Brit Graham Jarvis has secured yet another extreme enduro victory, this time topping the 2020 edition of Sea to Sky.

Delivering a winning performance on the final day‰Ûªs Mountain Race, Jarvis notched up his sixth victory at the Turkish event. Graham‰Ûªs Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing teammate Billy Bolt dominated the event‰Ûªs first three races, but a navigational error on the final day relegated him to third overall.

As always at Sea to Sky, Jarvis made a solid, but cautious start to the event. Claiming an impressive fifth in the hectic Beach Race, the 45-year-old then began to put on the pressure in the Forest Race, taking third and staying within touch of race leader Bolt. Despite a heavy impact with a rock damaging his bike, Graham was able to skilfully bring his Husqvarna TE 300i home in fourth on the technically demanding Sky Race.

Going into Saturday‰Ûªs Mountain Race, Graham was lying third overall, a minute down on second place and close to four minutes down on his teammate Bolt in first. In typical Jarvis style, the Brit kept his nerve and maintained a strong pace throughout the 55-kilometre course. Making no mistakes, the extreme enduro expert crested the final hill in first place and with enough of an advantage over his rivals to claim the overall win.

‰ÛÏIt was a great race today and I was lucky if I‰Ûªm honest, especially after damaging the bike earlier in the event," Jarvis said. "I went into the Mountain Race about four minutes down on Billy and as all the top guys ended up riding together, I thought there was no chance for me today. Billy took a wrong turn and I managed to get out in front and for that last 20 minutes I just pushed as hard as I could to the finish. It feels nice to get another win here in Turkey, it really is an amazing event.‰Û
