Jonny Walker Seals Victory At The Tough One

Posted:

Red Bull KTM‰Ûªs Jonny Walker delivered a great ride at The Tough One Hard Enduro at Britain‰Ûªs Nantmawr Quarry to finish the 13 laps of the demanding and uncharacteristically dry track and cross the line in front and two minutes ahead of rival Graham Jarvis.

Jonny Walker was fast on his feet as well as on his KTM 300 EXC factory machine to be first on this bike in the Le Mans style start and immediately started to work on putting distance between himself and the legendary Jarvis.

He did make a small mistake towards the end of the opening lap but managed to hold onto the lead and worked hard at maintaining it throughout the race. Then in the final stages he had enough in the bag to hold off a late charge by Jarvis and take the win.

Walker took the win, with Jarvis in second and Alfredo Gomez completed the podium. KTM factory rider Andreas Lettenbichler finished fourth and KTM rider Mario Roman completed the top five. Austria‰Ûªs Lars En̦ckl brought his KTM home in sixth place to give KTM four of the top six places.

‰ÛÏMy fitness was good, so the biggest challenge was getting to 100% during the first few laps." runner up Jarvis stated. "I didn‰Ûªt really make any mistakes.

"My biggest problem was those first three or four laps where I struggled for a bit of pace with arm pump. Once I got my lines right and managed to start pushing I had a good pace and kept a similar speed to Jonny.

"The only disappointing thing was this first few laps really.‰Û
