The penultimate round of the 2023 FIM EnduroGP World Championship got underway with the AKRAPOVIC Super Test taking centre stage on Friday evening in Valpacos, Portugal.

Josep Garcia laid down a supremely fast time to top the classification. CH Racing Sherco’s Zach Pichon was just over half a second behind the Spaniard in second, with Italian Andrea Verona third quickest.

Under the floodlights, the Spaniard mastered the fast course best and stopped the clock with the quickest time. Clearly back on top form following his injury from round five, the KTM rider is hungry to keep that momentum rolling tomorrow and Sunday.

Frenchman Zach Pichon was next best on his Sherco. Unafraid to let it all hang out, he came within half a second of beating Garcia.

With the top two finishing on the same second, it was Italy’s Andrea Verona and Samuele Bernardini in third and fourth respectively. The duo were split by less than two-tenths of a second, proving just how tight the competition is in Valpacos.

Brad Freeman quickly showed exactly where his pace is this weekend by placing fifth. The Brit who crashed out of round five in Slovakia had been quiet during the summer break but looks to be back firing on all cylinders as he continues his fight for the EnduroGP title.
