King Off The Jungle 2017 Amid the rocks and mountains of Poços de Caldas, the “King off the Jungle”, which happened on June 24 and 25, 2017, made the Brazilian Hard Enduro Championship warm up.
It was two days of Hard Enduro in breathtaking landscapes. The riders accelerated a lot and made the obstacles seem easy. On the first day, the pilots left Pedra Balão, a famous tourist spot in the city, for a timed contest in a quick stretch to set the start of the second day. On this day, KTM riders Bruno Crivillin and Patrik Capila made the best times in the Gold and Silver category, respectively.
On the second day, the scene was a quarry, and the pilots dropped off the obstacles of a disabled machine and headed for a stretch of forest. The biggest challenge was the epilogue, with lots of stones, tires, logs, and on arrival a splash. The audience was able to vibrate with the arrival of each rider and the disputes for the podium.
At that stage, the race was hot, and Rigor Rico, a Sherco Brazil team rider, won the Gold category. Secondly, Bruno Crivillin. And third, Ripi Galileo. The pilot Jordi Picola, who leads the championship in the Trial category, secured his second consecutive victory. Patrik Capila, KTM driver, maintained his performance and was confirmed as first place in the Silver category. Second, Romulo Bottrel, and third, Ronald Santi. The epilogue of the Bronze category was sensational and the riders got over it. A chilling dispute. The rider Lucas Rocha confirmed his favouritism and took home the trophy for first place. Second, Francis Feliciano, and third, Tirso Franco. In the
