Wade Young took the overall win at Extreme XL Lagares 2017. Early on in the race the leader changed from Alfredeo Gomez over to Mario Roman until finally at the first riverbed section Wade Young took the Lead. He then carried onto lead the remainder of the race.
The terrain was constantly changing from wet and slippery to dry and dusty. However Wade Young still managed to loose no time and stay ahead of the other pro riders. His techniques and overall riding skills were immaculate!
Jonny Walker claimed second place as he worked his way up in rank past his competitors. Overall Jonny did extremely well considering this was his first time attending Extreme XL Lagares.
Alfredo Gomez did not make it to winning his hat-trick as thought after he took first place on both the prologue and the night time enduro-cross. However he took third place after having issues with his clutch and having to stop in the pits for a short while. In this time his competitors continued and Jonny Walker moved up to third place.
The race overall was definitely unpredictable and exiting to watch. The crowds were amazing and so supportive towards the riders creating an energetic and vibrant atmosphere.
