Enduro GP Sweden. Honda Racing World Enduro Team moved from Finland to Sweden. Round four of the FIM EnduroGP World Championship took place in Skovde, Sweden, a great setting for the second leg of the Scandinavian tour. The competition was a 65 km route to be repeated three times per day: a total of 390 km through two Enduro Tests, one Extreme Test and Cross Test.

A weekend of great satisfaction for Honda Racing World Enduro Team, once again on the EnduroGP podium with an extraordinary Nathan Watson. The English rider put up a wonderful challenge against his countryman Holcombe, taking 2nd place in E2 on both race days. Thanks to these results, he finished 4th on Friday and 3rd on Saturday in the challenge of the EnduroGP. Penalized by a ground, not in line with his riding style, Thomas Oldrati finished 9th and 5th in E1. Race was influenced by a bad crash for Manolo Morettini, who goes back home with an injured shoulder.

“Tough weekend. The special tests were not really aligned with my riding style. Even though I didn’t finish on the podium, I tried to push in both the days”.

“I started off quite well, but I crashed in the Enduro Test hurting my left shoulder. I tried to restart, but the pain was strong and I preferred to stop in order to be able to race at the next round of the Italian Championship”.
