BARRAGAN REIGNS SUPREME IN SPANISH MUD
Jonathan Barragan continues to deliver the punches in this year’s Spanish Enduro Championship with the Gas Gas rider claiming a double win at Santiago
With heavy raining greeting round three in Santiago de Compostela, the weekend’s racing was one serious mud fest.
But continuing to prove that he’s more than settled with Gas Gas, Barragan led the way both days to secure the overall win while also topping the Enduro 3 class.
On day one it was Beta’s Oriol Mena who held an early lead. But Barragan found his groove on the slippery surface during the latter half of the day and powered past Mena to claim the win.
With Mena second, it was Diogo Ventura – teammate to Barragan – who claimed third.
Day two proved slightly drier as the rain gave way to sun. Building in confidence, Barragan came out swinging and led everyone home to take his third win in a row.
Mena again was the closest challenger to the flying Gas Gas rider but ultimately had to settle for second. Third this time went to Husqvarna’s Jaume Betriu.
Laia Sanz made her first competitive outing with KTM and was seventh in E2 and 24th overall.
The Spanish Enduro Championship continues in Almeria on May 30/31.
