We take a look back at a hectic Iberian tour which tested the strength of both man and machine, with everything from sun and dust in Valpaços, to mud and rain in Santiago de Compostela…
This tour offered up some excellent organisation, starting with the Usprigozus Vilarandelo de Valpaços. They took on the challenge of hosting a world level race, despite only running national events in the past. Fernando REIS’ team prepared a fantastic Grand Prix, from both a sporting and logistics point of view. They provided everything to make the weekend run smoothly, as well as adding lots of extras for the fans to enjoy!

The second day of the Spanish Grand Prix, the 3rd round of the Maxxis FIM Enduro World Championship. A beautiful summer day greeted for all the competitors and even more spectators flooded the specials. The main difficulty was to adapt to the terrain which had suffered from the passage of so many motorcycles.
Brad FREEMAN (GBR-Beta) gave a double blow to his competitors, the British rider won for the 2nd time on Iberian soil. The Beta Boano rider this time had to scrap with Danny MCCANNEY (GBR-TM) to win. FREEMAN was very disciplined all day, keeping out of trouble. He won five tests today and finished 2nd on the tests four times. This more than satisfactory result propels him to the head of EnduroGP. He pulls 5 points out on former leader Steve HOLCOMBE (GBR-Beta).
