Jess Gardiner Back To Her Winnings Ways At European Opener

Posted:

Australian off road racer, Jess Gardiner, made every post a winner at the opening rounds of the FIM European Euduro Championship at Gouveia in Portugal, which saw claim victory on both days of the championship opener, double header weekend.

While it was Gardiner‰Ûªs first ever race in the European Championship, she was no stranger to Gouveia as she had raced there with some success in 2015 at the Women‰Ûªs World Enduro Championship.

The opening day of competition on Saturday saw the event being raced on a long enduro test, which was approximately 11minutes long as well as a nine minute cross test.

Gardiner was simply on fire as she proved too good for her rivals and dominated the day with her fast pace. The 24-year-old won every single test and took the overall win with a total time of 1h00:15.78, over three minutes clear of her nearest competitor.

It was far from easy as rain passed through the venue throughout the day and although not enough to make it muddy, vision was undoubtedly hampered.

But that was only a taste of things to come as Sunday bought more rain and while the dirt was in near perfect shape for racing, crossing rocks, logs and other bits of mother nature became slippery and more challenging.

This proved no obstacle for Gardiner as she again handed her rivals a riding clinic, taking the win by over a minute and the perfect start to the European Championship.

‰ÛÏThe weekend went perfectly to plan,‰Û
