The final round of the Paulo Duarte FIM EnduroGP World Championship got underway in style with the all-action AKRAPOVIC Super Test in Santiago do Cacem.

Under floodlights, competitors went head-to-head for the last time this season.

Entering the seventh and final AKRAPOVIC Super Test with a healthy points lead, Brad Freeman knew a victory wasn’t absolutely necessary to seal the deal in the overall standings, but in true fighting spirit, he didn’t hold back.

An incredibly fast time by Freeman saw him stop the clock fourth tenths of a second quicker than his rivals to take the win and overall honours.

“It’s great to take the overall win with a victory tonight in Portugal,” Freeman said. “Normally I don’t do too well in the Super Test, I tend to get nervous and tense and never quite set a good time. So to turn that around this year and come away with the overall victory along with taking three individual wins feels special.”

Andrea Verona was the only other rider to get close to Freeman. The Italian, who is battling an injury sustained last weekend at round six, was impressive for second.

Despite having a mathematical chance of stopping Freeman, Josep Garcia had no answer for Brad tonight and had to be content with the third fastest time.

The CH Racing Sherco duo of Hamish MacDonald and Zach Pichon rounded out the top five with fourth and fifth respectively.

In the Magnorange FIM Women’s Enduro Championship, it was Australia’s Jessica Gardiner who set the pace. The the multi Australian Champion and ISED winner blitzed the short course to beat Jane Daniels by two seconds. Rosie Rowett completed the top three.
