AJ Roberts blitz NSW Enduro for Husqvarna
Husqvarna’s AJ Roberts claims his maiden outright win at round one and two of the NSW Enduro series held at Gwandalan Junior Trials Facility on March 5 and 6. 22 year old Roberts who stepped up to the premier E2 class (250cc two-stroke and 450cc fourstoke) for 2005 made the journey south from Queensland to contest the titles. He set the trails alight from the outset over the two day event riding his Husqvarna WR 250 two stoke to not only the outright win but also the Pro E2 class, a feat Husqvarna hasn’t seen since back in 2000.
In changeable conditions over some varied terrains Roberts an Australian ISDE Junior representative was more surprised at his taming of the field aboard his WR250 than in his previous meetings.
“I’m sure I wouldn’t be in this position without my Husqvarna WR250. After getting off the WR125 last year I’ve just clicked with the WR250. The bike is awesome and I never had one problem with it all weekend. Consistency is what counts over such a long day in the saddle and the WR is the reason I can celebrate. I chose Michelin MH3 and MF3 for the enduro and I couldn’t have wanted anything more. I was able to be fast, smooth and keep up a rhythm that put the pressure back on
the rest of the field.
