Steve Holcombe who found himself down in 6th position at the end of the first lap, pulled the pin and went on to set the fastest times in tests 6, 7, 8, 9, 10 and 12! And take his first 'scratch' success of 2018. Only a very strong and determind Alex Salvini was able to worry the Brit, he kept up the pace and took to the EnduroGP podium, just behind an impressive Jamie McCanney. After his disappointments of Day 1, where he took a 7 minute penalty, Christophe Charlier showed he can never be counted out! He was 6th, while Brad Freeman and Antoine Basset completed the TOP 10 along with an excellent Luis Oliveire! Meanwhile, Australian Matthew Phillips finished just outside the Top 10 (11th).
Jamie McCanney had no rivals to match up to his impressive form in E1, even if his compatriot Brad Freeman was also very strong (2nd), ahead of Antoine Basset. The Gas Gas rider took his first podium in three years, despite coming under attack from Spain's Victor Guerrero and Finland's Eemil Phojola.
"The day was long... very long! Finishing 2nd in EnduroGP is great... especially since my main rivals used soft tyres, unlike me," McCanney said. "My Yamaha worked perfectly in these extreme conditions and I want to thank all the Yamaha Outsiders Team for their excellent work.‰Û
