Beta factory rider Steve Holcombe has claimed a strong runner-up EnduroGP class result at round five of the 2018 EnduroGP World Championship ‰ÛÒ The Wall in Trentino, Italy.
Comfortably winning the Enduro 3 class, with three rounds of the series remaining Holcombe holds firm in second in the overall EnduroGP standings, eight points behind class leader Alex Salvini and 20 points ahead of third placed Eero Remes.
A very different kind of EnduroGP event, The Wall featured three short motocross races, four enduro special tests and four extreme special tests.
Crashing in the first motocross race, the defending champion lost precious time before performing well in the second and third races. Bringing himself back into contention for the overall event win with four winning rides in each of the enduro tests, Holcombe then also topped the opening extreme test. Frustratingly, mistakes on his second and third runs through the extreme test prevented Steve from challenging for the win, claiming a well-deserved overall runner-up result.
