NATHAN WATSON has took the win for the first race of the 2016 Italian Championship 2016, in Lignano Sabbiadoro.

Watson has shown he’s more than up for the challenge by claiming victory in his first enduro.

Honda rider Guarneri was the fastest throughout the morning and half of day one, but unluckily some mistakes during the night time special put him down to second place.

Third on the day was Matt Phillips delivering a good start to his new chapter with Sherco.

Round one closes out with day two, Sunday February 14, where the riders look to keep the established elite on their toes.

The best riders in the extreme, and winner of the X-Cup Maxxis-Honda Redmoto, was Manuel Monni with Giacomo Redondo and another rider Husqvarna’s Pascal Rauchenecker.
