Second fastest to McCanney on the opening test, Garcia then won tests two and three. With victory almost his, another second fastest time on the penultimate test set things up for the 15th and final special test of the three-day race. With rain falling heavily, he kept things safe to cross the finish line as a first-time winner of TrÌ¬fle LozÌ©rien AMV and victor of round two of the World Enduro Super Series.
‰ÛÏTo get my first WESS victory of 2019, and also to create a little piece of history by being the first non-French winner here at TrÌ¬fle LozÌ©rien, is amazing," Garcia said. "The conditions really didn‰Ûªt suit me ‰ÛÒ I‰Ûªm not really a big fan of wet, slippery mud. But I pushed hard on all special tests and, well, everything went perfectly. Coming here straight from Extreme Lagares wasn‰Ûªt easy but I knew this race was going to be important to my WESS championship.‰Û
