Queensland enduro hotshots Luke Styke and Fraser Higlett shared the wins between them at the weekend's AORC double-header at Dungog.

On Saturday, Husqvarna rider Higlett broke Luke Styke's winning streak as he took the first E1 victory of his career, finishing five seconds clear of Styke, with Victorian Jack Simpson over a minute behind.

Styke counter-punched immediately however, logging his fifth E1 win of the season the next day with a time 17 seconds clear of Higlett, who was more than 30 seconds clear of Frenchman Jeremy Carpentier.

Styke holds a 24-point lead in the championship with Higlett 23 points clear of third-placed Simpson.

In the E2 and E3 categories respectively, Daniel Sanders (Husqvarna) and Daniel Milner (KTM), respectively, maintained their parallel unbeaten runs.
