for the first time, young Billy makes his debut on the most famous of Extreme events this week. Having started the season well and quickly adapting to Hard Enduro it was decided that we should step things up and go large !! and events don’t get any bigger than Red Bull’s Erzberg.
Billy always ready for new challenges and never daunted by any event lines up on Friday morning among 1500 hopefuls to try and qualify for Sundays main Hare Scramble Extreme race . The top 500 fastest competitors will face the Iron Giant on Sunday which normally see’s between 5 and 20 finishers !! Only the elite and very best can conquer this beast of a coarse.

The race will be screened live on Red Bull TV from 12.00 noon CET Billy; “ Wow is what I can say , we arrived on Monday in the dark but waking up the next morning under the view of the Iron Giant is something impressive and breathtaking , I am walking as much of the coarse as possible and what I have seen so far looks awesome , this is my type of event , big rocks and more rocks with some awesome fast sections , I can’t wait for Sunday ” Julian Stevens: “ Initially we had not planned to enter Erzberg in Billy’s first season , but as he has progressed quicker than expected we decided to give it a shot, I feel he is more than ready for it and hopefully he will make a solid result. But the most important thing is experience at international level and to know this event for future editions. “
