Preview: European Enduro Championship round 2 in Slovakia – Juniors setting the pace
The second round of the 2019 European Enduro Championship hits Brezno in Slovakia this weekend, May 18-19 – stay tuned to live-timing.
After the muddy opening European Enduro Championship round in Portugal, the Czech rider Kirstof Kouble showed he’s the one to watch in 2019 taking his class win and with the overall podium top step.
Kouble won by a clear margin on the second day in Portugal and now leads the championship, and Junior 2/3 class, ahead of Albin Elowson and Eemil Pohjola – who sit drawn on points after trading podium places over the two wet days.
In the Juniors U21 class the Swede Max Ahlin showed he is fast on his Sherco 125 SE-R. The 17-year-old rider won his class both days in Portugal and managed a 4-7 scorecard overall.
Thomas Hostinsky will also be a rider to watch at this round. Racing at home always plays good for riders and the current 250 two stroke class leader will want to get a good result in front of his crowd.
Hanna Berzelius, Martina Reimander and Zuzana Novackova will pick up where they left off in the Women's class swopping podium places over the two days.
All riders will surely be hoping for better weather conditions in Slovakia!
