Remes and Monni Take Podiums in Sweden

The small town of Enkoping in Sweden hosted, as it did in 2014, the fifth round of the Enduro World Championship for 2016.

Our riders, Eero Remes (E1) and Manuel Monni (E3), managed to get on the podium in their respective classes and also in the prestigious Enduro GP.

Eero Remes came on to the Swedish soil with gold front plate that establishes leadership in the Enduro GP, and, throughout the days of competition he fought to keep it still attached to his TM 250Fi ENes machine. Our Finnish rider ended day one of the competition, Saturday, winning his class and taking the third place in the GP Enduro, even in the tiring conditions made so difficult with the heavy rains. On Day 2, for the first time in this season, Eero does not win a race day but finishes in second place, some small falls costing him valuable time.

A good performance also for Manuel Monni, on the second day of competition he has risen onto the third step of the podium in the E3 class, after a day of competition where he fights with all his might and impresses on the Cross Test.

In the Junior class, Oliver Nelson, failed to give his best, still struggling with the after-effects of recent injury where he fractured a bone, Oliver collected a ninth and a sixth place in class.

The World Enduro circus will travel in July first to Spain, near Bilbao, before moving to Italy, in Fabriano, for the penultimate round.

"I am not very happy about this race weekend, Yesterday I won the E1 class and climbed the podium in Enduro GP, but today for the first time I finished second in E1. On Day 2 I fell a few times losing several seconds and in one of my falls in the Enduro Test I knocked of the chain. We will make better the next race in Spain."

"Yesterday unfortunately I did not have the pace of the three top riders that have started immediately so strong, on the second lap I had a small problem with the bike and I arrived too late at the time control taking four minutes penalty, losing fourth place. But today went much better even though I was very tired physically, but I started determined and from since the first Special I decided I must get a good result. "

"Not a good weekend, I am still recovering from an injury from the previous GP in Finland, here in Enkoping I suffered a lot. On both days of the race I was able to make some point and this is important to the end of the championship."
