“On Sunday I’ve always been close to Meo: I lost only a little bit in the extreme test because I struggle. I played the victory with him only because of this tough special test. Too bad, because I had much more feeling then Saturday. The last part of the race has been really difficult, because of the rain, that changed the characteristics of the ground. Anyway I’m happy because I played until the last with Meo”.

“That’s the way. I started the race not so good and I could not be constant. Finally my positions are good, even if I could do better both on Saturday and Sunday, because I could fight for the podium”.

“Battig race a pretty erratic Grand Prix, because he was not able to face in the best way some special test. Anyway he made good times. Let's say his biggest problem is the constancy: he has to work harder in order to achieve better results and go up on the podium again ”.

“ Exciting weekend in Belgium, great location where we met many fans and collected the benefits of the tests and the developments made with the bike in recent weeks. Salvini started good both on Saturday and on Sunday. He has suffered a bit the extreme test: he lost only a few seconds, but at the end these were decisive for the standing. On Sunday we hoped to conquer the victory and we finished so close, because Alex was very fast and aggressive. Good race for Alessandro Battig too, always in the top five. Too bad because there were good chances to go on the podium. Positive experience for the American Cris Back, who had the chance to race for the first race in the Enduro World Championship thanks to 's support. The company is demonstrating its commitment in the enduro, with the desire to strengthen international relations and grow up even more Honda brand in the off-road world ”.
