Gomez blitzes British riders for Romaniacs prologue win
Alfredo Gomez launched his quest for a first Red Bull Romaniacs title with a stirring prologue win around the punishing inner city course to the delight of the crowd in Sibiu, Romania.

The Spaniard navigated his way around the tricky Extreme Enduro course to finish in an amazing time of 17 minutes 53 seconds on his KTM EXC 300 bike, leaving four British riders in his Gold class wake.

The 27-year-old‰Ûªs 11 flying laps ensured he got first pick for the start of the four off-road days - the Madrid native choosing to go third when the action switches to the mountains.

Briton Jonny Walker managed to fend off three of his compatriots as he seeks a third consecutive title with four-time winner Graham Jarvis back in third, rookie Billy Bolt fourth and prologue master Paul Bolton fifth.

Bolt and Bolton thrilled the fans lining the streets early on with a spectacular display of Enduro riding, Walker and Jarvis‰Ûª experience telling late on to snatch the podium places behind Gomez.

Gomez said, ‰ÛÏI wasn‰Ûªt really fighting or competing against anyone, I was just riding. It‰Ûªs the prologue, I just concentrate on not falling!‰Û
