Husqvarna Factory Racing’s Billy Bolt got his FIM SuperEnduro World Championship title defence off to a perfect start with victory at round one in Poland. In what was his first return to racing following a five-month injury, Bolt won all three Prestige races in Krakow, along with topping the SuperPole hot lap, to make it a clean sweep at the season opener.

Beta’s Jonny Walker continued his winning AMA EnduroCross form into Poland and was Bolt’s only real competition. He went 2-2-2 for the night and held off Bolt in the final moto of the night…for the first 5 laps. Sherco’s Cody Webb never really threatened Bolt or Walker, but was consistent with a 3-3-3 night and GasGas local hero Taddy Blazusiak finished fourth overall with American Cooper Abbott finishing a well earned fifth overall for the nights work.

Of note: there was no Factory KTM involvement at the event.

Billy Bolt: “I’m so pleased to be back racing, but to make my comeback with a clean sweep of wins and taking SuperPole is the dream start to the championship I had hoped for. It’s felt like a long and tough five months off the bike, but I’m chuffed to be back on the bike and racing hard again. It’s what I love to do. Although tonight went to plan, I feel like I’ve some work to do to get back to my very best. We’ve a couple of weeks until round two in Germany, so I’ll keep working hard to be even stronger there.”
