Remes and Monni on Podium at EWC Italy.  (Jul 18, 2016)

Last weekend was witness to the Enduro GP of Italy, held in Fabriano in the Marche region. This was the seventh round of the 2016 Enduro World Championship.

After the unlucky Iberian trip for Eero Remes, in Italy we are back to our best, the defending champion of the E1 class has resumed his march. Going on to win in both days of competition, outpacing his direct rivals, Eero takes the top step two more times this season. Also, in the Enduro GP combined cc class, Eero Remes he scored a fifth and a second place taking another podium. Another great result for Eero and the TM Racing 250Fi ENes.

A positive race for Manuel Monni in the E3 class on his TM 300 EN, in Italy he has taken another step towards strengthening his championship fight for third place in the provisional E3 standings. Finishing with a second and a third place over the two days of competition, Manuel takes to the podium twice.

A positive weekend for Oliver Nelson, the Junior class rider, has raced a good second day in the competition, especially in the first two Extreme Test and sets some great times in his class.

So, with the GP of Fabriano concluded, our riders and the entire Enduro Circus will take over a month of vacation time now before heading to France for the last GP of the season.

"I am happy with the results in this race weekend in Italy, especially for the ranking in the E1 class where I increased my gap on my rivals. In the two days of competition I have not been very fast in the Cross Test and Extreme Test but I managed to recover the Enduro Test where there was a difference to be made."

"Yesterday a positive day with the second-place finish in the E3, I had a good pace in the Enduro Test and the Cross Test. Today I repeat myself but I could not find the right rhythm in the first two Enduro Test and at the end I have finished third. I am still happy because I am now in third place in the provisional standings of E3."

"Honestly, I can not explain why I have such a good feeling with the bike, but then the times do not show this always in the special tests. Now we have a month off and I will work hard to get back to my level."
