MATT PHILLIPS IS THE E3 WORLD CHAMPION!
The Thunder From Down Under, Matt Phillips delivered on his promise of brining home the title by winning the Enduro 3 World Championship at the final round of the series in France.
Entering Brioude with an 11-point advantage over Ivan Cervantes – but with a busted foot – Phillips ignored the pain to win day one and put himself in the perfect position to wrap things up on day two.
Bringing it home in third, Phillips picked up his first senior title while also becoming the first rider to win both a junior and senior championship back to back.
“I’m lost for words – it’s an incredible feeling to be world champion,” told Phillips.
“To win a championship for my first time in the senior ranks is more than I ever expected. All season Ivan and myself have fought hard, it’s been a great battle and I’m delighted to have won.”
On behalf of Enduro21 congrats Matt. You’re a true Tassie ripper!
