Husqvarna’s Pela Renet claimed his first double win of the season ahead of Antoine Meo with third going to Alex Salvini. Things were clearer second time out in Enduro 3, where Mathias Bellino got the lead early in the day and rode on to victory.

PELA RENET RETURNS TO HIS WINNING WAYS WITH TWO ENDURO 2 CLASS VICTORIES AT THE GP OF GREECE
The start of the second half of the 2015 FIM Enduro World Championship proved to be a hugely successful one for the Bel-Ray Husqvarna Factory Racing team. Defending Enduro 2 World Champion Pela Renet finally got back to his winning ways to secure a double E2 class win while countryman and team-mate Mathias Bellino continued his impressive form in Enduro 3, also claiming two important wins.

KTM Enduro Factory riders travelled to Serres in Northern Greece this weekend to contest Round Four of the 2015 WEC Enduro Championship, but some minor injuries and illness concerns meant the team had to be content with minor podium places.
Usually at the forefront of the E1 class, KTM Factory rider Christophe Nambotin was hampered by an injured knee, sustained in the last round in Portugal. Factory Team boss Fabio Farioli said Nambotin was ‘suffering a lot of pain’ and had difficulties putting pressure on his injured leg. Despite this, the French rider and defending champion put up a strong fight on Saturday to share second place with French compatriot Marc Bourgeois, and was again second on Sunday. On both days it was rival Eero Remes who won the competition and while Nambotin stays on top of the table, there is now a gap of four points separating him and Remes.
