Double Podium Delight For Jamie McCanney In Italy

Posted:

Starting the weekend with a positive third place result in the short opening SuperTest, the WR250F powered rider was a force to be reckoned with during the first full day of racing.
Making light work of a tough round six of the 2018 FIM Enduro World Championship in Edolo, Italy, Jamie McCanney twice finished as runner-up in the highly-competitive Enduro 1 category at the GP of Italy.

Collecting valuable points, the Outsiders Yamaha Official Enduro Team rider remains second in the provisional Enduro 1 World Championship with two rounds to go.

Featuring challenging special tests in muddy and wet conditions, the GP of Italy was tough both physically and mentally for all competitors. Back to competitive fitness following his shoulder injury at the previous round of the series, Jamie McCanney entered the GP of Italy focused on collecting as many points as possible for the championship.

Starting the weekend with a positive third place result in the short opening SuperTest, the WR250F powered rider was a force to be reckoned with during the first full day of racing. Posting times inside the top-three in 11 out of 12 tests, McCanney secured the runner-up spot in the 250cc class.

On day two McCanney posted top-three times in all but two tests, to secure his second consecutive runner-up result in the Enduro 1 category. Despite being unable to score points at the GP of Trentino due to his shoulder injury, Jamie remains second in the provisional Enduro 1 World Championship standings. With two rounds still to be contested, he is now 24 points behind provisional leader Brad Freeman.
"We'll keep on building from here and the goal now is to come back even stronger at the French GP in late September," McCanney said.
"It was a hard GP and I'm satisfied with the results we got here in Italy," McCanney said. "Coming back from my shoulder injury made things even harder for me this weekend, but my speed was good - I was happy to find out that my pace was good on day one. I was challenging for the overall EnduroGP class podium all day long, before getting second in my class. The last three months I've been doing my best to get back my fitness and strength and this GP was tough on me both physically and mentally. Getting second again on day two in such a stacked field of riders is a good result. We'll keep on building from here and the goal now is to come back even stronger at the French GP in late September."

Jamie McCanney and the Outsiders Yamaha Official Enduro Team return to action in Methamis, France for the penultimate round of the 2018 Enduro World Championship on September 22/23.
