With both days covering three laps of testing terrain with numerous elevation changes across 68km, Chabreloche is set to be a busy weekend of racing for all the competitors involved.
Earning a maximum of three wins from each of the days held so far, KTM’s Antoine Meo sits comfortably at the top of the point’s standings in Enduro 1. However, with his recent non-scores in the Enduro World Championship still playing on his mind, the Frenchman knows that nothing is certain yet. Trailing him by 19 points, HM Honda’s Rodrig Thain is second overall. With a 13-point cushion over Sherco’s Fabien Planet in third, Thain will he hoping to bridge the gap to Meo in Chabreloche. The Yamaha duo of Marc Bourgeois and Jeremy Joly complete the top five though Joly’s participation is doubtful due to a broken foot sustained at the EWC GP of Italy.

With a maximum points haul of 75 points, KTM’s Christophe Nambotin is the undisputed leader of Enduro 3. Behind him Emmanuel Albepart (Beta) holds second overall ahead of Sebastien Guillaume (Gas Gas) with Benoit Fortunato (Gas Gas) and Jeremy Touzain (Beta) completing the top five. Impressing everybody with his incredible results in Aiglun, Husaberg’s Mathias Bellino is very much in charge of Enduro Junior. Yamaha’s Kevin Rohmer in second holds a 12-point advantage over KTM’s Romain Boucardey.
Enduro 2 remains the tightest fought class of the series. With just eight points separating the top three, it’s KTM’s Jeremy Tarroux that leads the way over Husaberg’s Pela Renet. Kawasaki’s Julien Gauthier sits third and after his win last time out in Aiglun, he’ll be keen to win again. As a rider beginning to show great speed on the EWC, Yamaha’s Antoine Basset will be eager to mix things up and improve on his fourth place position in the standings. Adding in the Husqvarna duo of Juha Salminen and Romain Dumontier plus Belgium’s Jeff Goblet (Yamaha) ensures Enduro 2 is set to remain as unpredictable as ever.
Gas Gas’ Ludivine Puy controls the Women’s class with Blandine Dufrene (Husaberg) sitting second just one-point in front of Audrey Rossat (KTM).
