Yamaha WaveRunners is thrilled to announce its unrivalled domination at 2014 AJSBA Bridge to Bridge Race in Sydney over the weekend.
The iconic flat water river race is one of the most anticipated of the Australian Watercraft racing calendar, and counts as Round 4 of the AJSBA Australian Enduro Tour.
Yamaha Factory Team Riders Matt Brunt & Mitch Wayt both rode a flawless flag-to-flag race on their stock runabout class FZS SVHOs, with both riders launching off the line and running away from the competition early in the race.

We’re very happy with the result today; it was an excellent team performance.' Said Matt Brunt – Yamaha Factory Team Rider. 'Even before the race had started, the Yamaha FZS SVHO was showing its competitiveness throughout the practice sessions and class heats. Both Mitch and I had a fantastic start; we were able to out hole-shot the rest of the competition on our FZS SVHOs and were able to build-up an early gap and run away from the rest of the pack. By the time we crossed the chequered flag, we had built a gap of nearly a minute to third place!'
This is the third consecutive win of the season, and fifth podium in only three races for the Yamaha Factory Racing Team and their 'Stock Runabout class' FZS SVHOs.
The fifth and final round of the national tour will be held at the St George Sailing Club, Sydney on May 17. All eyes will be on the Yamaha Factory Team Riders and their 'stock class' FZS SVHOs, where they’re aiming to make it 4-wins-in-a-row out of 4 race entries; in their attempt to secure the 2014 Australian Stock Runabout Class Championship.
