2019 AORC: Outright Update

3 weeks ago | Words: Andy Wigan | Photos: John Pearson Media

For reasons we outlined early in the 2018 AORC season, and later questioned in the face of growing concerns, the AORC’s official PR stopped making any reference to the Outright results last season. Unfortunately, nothing appears to have changed for 2019.

So, because we know that many people remain vitally interested in how the top AORC riders are faring against each other in both their class and the Outright standings, we’ll be publishing the 2019 AORC Outright table throughout the 2019 AORC season.
By the way, we’re doing this to aggravate AORC’s organisers, but because we strongly believe that making the Outright results public for each AORC round (along with, not instead of, the class results) is of great interest for everyone involved in the series, and the fans who follow it. The Outright adds another fascinating element to the AORC because it sheds light on the riders and/or machinery that punch above, or below, their weight when class parameters are removed from the equation. And, after all, riders pitting themselves against the clock is the essence of enduro racing, so why let the capacity of their bike get in the way of that?

Here’s how the Outright table looks as the series heads into this weekend’s back-to-back Enduro-format rounds at Dungog, the first of three times (and five rounds) that the 11-round Yamaha AORC series will be staged in NSW.*Click image to enlarge
