KTM RIDERS TAKE 7 OF TOP 10 IN RED BULL SEA TO SKY HARD ENDURO

The fifth edition of the Red Bull Sea to Sky Hard Enduro concluded on Sunday with Graham Jarvis taking a third victory in this epic event. Red Bull KTM factory riders Jonny Walker (GBR) and Andreas Lettenbichler (GER) finished second and third with KTM riders taking seven of the top ten places in Kemer, Turkey.

Red Bull athlete Walker, who took second in the Beach Race and the Forest Race on Friday and Saturday, was the early leader in Sunday’s decisive run up Mount Olympus but Jarvis closed down on him just after the first fuel stop and steadily built on the advantage for the rest of the ascent.

The Mountain Race wrapped up three days of tough competition at ‘the most enjoyable Hard Enduro’ at a location that is becoming increasingly popular with competitors and has now evolved into an important stop on the annual competition Calendar.

5e plaats voor Lucas Dolfing tijdens Extreem in Luxemburg

Afgelopen weekend heeft TM rijder Lucas Dolfing meegedaan aan een extreem enduro in Luxemburg. Er was een ronde uitgezet van ongeveer 14 minuten. Er werd tijdens deze wedstrijd gestart met de beruchte Le Mans start. Lucas zat er redelijk goed bij met de start. De eerste paar minuten moest Lucas een beetje wennen aan de losse stenen.

Na één uur gereden te hebben stond Lucas op een 8e plaats. Dolfing maakte weinig fouten en pakte zo weer een paar rijders. Een uur later was Lucas Dolfing opgeklommen naar de 4e plaats. Tijdens de laatste paar ronden kwam de 5e man steeds dichterbij, doordat Lucas een paar kleine foutjes maakte werd het gat tussen de 4e en 5e man steeds kleiner.

Het lukte Lucas niet om de 4e plaats vast te houden en eindigde deze wedstrijd op een 5e plaats.

HUSQVARNA’S ANDREW DELONG 3RD AT MOUNTAIN RIDGE GNCC

Despite tough weather conditions Factory Husqvarna’s newly crowned National Enduro Champion Andrew DeLong finished third in Rd. 11, the Mountain Ridge GNCC after rain left the rocky course extremely slippery.

DeLong called it a tough day, as he battled with the stacked field and the wet conditions on his FC 350, but still managed to finish on the XC1 Pro podium with his third-place finish.

DeLong: “I got out to a good start and went into the woods about eight or ninth. I started picking guys off, but kept falling on the first lap. I couldn’t get anything going – I was sliding around and just couldn’t get myself together.”
