At the head of the field, the battles were intense in the Pro class as the race to become this year‰Ûªs Ultimate Enduro Champion took hold. From five qualifying heats, the 47-strong entry was whittled down into two semi-finals and a night ending seven-lap final.
Walker shot out to an early lead as Bolt, Cody Webb, Colton Haaker, Lettenbichler and Kevin Gallasz all gave chase.
By the mid-way point the fight for victory had become a three-way battle between Walker, Bolt and Haaker, with Walker holding station out front. But with one lap to go, drama struck as Haaker washed out in the water pit. Piling on the pressure, Bolt found a way past Walker when the KTM rider came unstuck in the greasy rock section. Remaining calm under pressure Bolt marched on for the win as Walker chased him home for second and Lettenbichler took advantage of Haaker‰Ûªs mistake for third.
