FIM European Enduro Championship
Double for Batti
At the second day of the first round of the FIM European Enduro Championship in Fabriano / Italy the local hero Alessandro Battig took the overall victory as he did onthe first day:
Again his countryman Maurizio Micheluz was the fastest for a while but then, the Husqvarna rider made some mistakes in the following enduro test and finished only fourth behind his team-member Matteo Pavoni, the reinging overall champion, in the end of the day.
Second behind the winner Battig became a new young gun: Lorenzo Macoritto, starting in the juniors-class „E2/E3“ with the big Husqvarna 2-stroke-bike.
Best „non-italian“ was the french Hugo Blanjoue on fifth position. The Junior was on second position in his class behind Macoritto.
In the seniors-class the polish rider Sebastian Krywult on the KTM won both days and is now leading in the championship.
In the women-class the former champion Sanna Kärkkainen from Finland ist back. She won the second day too, while the Dutch Nina Klink got used to her 4-stroke-bike and became second. All the years Klink was racing with 2-stroke-bikes and this was her first competition with her news 350cc 4-stroke-KTM.
