Skovde, a tourist village a few kilometres from Gothenburg, hosted an unusual world GP this 2021 season.
The fourth world round began on the evening of Thursday, July 22, with the Super Test, won by our Australian driver Will Ruprecht and ended on Saturday, July 24, when Day 2 took place.
The Swedish GP was characterized not only by a different race program than usual but also by a very particular course designed for the occasion by the FMCK Military Motoclub and which included a Cross Test located inside a quarry, an Extreme Test on a ski slope and an Enduro Test in a classic sandy forest.
Will Ruprecht literally dominated the opening day by winning both, the prestigious Enduro GP, and the E2 class. The Australian Rider ran an almost perfect race and where won four of the nine special stages and finishing second in other five.
On Saturday, however, things got complicated in the final when Will Ruprecht crashed in the third Enduro Test, at the start of the last lap, throwing the final podium and the fight for first place in the Enduro GP in the air.
The final score is a fifth place in the Enduro GP and a second place in the E2 class.
Another weekend of absolute dominators in the Junior class for our two riders Lorenzo Macoritto and Matteo Pavoni.
In Sweden, our two riders fought a great battle on the edge of the seconds. Lorenzo ran a great race, winning both days of competition in the Junior and thus reopening the championship and the fight with his teammate Matteo.
Difficult weekend for Matteo Cavallo who had to stop in Day1 due to a fuel pump problem, and in Day2, while he was fighting for the podium with four other riders, for crashed heavily, without serious consequences, but had to give up. This difficult moment will also pass for Matteo who will race the ISDE with the Italian national team in the E3 class with the TM 300 FI 2T.
Jarno: “Even this week end of the race was incandescent. The leaders of the EnduroGp are always at the limit of their possibilities and this tires not only physically but also mentally.
After a first day as dominator Will paid a little for this pressure, giving space to his opponents at the end. In this sport you need great experience and Will is making a treasure race after race.
Surely his opponents on this front are more prepared! … but rest assured that we will get there ! In Junior Matteo and Lorenzo have gave a great show especially at the end of the two days with times from the top five of the EnduroGp. Lorenzo in this race had a twist more than Matteo by deservedly winning.
Now there will be the Six Days with the National team and then move on to the championship final !! Never give up!”
The end of the season will be incandescent but now the Enduro World Championship takes a long break and stops for about two months and then moves to Zschopau on 9 and 10 October for the German GP.
