Video highlights from 2024 Spanish Enduro Championship round two in Santiago de Compostela where Josep García has once again been the fastest ahead of Antoine Magain and Jaume Betriu.

The riders had to deal with tough conditions at round two of the 2024 Spanish Enduro Championship. A total of four laps with three specials: extreme, enduro, and cross test over two days at the town synonymous with enduro in Galicia.

Josep García carried confidence of his multiple titles and a winning ride at round one last month, despite not being happy with not having a good feeling and falling five or six times. The Red Bull KTM rider managed to pull over two minutes ahead of the second-placed rider, Antoine Magain.

Josep García: “I fell a couple of times, because the terrain was very delicate, both yesterday and today. Today in the last lap it was better because, with the sun out, it dried a lot. I'm happy with how I am physically and with the feeling with the bike.

“Today, Sunday, as it didn't rain, it was more about following the wheel, there was more grip, you didn't have to be so careful everywhere. But we still had a good day of racing and we leave with good feelings. Now it's time for a few rest days, because we've had a good workout and we're heading to Romania.”

Second place went to the Belgian Antoine Magain the Sherco rider also secured another double win in E3. Antoine Magain: “Unfortunately, I fell three times today, but the times and the speed were there and that's good for the upcoming races. I'm happy to finish second in the Scratch, especially knowing that Josep García is ahead, who is the fastest”.

“The goal is to try to get closer to him, but we have to be realistic and know that he has more speed than me. But I'm happy to have finished second and I hope to continue like this in the upcoming races.”

Jaume Betriu, gradually regaining his pace to be among the top positions, improved on day two to finish in third place, four minutes behind the winner. Satisfied with his feelings and physical condition, as fatigue has taken its toll on the riders.

An ankle injury couldn't stop Sergio Navarro finishing fourth Scratch and first in E2. Sergio Navarro: “Yesterday I had a good race, but in the last lap in the section I had a heavy fall that left me a bit stunned, bleeding from the nose, and I don't know what I did to my ankle, if it's a sprain or something, and well, I finished as I could and won my category. Today was more about trying to win again in my category, but I didn't know how my ankle would respond, and I really managed it as best as I could.”

The top five Scratch was closed by Julio Pando, second on the E2 podium, followed by Alejandro Navarro, the KTM rider finished third in E3 and sixth overall. While Cristóbal Guerrero, seventh scratch, has joined his Beta teammate Pando on the third E2 podium.
