Victory for Holcombe on day one of GP of Sweden

Steve HOLCOMBE (Beta) has claimed his second overall EnduroGP winning result of the 2016 season, battling to a hard-fought victory on day one of the GP of Sweden in Enkoping. Putting his disappointing day two result at last weekend’s GP of Finland well and truly behind him he finished one-minute ahead of overall runner-up Matt PHILLIPS (Sherco). Third in EnduroGP went to Eero REMES (TM).

With heavy rain falling throughout the night prior to the first day of competition in Enkoping, further rain during the day resulted in a very long, wet and physically demanding seven hours in the saddle. But for HOLCOMBE the day ended in the best possible way – with the senior class rookie having not made any serious mistakes on any of the nine special tests.
