Last weekend, Beta Motorcycles Australia hard enduro rider Ruben Chadwick took to the final round of the 2023 Australian Hard Enduro Championship for the Goldfields Extreme in Bathurst, NSW.

Saturday saw very dry, dusty conditions with a rough and rocky track testing both riders and machines, with Ruben Chadwick taking 3rd place on day one.

Starting in 3rd place on Sunday, Ruben was able to take two positions back in the rock gully section that was full of large rock steps that suited Ruben’s riding style well. He continued to battle through the course with the top 3 riders and was able to pull away from the other competitors as the day continued. The final lap saw Ruben riding on a clear track with a consistent ride that enabled Chadwick to bring home 1st place on Sunday to complete the final round of the AHEC.

After 5 grueling rounds of the AHEC, Chadwick, aboard his RR 300 Racing takes 1st place in the 2023 Australian Hard Enduro Championship.

“It’s been a full-on year with 3 wins over 5 races, and to finish the year with the championship win is a great feeling. The RR 300 Racing has performed perfectly all season and took all that I threw at it through the gruelling AHEC season. A lot of work has gone into this season to compete at this level, and I’m thankful to the Beta Motorcycles Australia team and our sponsors.” Chadwick.

“A big congratulations to Ruben, he is always super appreciative of the effort our team puts in and is super easy to work with. He puts in the hard work behind the scenes training and has really focused his efforts on Hard Enduro this season and it shows. Weare proud to have him on a Beta and to have taken out the championship.” Patrick Lowry
