Home favourite Alfredo Gomez has made a winning start to round four of the World Enduro Super Series, Spain‰Ûªs Hixpania Hard Enduro, with victory in Friday‰Ûªs SuperEncierro Prologue.

Making it a 1-2 for Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing, Billy Bolt joined his teammate on the podium for second, while Brit Jonny Walker completed the top three.

Getting this weekend‰Ûªs three-day race underway in spectacular style the medieval town of Aguilar de Campoo in northern Spain was treated to some world-class Enduro racing. In the heart of the town square, a short-but-challenging Superenduro course was laid out for the 350 competitors, all of which entertained thousands of spectators who lined the trackside.

With the Knight Pro class taking to the track for a qualifying lap, the fastest 20 made it through to the Super Final. Bolt was quickest off the start, but a mistake in the log pit allowed Walker to immediately capitalise and take the lead.

With a mandatory Joker Lane to be completed once during the 10-minute plus two lap race, Walker dived into the section handing the lead across to Bolt and company. Tactically waiting until lap three, Gomez enjoyed a clear run through the Joker Lane emerging with the race lead. Controlling the race from then on, the Spaniard secured a memorable win to the delight of the spectators.

‰ÛÏStarting from the second row I got away really well," Gomez explained. "I got into third on the first lap and saw Jonny and Billy take the Joker Lane. I decided not to do it straight away and see when the best opportunity to do it would be. I went through on the third lap and it was just me, so it made it quite easy. I didn‰Ûªt get stuck and didn‰Ûªt make any mistakes or crash so it was all good. The goal from here is of course to win, like every race. I had some problems at the previous rounds so I hope my luck is better here.‰Û
