Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing riders Antti Hellsten, Christophe Charlier, Danny McCanney and Pascal Rauchenecker enter round three of the FIM EnduroGP World Championship in Spoleto, Italy aiming to continue their successful 2017 campaigns.
In what’s promising to be a warm and challenging weekend of enduro racing in central Italy, the Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing quartet will all be equipped with SHOT RACE GEAR’s revolutionary new line-up of OPTICA pants, jerseys and gloves. Manufactured according to the highest standards in France, SHOT RACE GEAR products are well-known within the off-road industry for their superior quality and unique design.
Pushed every step of the way by both Christophe Nambotin (KTM) and Steve Holcombe (Beta), Matt Phillips (Sherco) brought his participation in the AMV EnduroGP of Spain to a winning close by claiming a hard-fought victory on day two. Earning the win by the smallest of margins, Phillips placed 0.29 seconds ahead of Nambotin with Holcombe less than one-second behind in what was a thrilling day-long battle for supremacy in the EnduroGP class. Just as on day one conditions in Puerto Lumbreras were incredibly tough with the dry and dusty ground affording riders little in the way of rest, especially on the event’s Extreme Test. With the day shortened to a little over two laps the second stop of the 2017 EnduroGP World Championship unquestionably proved to be a demanding one.
