Alex Salvini made a double blow with a clear victory in Enduro 2 where he beat Loic Larrieu and Corsican Christophe Charlier who finally took his first podium of 2018.
"I'm getting used to the pain and the wrist has not bothered me that much... but me and the team lacked a little with my bike settings, and it was not easy for me on these tests. But to finish 4th today is not so bad," Charlier said.
Brad Freeman was untouchable in E1 and thus takes the lead of the championship in this category in front of Jamie McCanney who will also push hard at the next event as Freeman is on the rise. Antoine Basset secured another podium in E1, even thought he had to hold off Alex Snow at the start of the day.
"To have a weekend like this is so unexpected for me," Freeman enthused. "It has been so fun and also really successful. Now I look forward to the next Grand Prix, The Wall, which could be one of the turning points of the season".
Steve Holcombe had no opponent to match him in Enduro 3 despite the "awakening" on Sunday of Christophe Nambotin, and the superb performance of Danny McCanney.
"I took big points in EGP and I won in E3... so it's been a good weekend for me," Holcombe said. "But I have suffered with a rib injury from Finland onwards and I am only at 90% of my best form, but it's improving very slowly. We are only halfway through the season and everything is still possible!"
Already at the mid-point, next stop: THE Wall!
The milestone of the mid-season has been reached with this superb Maxxis Grand Prix of Estonia... the next stop of 2018 will be on June 29 and 30 in Pietramurata (Italy) for the famous event "The Wall", which will see traditional Enduro flirt with a "Hard Enduro" type event. This will be a major and innovative meeting where Alex Salvini and Matteo Cavallo will be the big favourites to experience the greatest joy of all - winning in front of the thousands of 'Tifosi' expected in the region of Trento!
