On Saturday 3 and Sunday 4 October, the fifth and sixth round of the Assoluti d’Italia di Enduro took place in Darfo Boario Terme, in the province of Brescia.

The TM Racing Factory Team lined up at the start the only Italian rider Andrea Verona while the rest of the team moved to France to participate in the French championship.

Bad weather hit Darfo Boario Terme from Friday, usually dedicated to technical checks, and then lasted for almost the entire duration of the opening day, bringing the special tests to the limit of practicability.

Andrea Verona was unable to express himself at his best on Saturday, especially in the Enduro Test where he was unable to set good times. The final score is a sixth place in the general classification and a second place in the 250 4T class.

On Day2 Andrea Verona ran an amazing race in all the special tests, setting excellent times. The final score is definitely better than that of the opening day with an overall second place and a first place in the 250 4T class.

Next appointment, Saturday 31 October and Sunday 1 November, in Arma di Taggia for the seventh and eighth round of the Assoluti.

ANDREA VERONA

“On Saturday I was unable to go fast in the Enduro Test because the heavy rain made the three special tests difficult due to too much mud. On Sunday, however, the special tests dried up and even if they were slippery I was able to express myself at best”
