Winning weekend for Airohriders at Abestone Hard Enduro in Italy

2021 Hardenduro02 Italy Bolt

Held in the Tuscan mountains close to the town of Abetone, round two of the FIM Hard Enduro World Championship covered three days of racing.

Billy Bolt: “I’m made up to stand on the top step of the podium. It’s been a perfect weekend - winning every time I went out on track. I wanted to prove to myself that I’ve matured as a rider outdoors and I feel like I’ve showed that. I feel like I’ve proven myself in tough Hard Enduro riding. Starting first today meant I had Mani chasing me and when he caught me on lap one, the race was really on. We battled back and forth, constantly changing positions. But we were pushing so hard it meant we had a big gap over everyone else. I knew I was stronger on the descents. On the final lap I just went for the pass, made it stick and hung it out for the win!”

Graham Jarvis: “I’m really happy to get on the podium with third, but I made it hard for myself in qualifying. Starting ninth wasn’t ideal and it was hard to get through the traffic early on. Also, I wasn’t too settled on lap one. We decided not to refuel starting lap two and it paid off for sure. I found my flow, grabbed a few more positions and really made that final lap count. Overall, both my speed and fitness was good today, so I’m looking forward now to Romaniacs.”

Alfredo Gomez: “The first part of the race was good. Riding with Graham I was feeling good. We managed to catch and pass a lot of the other guys on the way up the mountain, but on the descents I wasn’t so comfortable. I’m happy to go top five and finally get the season underway, but today wasn’t my best day.”
