SuperEnduro Junior World Champions, Blake Gutzeit and Kevin Gallas head to round three of the German Hard Enduro Series this weekend.


Riders from five nations line up for the HardEnduroSeries, Germany this weekend for round three in Meltewitz. After the long summer break, in part caused by the cancellation of the previous round, the HardEnduroSeries picks up again in Eastern Germany with a strong line-up. Meltewitz, in the Leipzig area, is hosting an extreme race for the tenth time with 150 riders. 

South African SuperEnduro World Champion from the 2016/2017 will start for the Neubert Racing Team from Frohburg, about 50 kilometres away from the venue.

His successor in SuperEnduro Juniors, Kevin Gallas, leads the HardEnduroSeries Germany with a 100% win record and will surely want to keep that record going.

American Sherco rider, Mitch Carvolth is currently on a European tour taking in the Red Bull 111 Megawatt before heading across to the Melz Exdrähm.

Behind Gallas in the championship there are currently only 12 points separating second to fifth so things are tight for podium results. 

Dirk Peter is in 6th place in the overall standings and in the special classification of the seniors after two victories currently sits in front. The leading Junior is Leon Hentschel competed like many other riders the Red Bull 111 Megawatt, and he also currently shares second overall with Robert Scharl.
