This 3rd round of the 2018 SuperEnduro season represents an important moment for the riders to take charge and make an impact, since they will then only have 2 rounds left before the season finale of this year’s SuperEnduro World Championship (SEWC) and the crowning of the 2018 World Champion!
The challenge is therefore a big one for Cody WEBB, currently at the top of the standings, if he wants to widen the gap to his closest competitors: Taddy BLAZUSIAK, Billy BOLT, and Colton HAAKER- who all still have a chance to shine tonight and upset the rankings!
Not to mention a big extra pressure for these riders with the arrival of David KNIGHTin the arena! The first World Super Enduro Champion back in 2008 and three-time World Enduro Champion, “Knighter” takes the place of Eloi SALSENCH (injured) in the Grading List. And replaces Danny MCCANNEY (also injured) at GAS GAS, he is ultra motivated to make his place at the top of the timesheet!
The circuit on which the best international riders in the world will compete tonight is a particularly technical, narrow track, with many obstacles and bumps! It will be thrilling!
Everything suggests that the Palacio will tonight host a legendary SEWC 2018 race, with a crazy atmosphere, and a lot of pressure on the riders!
