Billy Bolt has continued his domination of the 2022 FIM SuperEnduro World Championship by winning all three races at the third stop of the series in Israel.

Brit Jonny Walker finished second with a pair of seconds and a third while Taddy Blazusiak rounded out the podium with two third places and a second

Claiming the overall victory at each round so far, Bolt arrived in Jerusalem determined to secure a third consecutive trip to the top step of the podium. Strong in training and quick to figure out the tight, technical, and slippery nature of the course, Bolt started the round in fine form topping the SuperPole qualification.

After a steady start to race one, the Brit quickly positioned himself inside the top three on lap one and when the right opportunity arose, made two decisive overtakes to take control of the race. From there he was never headed and ticked off the laps to claim the race win ahead of Walker and Blazusiak.

Taking a relaxed approach to race two for the reversed grid positions, Bolt stayed out of trouble through the opening corners to put himself into contention. With two smart moves, he took over the race lead and quickly checked out with Blazusiak this time runner up and Walker third.

Picking up the holeshot in race three, Bolt put his head down and pushed hard to build up a comfortable lead. Managing the race to perfection as the laps wound down, the Husqvarna rider took his third win to claim the overall victory in Israel.

Securing a maximum point haul, Billy now heads to the doubleheader finale in Germany with a sizeable 50-point lead.

“It’s been a great night, winning SuperPole and all three races,” Bolt said. “The track was tricky and it was risky to come off the main line, so it was a matter of trying to ride smart and minimise mistakes as much as possible. I didn’t have a great start to race one, but I was quick to position myself right and when I saw an opportunity, I made two sensible overtakes to get into the lead. In race two it was a similar situation, so I knew to stay relaxed and let the race come to me. I focused a lot on getting the holeshot in race three and was happy to pull that off. After some fast opening laps, I’d built a strong lead and was able to control it to the finish. Overall, it’s been a perfect night by claiming maximum championship points. I’m looking forward to getting to the doubleheader final round in Germany in two weeks.”

The FIM SuperEnduro World Championship concludes in Riesa, Germany with rounds four and five on March 19/20.
