Enduro World Championship / Video

Brad Freeman continued his run of good form to take overall victory on day one at the Spanish EnduroGP Freeman took his second victory in a row after his success in Portugal.

The Beta Boano rider controlled his race very well. Beta Factory’s Steve Holcombe was left in the wake of his young compatriot as Brad took the head of the race on the second Enduro Test of the day and never looked back.

Second today, Holcombe should still be satisfied with this result with another podium in EnduroGP and a fresh victory in E3. But at the finish he looked deflated and Holcombe confessed he has been having health problems since the GP of Germany. Without giving any more details, the quadruple world champion admits he’s worried about his physical condition.

Brad Freeman: “It was a perfect day, I didn’t make any mistakes, I’m really happy with my riding and the way my bike reacted. The track conditions were better than I had imagined and the test were really good all day.”

Steve Holcombe: “I must confess that I am really at a loss. I can’t say much for the moment but something is wrong with my body. I’m exhausted from today and I’m worried about my physical condition. Despite today’s result not being too bad, it does not comfort me at all.”

Danny McCanney: “I am satisfied and disappointed at the same time. This mixed feeling comes from the fact that I lost a lot of time in the first extreme of the day. I had to fight all day to recover that lost time. My speed is good, I would have preferred to be in the game from the beginning.”
