Spain’s Mario Roman has taken an early lead in the battle to become this year’s ULTIMATE ENDURO CHAMPION, claiming victory at round one of the 2019 World Enduro Super Series – the Toyota Porto Extreme XL Lagares, in Portugal. Putting in a determined display of riding, the Sherco Factory Racing star produced a terrific late race charge to top the podium ahead of teammate Wade Young (RSA) with early race leader Manuel Lettenbichler (KTM – GER) third.
Following two days of action-packed Endurocross and City Prologue racing, the stage was set for Sunday’s Hard Enduro feature race. Among the 300 competitors entered, over 50 Pro riders took to the start line of the demanding two-hour long course, which was to be completed twice. Notoriously difficult, the addition of blisteringly hot sunshine ensured a punishing start to the 2019 WESS championship.

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).
