KNMV informatie FIM ISDE 2017

In de week van 28 augustus tot en met 2 september 2017 wordt in Brive (Frankrijk) de ISDE 2017 (International Six Days Enduro) georganiseerd. Wij hebben vanuit de organisator het bericht ontvangen dat één Nederlands World Trophy Team en zes Clubteams geaccepteerd zijn.

Het is op dit moment nog niet zeker of daadwerkelijk een World Trophy Team (WTT) vanuit de KNMV wordt afgevaardigd. Aan selectie voor het WTT zit namelijk een aantal regels en voorwaarden vast. Vanuit het bestuur van de KNMV is vooraf een duidelijke ambitie geformuleerd: alleen wanneer een top-8 eindklassering in het WK haalbaar is, vaardigen we een Nederlands team af.

Inmiddels is een werkgroep gestart met het opstellen van transparante en reële selectiecriteria om zo een duidelijke afweging te maken over het al dan niet afvaardigen van een team naar de International Six Days Enduro. Als we besluiten een World Trophy Team af te vaardigen naar Frankrijk, dan is het ook onze intentie om een KNMV Club Team mee te sturen.

Laborious start to the season for the official Gas Gas team in the always unusual and complicated Enduro GP Finland 2017

A complicated weekend was had by the Gas Gas Enduro Factory team and its official rider, Jonathan Barragán, who closed the GP Finland with the bitter-sweet taste of not being able to finish on the first day and achieving a fifteenth place in Enduro2 on Sunday. There was an unusual start to the World Championship with a GP that favoured the Scandinavian riders who were more familiar than the other competitors to riding on studded snow tyres and riding with them on ice and snow.

ROCKSTAR ENERGY HUSQVARNA FACTORY RACING BATTLE THROUGH CHALLENGING ENDUROGP OF FINLAND

FROZEN CONDITIONS ENSURE TOUGH WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP SERIES OPENER
Pascal Rauchenecker has delivered the Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing team’s best result at the opening round of the FIM EnduroGP World Championship, with the Enduro 2 class rider securing a hard-fought third place result on day one of the GP of Finland. Until recently focused on his participation in the SuperEnduro World Championship, Pascal rode a near faultless opening day to stand alongside Finns Eero Remes and Henric Stigell on the podium.

Delivering one of the best performances from a non-Scandinavian rider in the specialist, winter conditions Pascal remained both fast and consistent throughout the opening day. Posting the third fastest class time on no fewer than seven special tests, the FE 250 mounted rider made a hugely positive start to his second season of enduro competition. On day two Pascal again recorded third place test finishes, wrapping-up the GP of Finland with an eighth-place Enduro 2 class result.
