2019 FIM SuperEnduro World Championship full results listing from round three in Madrid, Spain.
A dramatic night of SuperEnduro World Championship in Madrid saw the championship advantage swing to Colton Haaker. To say he got the lucky undermines his speed on a night when he surely earned the win with an impressive Superpole, heat one and heat two victories.
The reverse grid start order of heat two caused some carnage with Haaker and Blazusiak getting caught out and tangled. Webb took advantage to rip the win with Haaker eventually pulling himself back to third.
In heat three Haaker was again away at the front with Webb close behind as Blazusiak crashed out early, injuring his leg. Webb then broke a chain and had to fix it trackside. Both Webb and Blazusiak rejoined to pick up race finishes. Taddy created some of the on-track drama as ever and tonight's result loses him significant ground in the championship.
Haaker now holds a healthy championship lead on 159, Webb on 146 and Blazusiak on 128. "I'm stoked really after an up and down night emotionally." Explained Colton. "I'm not happy what happened to Cody and Taddy – I want to beat those guys and they're obviously riding super-good this year. But I knew I was riding well here and to get the overall championship lead is awesome."
Will Hoare was equally impressive in the Juniors with big winning margins in heats one and three. In heat two Hoare got held up early on the opening lap allowing David Cyprian to take advantage for the heat win.
The overall victory means Hoare extends his championship lead with six wins from nine in 2019 he sits at 167 ahead of Tim Apolle on 124 and David Cyprian on 119. Speaking after the race Will said: "In the first two races I had the start and took the chance to open up gaps and be comfortable. Race two didn't go to plan, I had some trouble in the rocks and thought I'd damaged my bike but it was ok and we still took the overall."
