HOLLIS BATTLES FOR AD4E LEAD

Posted by simon

With more dust, rocks and DNF’s, Day 2 of the A4DE took no mercy on competitors, yet didn’t falter the powerful team of Chris Hollis and his Husqvarna TE450.

As riders retraced the beaten tracks of day one, the increasingly dry course further deteriorated into a brutal combination of powder-filled ruts and exposed rock between the trees.

In true A4DE style, the extreme conditions were forcing the best of riders to make costly mistakes, though Hollis maintained the focus to fight with Jarrod Bewley for outright honors.
