Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing‰Ûªs Graham Jarvis is the clear and decisive winner of the 13th edition of Red Bull Romaniacs, securing a record breaking fifth career victory in the world‰Ûªs toughest Hard Enduro Rally.
Red Bull KTM factory rider Alfredo Gomez of Spain wrapped up a tough four-day Red Bull Romaniacs in overall second, finishing behind British veteran Jarvis. Wade Young of South Africa completed the Gold Class podium.
Determined to build on his dominating performance in last month‰Ûªs Erzberg Hare Scramble, Jarvis began the event with only victory on his mind. Getting off to a great start, the Husqvarna rider ended the Sibiu City Prologue in third position.
However, his third position saw him lead the field of 470 riders at the start of the opening day. Unable to find his rhythm early on, he was uncharacteristically off the pace as his closest rivals hunted him down. Ending the opening day in fourth and 10 minutes behind race leader Alfredo Gomez, Jarvis went on the attack on day two.
