The Title Fight
Marcuc Kehr (left) and Denis Schröter (right) have been locked in a battle all season long for championship honours. In Waldkappel momentum rolled in Schröter’s favour. Another victory and benefitting from Kehr’s bad day at the office saw him edge closer to the title.
Frenchman Fabien Planet skipped a round of the French series to compete in Waldkappel. And it was a gamble that nearly paid off for him. Despite taking three test wins, a big mistake on the final test knocked him out of podium contention.
Schröter has been a model of consistency in 2014. Be it sand, hard packed, mud or rain he keeps dishing out the wins. Despite being faced with one of his closest challenges to date, the Husqvarna rider held strong to top the standings at round six.
Putting It On The Podium
Davide Von Zitzewitz had a day to remember at round six. Picking up the Enduro 2 class win he also bagged a hard fought top three overall result.
The German Enduro Championship is looking on point these days. Purpose built starting ramp that serves as an end of day podium, up-to-the-minute timing and a growing media interest saw the series attract a massive 300-plus entry in Waldkappel.
Weaving its way round a stubble field the cross test had plenty of ruts, hills, hollows and drop offs to keep everyone on their toes.
The championship continues in Tucheim in four weeks time.
