Competing in his first ever SuperEnduro championship last year, Haaker won the title with a last-lap pass for the win in the final moto of the last race of the series. Coming into the 2017 series as defending champion and having recently also secured the AMA EnduroCross title, Haaker placed a strong second overall at round one in Poland before enjoying a perfect night at round two in Germany with three final wins. At round three in Spain he finished third overall before wrapping up the title with a close third place result in France.
‰ÛÏIt‰Ûªs great to win the SuperEnduro title again," Haaker said. "It‰Ûªs been a very different championship to last year, as I felt like I started this series as favourite to win. I came out strong at the first two rounds, and managed to open up a little gap at the top of the points.
"I think Jonny and Alfredo worked really hard during the break after the first two rounds, but tonight I felt like things were pretty even between us all. Defending the SuperEnduro title was definitely something different, and quite possibly harder to do, but I‰Ûªm just stoked to win the championship. I felt like I rode well tonight, but at the same time I knew the title was on the line. I‰Ûªm stoked to have get two SuperEnduro titles in a row.‰Û
