Results feed: Romaniacs 2019 Day 1 – Jarvis first past the post

Results feed from day one of the 2019 Red Bull Romaniacs Hard Enduro where WESS points leaders, Graham Jarvis, takes an early lead.

 

Romaniacs day one off road in a nutshell: 

  • Graham Jarvis is your day one winner. The old dog took the race lead just before the second check point and kept it until the chequered flag. 
  • “An easier first day than last year, I kept a good pace I didn’t do anything wrong. It was good to catch the guys early on a gain a little bit of time.” said Graham at the finish. 
  • Manuel Lettenbichler had a “stupid crash” near the finish line but that didn’t stop him from clinching third place.  
  • The early stages of the first day caused some trouble for Alfredo Gomez and Wade Young. The Spaniard crashed bending his handlebars while South African, Young hit a rock hurting his foot. 
  • Despite that both of them regrouped and made it to the finish with a second place for Young and fifth for Gomez rounding out a “lead group” of five riders clear of the field.
  • Prologue winner, Taddy Blazusiak broke a fuel hose but Pol Tarres showed up carrying the needed parts which allowed him to continue. 
  • David Cyprian put in a strong performance and finishes day one sixth, mixing up with all the factory guys. 
  • Losing the use of both his GPS systems caused issues for Jonny Walker who made it to the finish line in sixth.
  • Many heavy right-handed riders across all classes got hit with speeding penalties which affected results including Walker, Blazusiak, Will Hoare and Jonathan Richardson.
  • Being first out in the woods proved not to be the ideal starting position for Pol Tarres after only managing to be ninth today.
  • Billy Bolt seemed to struggle on the first off road day and arrives 13th to the finish line nearly an hour behind his team-mate.
