Continuing their season-long rivalry, Ivan Cervantes (Gas Gas) and Cristobal Guerrero (KTM) once again headed the field of riders in Spain as the previous day’s rain showers left the course in optimum condition. Securing a strong 28-second winning victory over Guerrero, Cervantes comfortably topped both the overall and Enduro 2 classification. Returned from his recent success at the Sealine Rally in Qatar, Husqvarna’s Joan Barreda placed third.
Husqvarna’s Lorenzo Santolino continues to establish himself as the rider to beat in Enduro 1. Placing over one-minute clear of Portugal’s Goncalo Reis (Gas Gas), Santolino has now won the last four days of competition. Behind the Husqvarna rider, both Reis and KTM’s Mario Roman engaged in a fierce battle for the runner up position. With Roman finishing in third place, he finished just two tenths behind the Gas Gas rider.
TM’s Aaron Bernardez finally got the better of his Husaberg rival, Joakim Ljunggren, to secure his first victory of the season. With Ljunggren in second, it was his Husaberg teammate Oriol Mena that finished third.
The Spanish Enduro Championship continues in Lalin on May 19/20.
