Germany’s Manuel Lettenbichler won the tough Machete Hard Enduro held in the Dominican Republic, finishing ahead of Jonny Walker and Mario Roman.

Jonny Walker returned from his injury with a strong second place finish at the Machete Hard Enduro.

The conditions were hot and humid in the Dominican jungle and while the event looked like a hard-fought win for Rockstar Husqvarna’s Graham Jarvis, a late race crash ended in a shoulder injury that took him out of the competition. Graham had worked his way through the pack, moving into the lead before the crash.

Graham Jarvis got into the lead only to crash and injure his shoulder, resulting in a DNF.

 

Mario Roman took his Sherco to a podium finish after struggling with some mechanical drama early on.

In the end Lettenbichler took over and finished ten minutes ahead of Red Bull KTM rider Jonny Walker and Sherco’s Mario Roman. Early on Wade Young led but a navigation error got him disqualified. Mario Roman overcame some mechanical issues to finish third overall.

Wade Young went out hard and fast, leading until he missed part of the course and was DQ’d.
