ALFREDO GOMEZ SECURES FIFTH OVERALL FOR BEL-RAY HUSQVARNA FACTORY RACING

At the end of a drama filled night Husqvarna’s Alfredo Gomez finished fifth overall at the first round of the 2015 FIM SuperEnduro World Championship. Faced with a demanding track and what many considered to be the strongest ever line-up of indoor enduro specialists, Gomez secured consistent results despite making mistakes in all races.

The night’s opening Prestige class final saw Alfredo claim the holeshot and remain out front for three laps. Looking extremely comfortable around the unpredictable course, in trying to pass a stranded, lapped rider Alfredo was knocked off the track and off his bike. Frustratingly, in an instant he went from race leader to third with further mistakes seeing him eventually place fifth.

In the second and third finals Alfredo saw small mistakes prevent him from placing higher than the sixth and fifth place results he secured. Showing good speed, and ensuring a strong start to his 2015 SuperEnduro campaign, Alfredo sits just five points behind third placed Cody Webb in the SuperEnduro World Championship standings.

De derde en laatste proef was ook op een stuk bouwland met daarin een grote zand bult en een paar stukjes over de weg.

De eerste dag van de 2 daagse startte om vrijdag. Er moesten 4 ronden afgelegd worden. Om iets over half 9 ging Lucas Dolfing van start. Tijdens de eerste ronde reed Lucas niet met veel risico. Er waren hier en daar nog een paar gladde stukken zowel in de proef als op de route. In de tweede ronde van de Enduro waren de proeven al een stuk beter. In de meeste bochten lagen al mooie sporen. Lucas wist zo ook zeer goede tijden neer te zetten. Ook in de derde en vierde ronde ging het Lucas goed af. Hij nam niet te veel risico en wist zo 8 proeven op zijn naam te schrijven. Dit was voldoende om de dagoverwinning te pakken.
