Matt Phillips Back On Top With Day Two Win In Finland
Kept from the top step of the EnduroGP podium on day one by Eero Remes (TM), on day two of the GP of Finland it was Matt Phillips who topped the results after the Tasmanian ace blasted his way to an eventual nine seconds winning advantage.
With little to separate Remes, Phillips and Nathan Watson (KTM) throughout the day, it was Phillips who best matched speed with consistency to earn his third outright day win of the championship so far.
In claiming the win PHILLIPS moves back to the top of the standings, tied on points with Remes. Third, but now a distant third following a bike issue during the second day, Steve Holcombe (Beta) sits six points ahead of Mathias Bellino (Husqvarna) with KTM duo of Nathan Watson and Taylor Robert fifth and sixth.
In the Enduro 1 class it was again Remes and Watson who dominated the proceedings. Separated by little throughout the day, with just seconds separating them on most special tests it was clear the rider who made the least mistakes would win. That rider was Remes.
With Watson wanting to claim his first day win of the series the young Brit pushed a little too, made one or two small but costly mistakes, and had to settle for second. For REMES a strong end to the day saw the TM star claim his eighth victory of the season.
