Hitting his stride at the EnduroGP of Hungary, Christophe Nambotin returned to winning form with a bang.

Putting to rest what’s been tough couple of seasons with wins rare to come by, the KTM rider stood on the top step of the EnduroGP class podium both days in Hungary.

“It feels great to be back winning, so I hope I can continue in this way,” told Nambotin. “There are three or four riders riding very well in the EnduroGP class so it looks like there will be many more close battles this season.”

Fourth in class during the Friday night Super Test, Nambotin wasted no time in getting up to speed on day one in Hungary as he posted the fastest times in both the opening extreme and enduro tests. 

“I rode well this weekend, I feel much better than I did at the start of the season and I really enjoyed this GP. It was important to have a good first lap on day one, which I managed to do.”

Going on to top a further three special tests the Frenchman ended the day with a deserved first EnduroGP class win of 2017. 

On day two, despite continued pressure from team-mate Nathan Watson, Nambotin put his experience to good use to complete the perfect GP with a second day win. 

“Honestly, I found the last lap on day two a little bit difficult. I had to push as hard as I could on every special test to stay ahead of Nathan, and in this heat it wasn’t easy. 

“But I didn't have any crashes, just some small mistakes and that made the difference.

“The team have put in a lot of work, so to reward them with victory is really good. Roll on Greece next weekend.”
