60-Second Update – EEC Romania Day 1
KTM’s Tom Sagar picked the outright victory on day one of the second round of the European Enduro Championship in Romania.
The first day of the second round of the Enduro European Championship (EEC) in Bacau, Romania was a battle against water and mud due to two days of non-stop rain non-stop. But at the same moment the first riders started, the rain stopped!
This offered a virtual home-advantage for the British riders. Tom Sagar won six of seven tests in the overall in front of Maurizio Micheluz. The Italian is the reigning champion with his Suzuki – and was in front of the next British rider Jamie Lewis.
Micheluz won his E1 class in front of Husqvarna rider Jack Rowland and Swiss Jonathan Rosse.
As a winner overall Sagar also won his E2 class and placed more than one minute in front of his compatriot Lewis with Sweden’s Martin Sundin third.
In the E3 class the strong Italian rider Jacopo Cerutti took the lead from French Jagu Julien and German Marco Neubert.
Reigning Veterans champion Werner Müller from Austria won with more than one minute clear of Frenchman Laurent Pannetier.
In the Women category Audrey Rossat took her third victory in a row.
