Jonny Walker Tops The Podium In Argentina

Posted:



KTM's Jonny Walker took control of the Maxxis FIM SuperEnduro World Championship lead with the overall victory at the AMV Seguros GP of Argentina.

With round three marking the first visit to South America in Pinamar, Argentina, it was Walker who claimed the top step of the podium with two race wins and a second place. Behind Walker, Husqvarna's Colton Haaker (USA) continues to improve in the championship by securing the runner-up result, while a bad night for KTM's Cody Webb (USA) saw him end the night in third.

"It's almost a prefect night,‰Û

Claiming a start-to-finish victory, he then matched that result in race two. But a bad start in three left him playing catch up. Steadily working his way forward, the KTM rider ended the race in third to record his first overall victory of the series and with it take control of the championship.

Backing that up with another second in race three, despite a crash, Haaker then placed third in the final race to end his night as the runner-up. "I'm pleased, this runner-up result is definitely a step in the right direction,‰Û

Putting in a strong ride, KTM's Alfredo Gomez (S) ended his night fourth overall with his best result of third coming in race two. Starting the night strongly with fourth, KTM's Taylor Robert (USA) was another to suffer numerous ups and downs and with two fifth place results he left Argentina fifth overall. Producing one of the most impressive rides was 2015 Junior World Champion Ty Tremaine (USA-KTM). Claiming a career best third in race one, the young American completed the top six overall.

Round four of the Maxxis FIM SuperEnduro World Championship takes place in Belo Horizonte, Brazil on February 27.
