Positieve start in het EK Enduro voor Vilde Holt en Marc Zomer

Het afgelopen weekend stond de eerste wedstrijd van het Europees Kampioenschap Enduro op het programma in het Italiaanse Foggia. Marc Zomer wist hier een top tien plaats te behalen in de J2 klasse en Vilde Holt eindigde als vierde bij de dames.

Op dinsdag reisde Marc af naar Foggia in Italie om daar in het weekend deel te nemen aan de eerste ronde van het Europees Kampioenschap Enduro. Omdat het er nog geen goed weer was, lag er nog een pak sneeuw in de bergen en hierdoor werd de eerste proef afgelast. Wel was deze in de route opgenomen maar dit betekende wel dat er slechts twee proeven per ronde over bleven.

Door de smeltende sneeuw en de regen die er viel van vrijdag op zaterdag was het erg nat en glad. In de eerste proef was Marc daarom iets te voorzichtig en liet tijd liggen. De tweede proef lag hem goed en hier wist hij de gehele dag goede tijden neer te zetten. In de tweede ronde ging proef 1 al een stuk beter en hier reed hij zo’n dertig seconden sneller dan in de eerste ronde. Helaas kreeg hij in de derde en laatste ronde hier een tegenslag te verwerken want hij kwam achterop een langzamere rijder waardoor hij veel tijd verloor. Uiteindelijk sloot hij de eerste dag af op een twaalfde plaats in de J2 klasse en werd 63ste in de scratch.

Na de twaalfde plaats op de eerste dag had Marc zich als doel gesteld om op zondag in de top tien te finishen. Door het smeltwater dat van de berg af liep, werd proef 1 steeds slechter. Hier had hij het moeilijk mee waardoor de tijden beter hadden gekund. De rest van de dag verliep probleemloos en dit zorgde ervoor dat hij de dag afsloot op een tiende plaats in de J2 klasse en hij werd 55ste in de scratch.

Volgend weekend gaat het Europees Kampioenschap Enduro verder in Hongarije.

Erik Willems e Dan Mundell protagonist of Borilli Enduro European Championship day 2

With a gap of 0.59 seconds Erik Willems wins the overall standings for the second time, Dan Mundell settled in second position while, more delayed, Enrico Rinaldi closes the podium.

In the town of Pietramontecorvino, on Sunday 20th of March the second and last day of MOTOCROSS MARKETING Round 1# kicked off. The Borilli Enduro European Championship reaches its second day of competition that, as anticipated, looked like the previous one. It took place on three laps with two special tests, the Eleveit Enduro Test, performed in the first time control and the Airoh Cross Test, positioned within the second time control.

The trials formed during yesterday did not only make the transfer impervious but also the Eleveit Enduro Test which gave a lot of hard wring to the 96 riders who started on this second day of the race. The Airoh Cross Test did not undergo any particular changes, developed on a hard and dry ground and presented itself to the pilots in the conditions in which they had left it.

The battle for the first position has turned into a two-side box match made of blows and against blows; two are the names that we will have well imprinted in our minds, Erik Willems and Dan Mundell. These two incredible riders fought each other throughout the day giving the large audience a reason to stay until the end; in fact, the winner of MOTOCROSS MARKETING day 2 was decreed at the end of the last special. A battle carried out in full respect of the opponent and which ended with a great handshake between the two contenders and with the promise that in Hungary the rankings will be reversed. Unlike yesterday Enrico Rinaldi had a slow start which prevented him from entering the battle ring but despite everything he ended today third overall.

Erik Willems: “I started very strongly, I immediately found the feeling with the special stages. In the second lap, unfortunately, I crashed in the Eleveit Enduro Test, I drove well in the second Airoh Cross Test. In the last enduro test I tried to survive and drive safely. Arriving at the last race I had nothing to lose and I pushed and gave everything and even today he rewarded me.”

Dan Mundell: “I fought all day with Erik, I wasted time in the first Enduro Test, I managed to take the leadership of the gender ranking at the end of the last Eleveit Enduro Test but I knew that in the Airoh Cross Test we were very close in terms of time. I pushed to the last but Erik was faster. I’ll take revenge in Hungary.”

Enrico Rinaldi: “I struggled to find the right pace today, at first I couldn’t be fast enough but then the speed came, not only in the Enduro Tests but also in the Cross Test and I’m really happy with that.”

Erik Willems also reconfirmed his performance on day two and consolidated the leadership of the category reserved for the overall winner. He won the special plaque signed MOTOCROSS MARKETING, a special prize reserved for the overall winner of this first round; the Belgian also won the plaque of championship leader. A great weekend of racing yours!

Within Youth, Manuel Verzeroli (Sissi Racing) gave everything he had to reconfirm the victory of day 1 and succeeded in a great way. Two small mistakes in the enduro test gave Daniele Delbono the illusion that he could take the first place that for him will be the goal of the next round. Alberto Elgari after a first day of the race in which he suffered, managed to realize good times even within the Eleveit Enduro Test and today closed third.

Simone Cristini (GTG Motogamma), Killian Lunier and Carlo Minot have carried out throughout the day, within Junior 1. To get the victory was the Italian, Simone Cristini, who managed to keep up well throughout the competition and at the end of the last special he saw the first position arriving into his hands. The Frenchman Killian Lunier for only 1.5 seconds had to settle for second place while the other Italian driver, Carlo Minot, took the third class position.

Junior 2 saw a difficult start for its winner, Enrico Rinaldi (GTG Motogamma) who struggled to find the right rhythm in the first stages but regained his usual pace and made an incredible comeback up to the first step of the podium. Lorenzo Bernini gave everything today but he failed to realise the victory of the day and therefore finished second. The Czech driver, Zdenek Pitel, reconfirmed the third position obtained on the previous day.

Also within E1 an incredible battle was carried out between Maurizio Micheluz and Federico Aresi (Sissi Racing). Maurizio Micheluz after a long fight managed to impose himself on his rival and for only 4 seconds he therefore reconfirmed what he did on the previous day. Federico Aresi made his bike “sing” but his compatriot still got the better of him. Jacopo Traini finished the podium, his excellent race that remained stable in third position for all race long.

E2 saw the victory of Erick Willems who after reconfirming the absolute victory also took home the class victory. Giuliano Mancuso, after a day 1 not exactly up to his expectations, took home the second position in the category. To close the podium the Englishman Thomas Ellwood who lost a position compared to day 1.

Dan Mundell would have lost the overall victory but the class victory never left his hands for a second. With the victory of all the special tests, he definitely prevailed over Belgian rival Damianes Dietger who, despite the excellent times recorded throughout the day did not reach the final goal. The podium of the E3 class has re-proposed itself the same as that of the previous day and therefore in third place we find the French David Abgrall.

Alessandro Rizza confirms his first position within the Senior class with the second class victory. This is a difficult race that took place in Pietramontecorvino but that failed to knock out the strong Italian driver. German Arne Domoyer also repeated the performance recorded on day 1 and confirmed his second position. Slovenian Martin Gottvald also confirmed what he did during the first day of competition and he is on the third step of the podium.

The Englishman Nieves Holmes wins the second consecutive victory within the class reserved for women. The Czechoslovak driver crossed the Frenchwoman and took the second position, tying the transalpine in third place. The podium is therefore composed as follows: Nieves Holmes, Zuzana Novackova and Marine Lemoine.

The 24MX 50 cc Trophy saw 5 drivers at the starting gates but also today the difficulty of the track prevented three of them from crossing the finish line. Luca Piersigilli took the victory that had escaped him yesterday. Niko Guastini, winner yesterday, today settled in second place. In special recognition of their efforts, 24MX has reserved for the protagonists of its trophy a rich prize made by products signed 24MX. An excellent result was achieved by the two young Italians. Riding their Beta 50 they have gathered a lot of experience that will be useful to them in the competitive future.

The Eleveit Enduro Test with its trials and the huge amount of water has put the riders in difficulty; being able to interpret it better was not easy. It was necessary to find a compromise between aggression and delicacy to be able to get to the bottom without making mistakes. The one who found the right combination of these two elements was the Englishman Dan Mundell.

The Airoh Cross Test was gentle with its competitors, the fast and smooth track allowed the riders to better express their speed, but at the same time the absence of trials required a certain mastery of their bike. The best interpreter of this track was Willems.

The inaugural round of the Borilli Enduro European Championship 2022 has officially ended. The large amount of water that appeared following the melting of the snow increased the difficulty of the tracks making some changes necessary; despite this, the special tests, thanks to their diametrically opposite natures, allowed each rider to better express their skills. What a beautiful race went on this weekend.

The next round is closer than we think, in Hungary, on 2nd April and 3rd April, the next two days of the Borilli Enduro European Championship 2022, entitled ELEVEIT Round 2 will start. If what happened to MOTOCROSS MARKETING Round 1 thrilled you, stay with us because this is just the beginning.

Battle at the last corner at the first stage of the Borilli Enduro European Championship 2022

Erik Willems wins the overall standings at the MOTOCROSS MARKETING ROUND 1# with a gap of 0.41 seconds from direct pursuer Dan Mundell and 0.44 from third place Enrico Rinaldi

The Borilli Enduro European Championship 2022 finally started; on Saturday 19 March in the city of Pietramontecorvino (Italy) at 9 am the show began. 112 riders from 15 different nations fought over three laps of the race. Each lap included two special tests, the Eleveit Enduro Test located within the first time check, and the Airoh Cross Test at the end of the second time check.

A very difficult first sector, characterised by a strong presence of mud due to the snow that fell in the previous days. The dissolution of the same brought a large amount of water inside the track that made the passage of the pilots particularly complex. The Eleveit Enduro Test was also characterised by a large amount of mud and deep and insidious channels that put a strain on the competitors in the race. After Eleveit Enduro Test, the transfer was quite smooth and allowed the riders to catch their breath before facing the Airoh Cross Test. The webbing test was located on a field with different counter-slopes and was characterised by a soft and clayey bottom. Following last night’s rains, the race direction decided to cut a small piece of track inside the Airoh Cross Test because it was passing through a small stream, which swelled tonight.

Two diametrically opposite special stages that required the riders to show their versatility and ability to adapt to the different ground conditions present. It ranges from the mud and ready channels of the Eleveit Enduro Test to the soft and channelless terrain of the Airoh Cross Test. Mastery of driving and riding position were the keys to correctly interpret Eleveit Enduro Test while a cross-style guide turned out to be the most effective to achieve the best times within the Airoh Cross Test.

A battle for the first absolute position that saw Enrico Rinaldi (GTG Motogamma), Dan Mundell and Erick Willems get a hard time; a succession of leadership changes that have left everyone breathless. Enrico was much more effective and faster in the Eleveit Enduro Test while Erik showed off his motocross skills, scoring incredible times in the Airoh Cross Test. Dan Mundell, on the other hand, proved to be constant in all the tests, with each lap the times were getting better and better. A battle that saw paltry detachments, Erick Willems wins by only 0.41 cents over Dan Mundell, who in turn detaches Enrico Rinaldi by only 0.3 cents.

Enrico Rinaldi: “I’m not 100% satisfied with my race, in the Enduro Test I was very incisive and I managed to make good times but I lost the seconds gained within the Cross Test”.

Dan Mundell: “I had fun, I took my payback. Starting back I had to overcome many pilots. The track was really challenging. I’m really happy with the result brought home today”

Erick Willems: “I’m very happy with how I drove, I haven’t been practising enduro for long and I used everything I learned in the cross to impose myself on rivals. I arrived at the last special, aware that I could take the first position and I gave everything and I succeeded. I couldn’t have started the championship better”

Maurizio Micheluz dominated day 1 inside E1, he did not take home the victory in all the special stages but his results have always been constant and this allowed him to take home the final victory. A hard fight was fought between Micheluz and Federico Aresi (Sissi Racing), but the latter had to settle for second place. Polish Dawid Babicz finished on the podium of E1.

Erik Willems takes home a double victory at MOTOCROSS MARKETING day1, in addition to the overall victory, he obviously turned out to be the best rider of E2. Nicola Recchia (M.A.S.T Racing Team) gave battle to the Belgian driver; he managed to impose himself on the second lap at the Airoh Cross Test. Thomas Ellwood earned the third class position with today’s excellent performance.

Dan Mundell is the winner of the E3 class, his victory was the result of a long series of good times recorded throughout the day. The Airoh Cross Test is well interpreted by the Englishman who has always imposed his name on that of his rivals. French rider Abgrall David, riding Sherco, recorded excellent times in the Eleveit Enduro Test. Belgian driver Damiaens Dietger did everything he could to take home the victory but nothing could against his classmates. “Only” a third position arrived for him today.

Junior 1 is the class dominated by the Italian Carlo Minot riding TM. With the exception of the first special stage where due to a delay of 2.48 seconds he finished third, Minot led to the paddock the victory in all the special stages. An absolute domain to which Simone Cristini (GTG Motogamma) had to submit. The gap is not much but still enough to relegate him to second position behind his compatriot. Killian Lunier (LM), Frenchman riding KTM, today was satisfied with the third class position but tomorrow is a brand new day!

Enrico Rinaldi (GTG Motogamma) will not have won the absolute but he won his class. Inside the J2 he imposed himself on everyone by detaching the second classified, Lorenzo Bernini by 1.43 seconds. Lorenzo in turn detached Czechoslovak pilot Zdenek Pitel by about a minute.

Alessandro Rizza could not have done better, he secured the victory of the Senior class with a time of 3 minutes shorter than that of his direct pursuer Arne Domeyer. The German driver on KTM led a great race but nothing could against the skill of the italina. Slovenian driver Martin Gottvald is in third place today.

The women in the championship defended their honour well by taking home excellent times, first of all the Englishman Nieve Holmes who with his Sherco won the category. France’s Marine Lemoine today took second place while the representative of the Czech Republic, Zuzana Novackova, concluded the MOTOCROSS MARKETING Round 1# in third place.

Manuel Verzeroli (Sissi Racing) and Daniele Delbono (GTG Motogamma) fought without the exception of blows that led the first to win the Youth class while the second to place himself in second position. Throughout day 1 the first positions were contested by the two italian guys that left everyone breathless. Clement Clauzier, a French driver, did not stand by and watch, on the contrary, he made the two blues hear the roar of his Fantic but in the end he finished third.

The competitors in the race have not only fought for individual glory but also for that of their team, within the ranking reserved for them, Trade Team, Motoclub Lago d’Iseo triumphed over everyone. Daniele Delbono, Simone Cristini, Enrico Rinaldi and Lorenzo Bernini set the best team time and detached Diligenti Racing by about a minute. Maurizio Micheluz, Giuliano Mancuso, Jacopo Traini and Dan Mundell fought to the end but they could not do anything against Lake Iseo. In third position, Sebino Motoclub composed, Edoardo Paganini, Nicola Recchia, Alessandro Rizza and Matteo Grigis.

The 24 MX 50 cc Trophy saw 5 riders at its start, of whom only two came to the end. The winner today turned out to be Niko Guastini riding a Beta while Luca Piersigilli finished the day in second place. Today’s difficult stage, especially given the nature of the Eleveit Enduro Test.

The beautiful Airoh Cross Test saw Nicola Recchia (M.A.S.T. Racing Team) as its best performer, the Italian rider is currently at the top of the special standings, will he be able to repeat the result tomorrow and defend the title?

The Eleveit Enduro Test put the riders in a lot of difficulty; its technical peculiarities required great skill to be able to better interpret it. Enrico Rinaldi (GTG Motogamma) was able to squeeze his bike to the maximum on the track. Will the Italian rider be able to hold the leadership of the Eleveit Enduro Test Trophy?

MOTOCROSS MARKETING 1# day1 is officially over, with the tire change and the return of the bikes to the closed park, the closing of the first day of the Borilli Enduro European Championship race was sanctioned. Today’s day will be repeated with some small changes even on day 2.

Tomorrow the leaders of the general classification of the Borilli Enduro European Championship 2022 will be decreed, stay with us to find out what their names are.
