Australia's Andy Wilksch experiences tough debut to world championship EnduroGP racing
The final stop for the 2017 EnduroGP season in Zschopau, Germany served as the end-of-season goal for the Australian Motul Pirelli Sherco Team. With the Australian off-road racing season over Andy Wilksch jetted to Germany to race his first world championship EnduroGP supported by his Motul Pirelli Sherco team mates from Australia.
Wilksch lined up to race the Enduro Junior Class for riders under 23 years on a Sherco 300 SEF-R supplied by the CH Racing Team. Fellow Aussie and lead rider for the CH Racing Team, Matthew Phillips, helped guide Wilksch into the toughest EnduroGP of the year.
Extremely technical special tests in a variety of brutal terrain challenged the young Australian over the two days of racing in stark contrast to typical racing conditions found in Australia.
