DAILY DIARY – RED BULL 111 MEGAWATT, PROLOGUE
Welcome to Red Bull 111 Megawatt. The prologue is in the books, here’s a flavour of what happened…
Despite nursing a recently broken foot and a bad knee, Giacomo Redondi still brought his Beta home in third. He likes the sand too so if he can go the distance on Sunday he won’t be far off.
More at home to the rocks than sand, Graham Jarvis openly admits this event may not be to his liking. But Jarvis is always a fighter and if when there’s a will, Grimbo will find a way!
Russian David Leonov looked smooth and silky today. He was sixth fastest.
As the soft sand was quickly eaten away from in front of those steel pipes, that obstacle rapidly increased in difficulty…
Crashes were plenty and often.
Alfredo Gomez was fifth fastest in the prologue. More than enough for a front row start.
Second fastest today, Joakim Ljunggren looked strong in the soft stuff. Riding a four-stroke – similar to Taddy Blazusiak last year – Ljunggren is a serious bet to put an end to Jonny Walker’s Hard Enduro grand slam hopes.
Jonny Walker was happy enough with fourth – he knows tomorrow is when it really counts. Hungry to keep his winning streak alive he’s racing to win – nothing less.
Help was at hand to drag weary body’s and bikes over some of the hazards.
Lukasz Kurowski upheld Polish honour in the absence of Taddy Blazusiak and hammered it home for the win today.
A Honda CR 250 – you’ll find every manner of bike in this paddock.
Rider 231 goes for the “Flying W”
We reckon that super long straight in the endurocross test has the making’s of a Red Bull Straight Rhythm event!
