s Korey McMahon, who took his learnings from yesterday, improved and came away with a strong result. With a total time of 1:03:57.355, McMahon continues to prove time and time again, why he’s such a contender in the Enduro space. Third place for Day 2 was won by Cooper Sheidow, with a total time of 1:04:09.490.
