EnduroGP Aubert and SALVINI must react …


    Youth in power! ” That is the watchword of this season. After two Grand Prix, category EnduroGP is dominated by three drivers under 26 years: Matthew Phillips (AUS) , Mathias BELLINO (F – Husqvarna) and Steve HOLCOMBE (GB – Beta) . If the Australian appears in top form, he will have to pay close attention to the rise of HOLCOMBE which appears to have a very large room for improvement. Struggling in the mud Gouveia (Portugal), BELLINO remains very sharp and try to take the plate of leader he was cornered in Morocco. Behind this trio if Eero Remes (SF – TM) remains threatening, his inconstancy does not allow it to be a serious candidate for the title.Same story for thirty Alex SALVINI (I – Beta) and Johnny AUBERT (F – Beta) … If the French hung a strong second place in Agadir, later was not so easy and an elbow injury in Portugal the prevented him from coming to fight at the front. As for SALVINI , it is always placed (5/5/6/6), it fails to find the big pace to be able to claim his first podium of the season. For their part, the Rookies Taylor ROBERT ( USA – KTM) and Nathan Watson (GB – KTM) will continue their learning discipline while trying to play again disorders parties of the category. Currently 7th in the interim, Antoine BASSET (F – KTM) will want to confirm excellent results of the early season as Gianluca Martini (I – Kawasaki) and Jaume Betriu (ESP – KTM) while Loïc Larrieu (F – Yamaha) , Cristobal GUERRERO (E – Yamaha) , Jamie McCanney (GB – Yamaha) and MONNI Manuel (I – TM)will move up a gear to not be too distanced before the Scandinavian tour … We also expect a return to the forefront of Ivan CERVANTES ( E -KTM) who has not scored points in the ranking EnduroGP but alsoLuis Correia (P – Beta) , Danny McCanney (GB – Husqvarna) or even Jonathan BARRAGAN (E – Gas Gas) …

    Junior, it will have to Diogo Ventura (P – Gas Gas) , Kirian Mirabet (E) , Josep GARCIA (E – Husqvarna) and Albin ELOWSON (S – Husqvarna) raise their level if they are to stay in the race for title. Indeed, this early season is totally under the control of one man: Giacomo REDONDI (I – Honda) ! Transalpine is still unbeaten and nobody really seemed able to come to worry … Worse, his nearest rival, VENTURA , already 24 points behind! In addition to these five drivers, we will be happy to see the Finn Henric Stigell (TM) , currently sixth, or Oliver Nelson (S – TM) , Mika BARNES (FIN – KTM) and French David ABGRALL (Yamaha) andAnthony GESLIN (Yamaha) … Conversely, many more are expected Davide SORECA (I – Honda) , billed as a potential favorite for the title early in the season, and somewhat disappointing … note the absence of Jeremy CARPENTIER (F – Honda) , not enough given his leg injury incurred in Portugal.

    Finally, FIM Youth Cup 125cc, this Grand Prix Maxxis Greece should offer us a new intense battle between headliners such as Jean-Baptiste NICOLOT (F – Yamaha) , current leader of the class, Valerian DEBAUD (F – Yamaha) , Erik Appelqvist (S – Yamaha)and Lee SEALEY (GB – Yamaha) . In addition, Jack EDMONDSON (GB – KTM) will indeed be back in business, enough to give us two days of intense racing with these five potential winners. By cons, we expected much hope Italian Mirko Spandre (KTM) and you will enjoy discovering the Chilean Ruy Barbosa (Husqvarna) …

    This Grand Prix Maxxis Greece will therefore offer an authentic setting to stars of EnduroGP . No doubt thousands of Greek fans agglutineront on different special to encourage the elite of the World Enduro to make this 3rd stage of the season a big party …
