Enduro World Championship Rider Of The Year: Steve Holcombe
As a now two-time Enduro World Champion Steve Holcombe is the rider all others are measured against in the EnduroGP paddock.
Meticulous in his preparation for the 2017 season, the Beta rider grew both in confidence and speed as the series progressed.
Knowing where and when he could preform at his best, he did exactly that taking control of the point’s lead after the GP of Hungary.
Building momentum, he entered the penultimate round in Britain odds on favourite for title honours and he left it with a 40-point virtual grasp on the #1 plate.
Despite not needing a winning result at the season finale in Germany, Holcombe arguably delivered the greatest ride of his career to date.
Leaving everyone playing catch up, he charged his way to a commanding double win and the EnduroGP World Championship crown.
