Spain‰Ûªs Josep Garcia has set the pace at round six of the World Enduro Super Series to secure the Fast Eddy Sprint Enduro win at the Hawkstone Park Cross-Country in Great Britain.
Putting in a world-class performance, Garcia stamped his authority on Saturday‰Ûªs Sprint Enduro to secure a 35-second margin of victory over Brit Nathan Watson. Ensuring two British riders claimed podium results, Billy Bolt edged out Spaniard Jaume Betriu by two seconds for third overall.
Just two weeks after round five in Poland, Great Britain‰Ûªs iconic Motocross circuit Hawkstone Park opened its gates for the sixth stop of WESS. Staged over two days, Saturday‰Ûªs opening day of racing saw the 650 competitors entered stretch their race-legs on the sandy Motocross track and surrounding woodland for some fast and furious Sprint Enduro racing. With event organisers Fast Eddy Racing laying out two spectacular special tests - Motocross and Enduro - riders competed against the clock for a qualifying place in Sunday‰Ûªs Original Fast Eddy Cross-Country.
Eager to show his speed, Garcia wasted no time in getting down to business. Immediately setting the bar high on the Enduro test, he blasted his way to an early 12-second lead over Bolt at the end of the opening test. Continuing his impressive pace, he controlled a lead of almost 29 seconds at the end of the third and final Enduro test over an improving Watson.
