The second round of the hotly contested SuperEnduro World Championship is well underway inside the Palau Sant Jordi stadium in Barcelona. Executing a perfect start-to-finish win, championship leader Blazusiak took pole position heading into the evening’s three main event finals.
Although only making his debut ride in this year’s series, Antoine Meo (KTM) is already in the mix of things. Chasing Blazusiak home for second position in the 10-lap qualifier race, Meo is clearly capable of delivering a surprise result once the start gate drops on the main event.
Recovering strongly following a bad start, Honda’s David Knight worked his way up to the rear wheel of Meo to take third place. Getting his debut ride with KTM off to a promising start, Spain’s Ivan Cervantes ended the heat race in fourth.
After working his way from fifth to third place during the early stages of the race, Jonny Walker (KTM) crashed in the tricky rock garden on the penultimate lap and slipped back to fifth overall.
With the majority of riders commenting that the layout of the course is enjoyable to ride and offers plenty of overtaking opportunities the stage is set for an action packed night of racing.
