One of those was current UK National Champion, Olly Jefferies.

    Nicholson takes Aussie Nats win at ACT

    Aussie Nats

    The Australian Onroad Nationals were held this past weekend at the ACT track down under. Rainy weather cut qualifying short, and delayed the following day finals. A combination of the conditions, track, and competition in attendance made for some very close racing in all classes. In the Modified TC class it would be Simon Nicholson who captured the win. XRAY’s Ari Bakla and Corey Broadstock followed Nicholson across the line to complete the Mod TC podium in second and third.
