Continuing to cement himself as the rider to beat in the FIM SuperEnduro World Championship Billy Bolt has delivered a winning ride at the penultimate round of the series, in Budapest.
Securing two wins from three starts to take the win ahead of Jonny Walker and Taddy Blazusiak, the Brit extended his lead in the series‰Ûª overall standings with one round remaining.
However, it wasn‰Ûªt plain sailing for Bolt, and the first race of the evening certainly didn‰Ûªt go to plan as several mistakes, including a huge over-the-bars crash, saw him fail to keep pace with Blazusiak and Walker. In fact, Walker impressively dominated the race with his smooth and precise style, gapping the field and leaving Blazusiak to settle for second. Remarkably, Bolt held on to third despite the difficulties, taking important points.
As Race 2 rolled around, Bolt wasn‰Ûªt going to take any chances. Even after a less than perfect start due to the ‰Û÷reverse grid‰Ûª format, Bolt was at the front in a flash. Taddy Blazusiak also suffered a bad start, but as the Pole was also struggling with the bike set-up he found it difficult to make up positions, although a late charge saw him take a hard fought 3rd. Bolt, edging ever further in front of his rivals, won the second race of the night ahead of Walker, Blazusiak and Pol Tarres, who took a great fourth.
