Italian Enduro Championship
This weekend the seventh round of the Italian Enduro Championship took place in Bettola, in the province of Piacenza,
The race was organized by the Motoclub Ponte dell'Olio with a full program of events including an exciting extreme evening prologue. The best time was recorded by Steve Holcombe (Beta) ahead of his team mate and rival Alex Salvini, Thomas Oldrati was 3rd. The three heroes then drenched the rocks and the fans in sparkling wine !
The real race took place on Sunday, July 8, with one of the most difficult trials of the season. There were three special stages, the Extreme Test X-CUP Maxxis - Galfer, the Airoh Cross Test and the Enduro Test Just1, With 4 laps there was a total of over one hour and twenty minutes race time.
After seven hours of continuous battling the two main contenders - Alex Salvini and Steve Holcombe - were separated by less than 2 seconds with Holcombe taking the win !
Several of the class titles were already assigned with Niccolò Scarpelli taking the 125 and Claudio Spanu the 2018 Youth championship ! Paola Riverditi was the best Lady and Husqvarna Osellini was the best team.
For the Airoh Cross Test and for the X-CUP Maxxis - Galfer, the best rider at Bettola was Alex Salvini, who wins the seventh round of both trophies.
Finally we want to send a best wishes to Rudy Moroni, who sustained a should injury!
