Emmanuel Albepart Wins Tr̬fle Loz̩rien AMV Day Two

Posted:

Frenchman Emmanuel Albepart took the win on day two after day one winner Marc Bourgeois crashed out.
The Tr̬fle Loz̩rien AMV delivered more dramatic action at the third stop of the World Enduro Super Series as day one winner Marc Bourgeois crashed out, allowing compatriot Emmanuel Albepart to charge to victory.

After Bourgeois pushed through for the win on the opening day of racing, his luck turned sour on the second day‰Ûªs second special test. Albepart took control of the proceedings and provisionally leads the overall standings heading into the third and final day of racing.

Feeling at home during the morning‰Ûªs slippery conditions, Bourgeois set the fastest time in the opening special test ahead of Albepart by just nine thousandths of a second, with top Junior talent Theo Espinasse a further one-second back in third. But the standings were turned on their head following test two when Bourgeois exited the race with an injured leg. Grabbing a test win, Espinasse brought the fight to Albepart who placed third fastest.


Back in charge for test three, Albepart pulled a gap on his young rival but Espinasse was not to be outdone and retaliated by levelling the scores in test four. Entering the fifth and final special test of the day it was all to play for between the duo. Despite another attack from the Sherco rider, Albepart had enough in hand to secure the day‰Ûªs overall win and provisionally take control of the race lead heading into Sunday‰Ûªs third and final day of racing.
Junior rider Theo Espinasse was second on Day 2.
‰ÛÏI‰Ûªm really happy with how things are going so far," Albepart said. "As a Junior rider to be pushing for the overall victory is incredible for me. Day two was strong. I had a good feeling with the bike and didn‰Ûªt make many mistakes, which was key. I‰Ûªm looking forward to tomorrow because the top riders start last and so there will be a better racing line. I‰Ûªll try to give it my best and win.‰Û
Hundreds of racers contested Day two in the French country side.
