WESS EXTREME ENDURO CHAMPIONSHIP- TITLE FIGHT IN SWEDEN

The World Enduro Super Series title fight heats up this weekend as the series heads to Sweden for the Gotland Grand National, the penultimate round of the 2018 season. With six rounds now complete, Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing’s Billy Bolt (GB) leads the way with Germany’s Manuel Lettenbichler (KTM) and Red Bull KTM Factory Racing’s Josep Garcia (ESP) in close contention.

The third series leader in as many races, Billy Bolt currently holds the upper hand over his championship rivals. Winning the opening event back in May, Bolt has back-to-back podium results at Red Bull 111 Megawatt and the Hawkstone Park Cross-Country.

Marking the 35th edition of the Swedish classic, this year’s Gotland Grand National is set to welcome over 3000 competitors as the battle intensifies to become the ULTIMATE ENDURO CHAMPION. A ‘must-do’ event on the Swedish racing calendar, the three-hour Cross-Country race – situated on the small island of Gotland – attracts thousands of annual competitors. Its rocky terrain, with technical tree rooted forestry tracks and marshy wetlands, ensures the 22-kilometre long course provides a physically demanding race for all.

Sitting just 125 points behind Bolt – with a remaining 2000 points up for grabs – Manuel Lettenbichler is a close second. The German privateer has been sensational this season proving himself as a championship contender regardless of the terrain or Enduro discipline faced.
