Video highlights and race report from Brad Freeman's perfect weekend at the Italian Enduro Championship rounds five and six in Sant’Angelo in Vado - double race wins and leader's red plate for the Beta Boano rider.
Beta Boano Racing rider Brad Freeman knew how to take advantage of Steve Holcombe and Danny McCanney’s absence from rounds five and six of the 2019 Italian Enduro Championship. Freeman topped boys days of the Assoluti d’Italia, to become the new red number plate holder.
Both previous round winners, Steve Holcombe and Danny McCanneys decided not to attend the Italian Enduro Championship in order to be fit for the upcoming EnduroGP round in Greece.
That did not mean Freeman had an easy task with Thomas Oldrati and Matteo Cavallo on Saturday, and Cavallo and Alex Salvini on Sunday pushing all the way.
Freeman it was though who had the measure of the Sant’Angelo in Vado tests with his best day on Sunday when he won nine special tests out of nine and finished 46 seconds ahead of the second rider, Matteo Cavallo.
Almost identical podium results in every class across two days racing
In the 125 2T class Claudio Spanu was the fastest both days ahead of Tommaso Montanari and Giacomo Marmi.
The close battle that has been going through the season in the 250 2T class between Gianluca Martini and Maurizio Micheluz was won by the Beta rider, Martini, both days. Nicolo Mori rounded the podium on Saturday and Sunday.
Manuel Monni sat on the top of the podium on the 300 2T class with Deny Philippaerts and Alessandro Batting been second and third respectively through all the weekend.
Matteo Cavallo and Thomas Oldrati exchanged the first positions in the 250 4T class. On Saturday it was Oldrati who was the fastest and was able to put his Honda in the top spot. Anyway, on Sunday he made a mistake on the opening Enduro Test and Cavallo was able to make the best out of it and managed to win day two. Davide Guarneri placed himself on the last podium spot both days.
Double win for Salvini in the 450 4T class. The fellow Italian riders Giacomo Redondi and Davide Soreca took second and third places both days.
The Junior and Youth classes, as nearly all the senior classes, also had the same podium layout both days.
