As was the case in 2017, the Italian TM Factory brand will be represented in the 2018 FIM Maxxis SuperEnduro World Championship through its importer, Lowo TM Racing Germany. And like last season, Team Manager Logan WILMS will be able to count on the HERRERA brothers (CL), in addition to a young Romanian rider.
Vice-World Junior Champion in 2017, Benjamin HERRERA is back for a second full season in SuperEnduro. Aged 23, the Chilean will have to face the stars of the Prestige category, riding his TM 300Fi. Even if it seems a daunting task, HERRERA could surprise a few people with his pace and his spectacular riding.
On the other hand, his brother Diego HERRERA should be a serious candidate for the Top 5 in Junior, perhaps a future champion? 12th in 2017 for his debut season, the younger of the two HERRERA brothers showed some flashes of his talent.
The Lowo TM Racing Germany team has also announced the arrival of a second Junior rider to support Diego HERRERA; the Romanian hope Norbert Levente JOZSA (20 years old) will try SuperEnduro for the very first time, on the start gate with a TM EN 300Fi.
The return of the two HERRERAs to SuperEnduro proves the growing attraction of this discipline, which continues to develop, and which garners a lot of interest in South America. Above all, this news promises excellent races in the Junior category, which is THE category of the stars of the future. We will also follow with great interest the development of Benjamin in the Prestige class!
