Jonny Walker Hopeful of Red Bull Hard Enduro Grand Slam

Posted:

KTM‰Ûªs Jonny Walker has his sights set on securing a perfect extreme enduro season at this weekend‰Ûªs Red Bull Sea to Sky event in Turkey.

Enjoying his best year of extreme enduro competition to date, Walker heads to the final event on the Red Bull Hard Enduro calendar undefeated in 2015. With wins at Hell‰Ûªs Gate, The Tough One, Red Bull Hare Scramble, Red Bull Romaniacs and most recently the Red Bull 111 Megawatt, Walker has consistently remained as the rider to beat throughout 2015.

Delivering a confident display of riding to secure a debut victory at the Megawatt race in Poland, Walker claimed victory by a comfortable two minutes. Now the KTM rider is gearing up to create a little piece of extreme enduro history.

If Walker can claim victory in Turkey ‰ÛÒ one of his favoured events ‰ÛÒ he will become the first rider to win all of the major extreme enduro events in one season and secure the Red Bull Hard Enduro Grand Slam.

‰ÛÏIf I‰Ûªm honest, I‰Ûªm a little excited for this year‰Ûªs Red Bull Sea to Sky." Walker said. "It‰Ûªs always one of my favourite races of the year ‰ÛÒ the terrain is awesome. It‰Ûªs got everything ‰ÛÒ sand, forestry and of course a really big mountain.

"It‰Ûªs a tough race but a lot of fun to ride.

"This year my season has been great ‰ÛÒ it‰Ûªs gone better than I could have hoped for. I never expected to be in this position of aiming for a perfect season. But I‰Ûªm trying not to let the talk of winning the Red Bull Hard Enduro Grand Slam get to me.

"I‰Ûªm just treating it like every other race on the calendar. Personally, I feel like I‰Ûªve got something to prove in Turkey. I had a great run there in 2013 when I won every part of the race but then last year I finished second to Graham Jarvis.

"I want my Sea to Sky crown back so that‰Ûªs what is motivating me to succeed in Turkey. I want to end my extreme enduro season on the top step of the podium.‰Û
