Husqvarna Motorcycles enter round four of the Enduro World Championship in Serres, Greece aiming to continue their successful 2015 campaign.
It’s the event that marks the halfway point in this year’s EWC championship and one the Bel-Ray Husqvarna Factory Racing team are approaching in high spirits. The GP of Greece is set to be a long, hot and demanding with all team riders looking to repeat wins or podium finishes across all classes.
On his first season aboard Husqvarna’s TE 300, Mathias Bellino currently leads the standings in the highly-competitive Enduro 3 class. After a tough GP in Portugal Bellino is ready to return to his winning form this weekend. On more than one occasions this year the Frenchman has shown that on a good day he can deliver start-to-finish victories, which is exactly what he is looking to try to repeat in Serres.
With three GPs already in the books Manxman Danny McCanney holds third place overall in the Enduro 1 class standings and is looking to improve on that in Serres. A confidence-boosting third place on day two of the last race in Portugal has given Danny an encouraging push to fight for podium success in Greece.
Defending Enduro 2 champion Pela Renet arrives in Serres with the clear goal of fighting for the class win – the only podium result missing from his 2015 season so far. A key player in what has become one of the most heated E2 class battles of recent years, Renet hasn’t once finished outside the podium in all six days of competition held so far. Holding second place in the class standings Renet enters the Greek round with high expectations.
Jamie McCanney heads into the GP of Greece focused on success having lead the Enduro Juniors class championship standings from day one. After six races this season Jamie has secured three wins and three additional podium finishes. His main goal during the GP of Serres is to maintain, or even extend, his points advantage.
