Husqvarna’s Billy Bolt took his first extreme enduro win with victory at the third round of the ACU British Extreme Enduro Championship. 

Teammate Graham Jarvis suffered his first defeat of 2017 when he ran out of fuel and was later disqualified.

Having won the opening two rounds of the series to date, Jarvis had high hopes of making it a hat trick. But with stormy weather bringing extremely difficult conditions it was Bolt who shone through.

Faced with a 12-mile long course, Bolt held his nerve in the deteriorating conditions to come out on top and secure a memorable win.

 

 

For Jarvis it was a day not to be when his incredible win streak of 2017 finally came to an end. Running out of fuel on the third lap, he was then later disqualified. 

Jarvis wasn't alone with an empty fuel tank, as David Knight also ran into fuel issues. 

Starting on row three, Knight was in flying form and made up the 20 second deficit to the leaders before taking the race lead. 

Some bike issues also caused him to run dry. Losing around 10 minutes, he managed to get back into the race and carry on to still finish third, but was then later disqualified.

With two rounds remaining Bolt now heads the championship chase.
