DAY ONE IN THE PIATRA NEAMT MOUNTAINS

As Friday’s prologue winner, Jonny Walker led the field away. But being the first rider on the road didn’t have its benefits for Walker and with a couple of navigational mistakes the field closed in.

At home in the Romanian mountains, Graham Jarvis had the bit between his teeth and chased Walker hard.

Reaching the final hill climb there was little between both Walker and Jarvis with Alfredo Gomez also in check.  A crash by Walker saw Jarvis hit the front, who scaled the hill first to take home the stage win.

Following his teammate, Gomez passed Walker to grab second with Walker taking third.

Hard Enduro rookie Marcus Kehr had a mixed day. The German stayed in touch with the leaders for most of the day until a crash dropped him back. He still hangs on to seventh.

It was a bad day for Wade Young who ran out of fuel on the mountain.

After Friday’s sunny spells, day one in the mountains was met with rain. Those who started first were lucky as conditions worsened making it anything but an easy ride at the back.
