A WIN FULL OF EMOTION
The 2nd round of the 2018 SuperEnduro season was a real success with the Riesa crowd, who cheered loudly for their German Junior rider Kevin GALLAS (D – Husqvarna), giving him an extra push all the way to the podium. Indeed, Kevin GALLAS, who had already proven himself in Poland where he was on great form, confirmed his early season performance tonight at home; gaining the upper hand over his competitors, not only winning all 3 heats, but also finishing more than 20 points ahead of Kyle FLANAGAN (RSA – Yamaha) and Ignacio FERNANDEZ (E – Husqvarna), who tied for second place. The youngster dedicated this impressive home victory to his father, who recently passed away.
Suffice to say that the crowd were full of pride, especially as Kevin GALLAS also took the lead in the SEWC Junior standings.

ROCKSTAR ENERGY HUSQVARNA FACTORY RACING STAR TAKES RUNNER-UP FINISH AT SECOND STOP OF THE SUPERENDURO WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP
Bouncing back from a frustrating performance at the opening round of the 2018 SuperEnduro World Championship, Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing’s Colton Haaker has made a welcome return to the SuperEnduro podium with a strong runner-up result at round two of the series in Riesa, Germany.
Feeling more in tune with his racing, and mostly staying out of trouble during the night’s three races, Haaker consistently placed at the sharp end of the field. Grabbing the holeshot in race one, he immediately put on a charge. But shortly afterwards a small crash cost him the lead and dropped him back down the field. Regrouping, he worked his way back to finish a well-deserved second.
