Josep Garcia claims double class win at GP of Italy & tops Enduro 2 World Championship

Comunicato Stampa disponibile solo in lingua originale. 

Establishing himself as the rider to beat during the first day’s competition, Josep surprised even himself with his speed. Faced with less than perfect preparation he nevertheless battled his way to the top of the E2 class results to claim a well-deserved win over Jamie McCanney and Pascal Rauchenecker. Day two saw Josep lead at the end of the first of three laps, before a costly mistake on the extreme test dropped him to second. Giving his all during the closing lap he worked his way back into the lead to claim victory. With it he moves to the top of the #enduro2 World Championship standings. 

Garcia“I’m very, very pleased with my results here in Italy. I was sick before the GP, so I had to delay my arrival at the race. That wasn’t the perfect way to prepare for the event so I really didn't know what to expect going into day one. But things went great. To win again after my first victory at the GP of Spain was more than I expected. Then I made a really positive start to day two and managed to open up a small advantage at the top of the results. But I made a mistake in the second extreme test and lost 15 seconds. That made things very close between myself and Jamie McCanney. Thankfully, I managed to get the win again and complete a perfect GP. Things have gone much, much better than I expected so far this year. I always saw this year as a learning season – my first year out of the junior class – but to be winning is amazing. With many GPs ahead of us I know things can change but I want to stay focused on training hard and continue to do all I can to fight for the #enduro2 title.”
