Last weekend, Saturday 19th and Sunday 20th June, the first round of the EnduroGP 2021 took place in Marco de Canaveses in Portugal and the Motoclub do Marco organized a race demanding and spectacular.
There are four special stages scheduled to be completed three times for each race day. A technical and fast Cross test and Enduro test, a challenging Extreme full of natural obstacles and a Super test, which in addition to Friday evening, was covered on both days of competition.
All our riders arrived in Portugal motivated to do well after the great work of the beginning of the year and the good results obtained in the Italian Championship.
Unfortunately a difficult season debut for Matteo Cavallo who arrived in Portugal with the aim of running despite the after-effects of the recent right ankle injury. Unfortunately the good intentions of the Piedmontese rider had to deal with the reality of a race that was too demanding for his form and with the too intense pain that forced him to retire after a few special stages. We are all sorry because the speed shown in the first races of the season would have surely seen him fighting for the podium in E1.
This first EnduroGP race also marked Wil’s debut in the EGP and E2 class. Even for him, given the results at the beginning of the season, expectations were high and Will did not disappoint. In Day1 he showed great speed in three of the four tests, but a heavy mistake in the extreme test relegated him to fourth place in EGP and third in E2. In Day2 he got off to a good start and entered the fight for the final victory. With a last lap without errors and great speed he managed to win his first day of EnduroGP at his debut !!!
Will: “It was an incredible weekend. My first victory in EGP will be impossible to forget !! Thanks to the Team and TM for their trust, today was a great day for us !!”
In the Junior class Lorenzo Macoritto and Matteo Pavoni shared the victories in the two days of competition in the EJ Overall class. Both have shown great speed and the ability to fight for the Championship. Pavoni with a second and first place confirms himself as leader of EJ2 and EJ Overall. Macoritto with a win and a second is tied with his rival in EJ1 and third in the EJ Overall.
Jarno: “Not many words and a lot of facts! My guys have all been great, first of all in the way they face the race and the results are a consequence of it. This will be, together with all my Team and TM, another day to remember !!! Now ready for the next battle at the Italian GP, we are waiting for you !! ”
The next round of the 2021 Enduro World Championship is scheduled for next weekend in Edolo (Bs) for the Italian GP.
