Five podiums for Honda Racing Team in the fourth round of the Italian Championship. The fourth round of the Enduro Italian Championship in Città della Pieve (PE) with a 50 km course to be repeated four times. Three special tests: Cross Test of 4 km, Extreme Test of 1.2 km, and Enduro Test of 6 km, plus the SuperTest held late Saturday afternoon.

Once again, Thomas Oldrati (Honda-RedMoto CRF 250RX Enduro) ruled the 250 4-stroke class setting the best time in 7 out of 12 special tests. He was among the best of the Overall with P6 very close to the top 5. After five victories in a row, Manolo Morettini (Honda-RedMoto CRF 250RX Enduro) missed out on another triumph in the Junior category. With the second position, however, he is still the leader of the standings. Nathan Watson (Honda-RedMoto CRF 450RX Enduro) took the 3rd step of the podium in the foreign rankings. Thanks to a near-perfect performance, he battled for the victory and the top 3 of the Overall.
