MEO’S PERFECT ITALIAN RUN CONTINUES
Three rounds in and Antoine Meo remains undefeated in the overall standings of the Italian Enduro Championship
Round three of Italian Enduro Championship headed to Spoleto in Perugia where the local Spoleto Moto Club laid on two top days of action. With conditions soft but dry for day one on Saturday, Sunday saw things turn rather muddy after some seriously heavy overnight rain.
Once again, Antoine Meo eased his way into race mode, ending the opening special test in fifth. But the Frenchman soon clicked it up a gear and began showing some real speed. His dominance during the weekend was impressive.
Winning seven out of the 12 special tests on Saturday he then went on to establish himself as the absolute winner by topping eight out of nine tests on Sunday.
Despite his double win, Meo’s dominant performance didn’t completely overshadow Alex Salvini’s effort during the weekend. The Honda rider ended both days as runner-up to Meo in the overall standings.
Manuel Monni delivered a strong ride on Saturday…
By fighting for the win in every stage, Salvini seems to be back on top of his game and is no doubt going to feature heavily – alongside Meo – at the sharp end of the E2 class when the EWC begins next month in Chile.
Another strong performance came by the way of TM’s Manuel Monni, who was third overall on Saturday and sixth overall on Sunday.
Improving in both speed and consistency, Eero Remes powered his four-stroke TM to third overall on Sunday after placing fourth overall on Saturday.
In what was his best result so far this year, Frenchman Johnny Aubert was fifth overall on Saturday and fourth overall on Sunday. Beta’s factory rider is making some steady progress and he’ll definitely be among the top guys in the upcoming EWC.
The Italian Enduro Championship now takes a short break and resumes in Asti on June 28.
