Alfredo Gomez – Sights Set On Top Step Of GetzenRodeo Podium

Posted:

With the outcome of the 2019 World Enduro Super Series set to come down to the wire at GetzenRodeo, Alfredo Gomez is focused on securing a championship top-three result.

One of the leading riders in this year‰Ûªs battle to become the 2019 World Enduro Super Series Champion, the Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing rider currently sits fourth in the standings, but within range of placing third or better.

Knowing a victory in Germany will offer his best chance of success, the Spaniard is aiming to use the technical and compact layout of the German course to his advantage and end his 2019 campaign in winning style.

Alfredo, the outcome of the 2019 season is set to come down to the wire at GetzenRodeo, are you excited to put it all on the line for this final round?

Alfredo Gomez: ‰ÛÏI‰Ûªm really looking forward to GetzenRodeo and what the race will bring. I‰Ûªm going there with the focus of fighting for the win. Last year I raced there and had a really big battle with Manuel Lettenbichler, but he just got me at the end. Hopefully this year I be the one finishing on the top step of the podium.‰Û

With past experience in the race, what are the keys to success?

‰ÛÏThe morning race is probably more important than the afternoon race. With only 20 places for the final you really have to push hard to get in. Ideally my goal is to finish top-five in the morning. That will help put me in a good position going into the final. The GetzenChamp race ‰ÛÒ the main event at GetzenRodeo ‰ÛÒ has added difficult sections, so the key there is not to crash - you need to try to make each section as clean as possible.‰Û

With one round remaining, what stands out as your season highlight so far?

‰ÛÏI‰Ûªve enjoyed a lot of good results this year. Finishing second in my home race of Hixpania Hard Enduro was special, but of course coming within sight of winning Red Bull Romaniacs is so far the highlight. The whole week itself was great - always fighting for a top position. It was nice to win Off Road Day 2 and of course battle right to the end. Unfortunately, the win wasn‰Ûªt to be.‰Û

How are things now with the knee injury you sustained in 2018, are you fully recovered?

‰ÛÏAlthough I will never have full mobility in my knee, I have recovered 100 per cent. The further you get down the recovery road the less you think about those early days of the injury. Despite the seriousness of it - I was close to losing my leg - the recovery went better than expected.

Doctors originally told me I would be off my bike for more than a year, but I raced again after five months. It did take almost one year to feel safe and mentally comfortable with everything, but I‰Ûªve shown this year I‰Ûªm back to my best and ready to fight for wins again.‰Û
