Larrieu and Garcia secure victory at Italian EnduroGP day 2

Posted:



Frenchman Loic Larrieu (Yamaha) has become the second rider to claim a first EnduroGP win of 2017 at the GP of Italy, claiming victory at the end of a long, hot and demanding second day of competition in Spoleto.

Just as Steve Holcombe (Beta) did on day one, Larrieu earned his first podium topping result of the year by heading the second day‰Ûªs result and placing 33 seconds ahead of his closest challenger ‰ÛÒ day one winner Holcombe. In the Enduro 2 class KTM‰Ûªs Josep Garcia completed a perfect GP, adding victory on day two to his winning result on day one to move to the top of the Enduro 2 championship standings. British rider Brad Freeman (Beta) comfortably topped the Enduro Junior class while Andrea Verona topped the results in the 125cc Enduro Youth category.

Removing the mistakes that prevented him challenging for the top step of the EnduroGP podium on day one, Loic Larrieu proved to be the rider to beat on day two in Spoleto.

Winning six of the day‰Ûªs 10 special tests he earned both his and Yamaha‰Ûªs first winning result in the premier EnduroGP class. ‰ÛÏIt was a very good day for me today,‰Û

Runner-up, but unable to match the pace of Larrieu, was day one winner Steve Holcombe. Fast and consistent throughout the day, Holcombe found himself battling with Christophe Nambotin (KTM) during the first half of the race, until Nambo‰Ûª lost time in the extreme test following a mistake. Nevertheless, Holcombe‰Ûªs runner-up result saw him extend his lead in the EnduroGP championship standings to 21 points.

‰ÛÏLarrieu was riding extremely well today, I wasn‰Ûªt comfortable pushing as hard as he was so I focused on securing the second place result. Getting more championship points was more important that taking big risks today,‰Û

Back in action after being forced out on day one with a technical issue Matt Phillips (Sherco) placed seventh with Jaume Betriu (KTM), Giacomo Redondi (Honda) and Deny Philippaerts (Beta) rounding out the top 10.

Josep Garcia (KTM) and Jamie McCanney (Yamaha) battled it out for the Enduro 2 class win on day two. Garcia was the first to establish a lead, which he threw away when he crashed on his second run threw the extreme test. For the remainder of the day Josep and Jamie pushed one another to the limit with the Spaniard eventually wining by just under seven seconds.

‰ÛÏI‰Ûªm very, very pleased with my results here in Italy,‰Û
