The rider to beat wherever he lines up to race, Graham Jarvis is our hard enduro rider of the year for 2017.
Hard Enduro Rider Of The Year: Graham Jarvis
For yet another year running Graham Jarvis was once again the most dominant force in hard enduro.
Just when you think his rivals have finally got the measure of him, the 42-year-old ramps things up another notch.
Coming into the 2017 season swinging, Jarvis won five races on the bounce. Most notably, two of those wins came at the Ales Treme in France and the Hell’s Gate classic in Italy.
He then went to Brazil and won a shortened Red Bull Minas Riders. Unfortunately Erzberg was the one that got away from him — the one he wanted most.
But he more than made up for that with victory at Red Bull Romaniacs, an incredible come-from-behind win at Red Bull Sea to Sky and then victory against all odds at Hixpania in Spain.
In fact he only missed the podium once this season with a fourth place finish at Megawatt. Incredible.
