The fourth round of the Spanish Enduro Championship at Infiesto saw the KTM rider Josep Garcia topping the overall more than two minutes ahead of Jaume Betriu and Enric Francisco.
The northern town of Infiesto hosted the fourth round of the Spanish Enduro Championship this weekend, June 8-9. The action kicked-off on Saturday with the Supertest to follow with the Enduro race on Sunday where the riders had to complete three laps of a course consisting of three special tests and a demanding liaison.
The weather forecast predicted rain for both days but it held until midday on Saturday. Anyway, this didn’t stop Josep Garcia, who was back at the Spanish championship after missing the previous round due to clashing with Le Trèfle Lozérien, round 2 of the WESS, where he took another dominant win on grass tests.
The weekend started in the best possible way for Garcia after setting the fastest time in the Supertest, despite falling down in the log section. Jaume Betriu and Enric Francisco followed in second and third.
Garcia gives takes no prisoners on Sunday
From the first special test, Garcia set the fastest time and from there on he just went on to stretch his advantage from the following riders. Even the rain that fell midway during the race didn’t hold back the KTM rider who just went all out and won the overall by more than two minutes as well as the E1 class.
The battle for second and third was also non-existent, Jaume Betriu sat second from the first test and didn’t let it go and Eric Francisco did the same with the third place. Francisco still holds the red number plate that awards him as the fastest overall rider.
In E1 Garcia was followed by Kirian Mirabet and Marc Sans; Jaume Betriu took the E2 top spot in front of the current class leader Cristobal Guerrero and Tosha Schareina; in E3 it was Eric Francisco who topped the class with Ramon Quer and Jonathan Barragan second and third respectively.
In the Junior Open Julio Pando was the fastest rider and Sergio Navarro took the honours in the Junior 125 class. Mireia Badia topped the Women’s class.
