Following his incredible win in the BSEC series along with his spectacular performances during both the Spanish and Portuguese rounds of the Enduro World Championship, Jordan Rose confirmed his intention to stay with TM during 2013.
“I’m really pleased to be already assured of a ride for next year,” remarked Rose. “I spoke with Nick Craigie, the team boss, towards the end of July and we easily worked out a new deal. I’ve enjoyed my first year with the team and I’m thrilled that we can continue to build on what we have achieved together this season. Our focus will be to commit to the BSEC and the BEC while racing some select rounds of the EWC.”
After switching to enduro during the latter half of 2011, Rose proved to be a fast learner by clinching the 2012 British Sprint Enduro Championship in June. But it’s been his results at the EWC that have really caught people’s attention.

“I was somewhat shocked by how well my debut ride in the EWC went. To come away with four top ten results in Spain and Portugal that also included a personal best of fifth on day two in Spain was more than I originally hoped for.”
Unfortunately, the following round in Italy didn’t go to plan and after high hopes of repeating similar success, Jordan’s race ended early when he fractured a bone in his wrist on day one.
“It was disappointing to get injured in Italy but regrettably these things happen. Thankfully my wrist has healed and I can return to racing again.
“I plan on competing in a race in Ireland on August 11/12 in preparation for the next round of the British Enduro Championship in September. Using those events will have me back up to race speed in time for the ISDE in Germany.
“I’m really excited to have been picked to represent Great Britain in this year’s event and will be aiming to do my country proud.”
