Mathias Bellino Claims E3 Win As Phillips Overcomes 40 Second Penalty

Posted:

Australia's Matthew Phillips worked his way back to an impressive third place result at the 7th round of the MAXXIS world enduro championship held in Greece after incuring a penalty heading into the days event.

The E3 class once again provided the closest racing results of the three senior championship classes with where Mathis Bellino (F - Husqvarna) claimed the win thanks largely to his consistency, and the time penalty picked up by Phillips following the Super Test.

Without winning any of the day‰Ûªs tests Bellino rode smart to secure his fourth victory of the season ahead of TM‰Ûªs Aigar Leok (EST). The Estonian shone in the motocross test in Serres to climb to the second spot of the podium for the second time this year.

One of the most impressive performances came from Phillips. Unable to finish yesterday‰Ûªs KTM super test, the Australian started the day with a penalty of 40 seconds. The defending champion fought hard all day, recording the day‰Ûªs fastest E3 class time, and ending up third to salvage precious championship points.

Finishing less than two seconds behind Phillips, Portugal‰Ûªs Luis Corriea (Beta) was once more just shy of the podium in fourth with Italy‰Ûªs Thomas Oldrati fifth.

Failing to secure the top spot on the podium during the opening three rounds of the 2015 EWC series, Pela Renet (F) finally got his first win in Greece.

Coming at the halfway point of the series, Renet‰Ûªs result prove that the battle for the 2015 Enduro 2 World Championship is anything but over. Despite a mistake in his final run through the extreme test the defending E2 champion managed to stay ahead of championship leader Antoine Meo (F-KTM) by a just under ten seconds.

‰ÛÏIt‰Ûªs great to get a win again, it‰Ûªs been too long since the last one,‰Û
