European Enduro: David Abgrall crowned 2023 champion in Poland
Results from the final 2023 Borilli European Enduro Championship round of the season where consistency paid off for French rider David Abgrall who claims the overall title in Kielce, Poland.
It might “only” have been a fourth place result for David Abgrall on day one of the weekend’s racing in the European Enduro series, but it was enough to seal the overall title for 2023 for the Frenchman.
Consistency helped Abgrall, who never claimed a scratch result all season, to snatch the title with one day of racing still to go in sunny and dry conditions in Kielce.
Overall winner on day one was former champion Krystof Kouble who took an “almost perfect” set of test results for the best scratch time ahead of Alex Walton and 2022 champion, Erik Willems.
With second overall and in class, Alex Walton nailed a strong season in this series to take the European Championship crown for E2 one day early also.
He wasn’t alone, Andreas Beier signed off day one with championship success in the E1 too. The German rider also took the title a day early by triumphing over Aleksander Bracik and Alessandro Di Gregorio.
