Indoor Enduro Final Round
- Trials Central
The FIM Indoor Enduro World Cup will hold its third and final competition 7th February in the Palacio de Deportes in Madrid. Iván Cervantes arrives in Madrid after victories in Barcelona and Genoa. With the general classification in his hands, Teddy Blazusiak being thirteen points behind him, Cervantes is the favourite to win.
In Genoa, Iván Cervantes was clearly superior after winning two of the final rounds, while Tadeusz Blazusiak had a difficult night. The KTM driver, the only driver who doesn´t usually compete in the Enduro World Championship, is the only one of the candidates to go for victory in the in Indoor Cup. Thanks to his victory in the third final, the Polish driver can still fight for the title in the Madrid competition.
Mika Ahola, the current Enduro World Champion, has had an up and down trajectory in the World championship over the last few years. Ahola arrived in Genoa a strong contender in the fight for title of the Indoor World Cup, but the falls he had in the first two laps meant that he scored hardly any points. In the third lap he made second place, which keeps him in third position in the general classification of the World Cup, though far behind Iván Cervantes. Without the pressure of fighting for the title, he arrives in Madrid needing to make up for his mistakes with victories.
One of the big surprises of Genoa was the performance of Dougie Lampkin. The 7-time Champion of the Trial World once again demonstrated how easily the stars of balance adapt to Enduro extreme. He reached fourth position in his first appearance in an Enduro Indoor, just behind the Spanish Xavi Galindo, who maintains his fifth place in the general classification, and who arrives in Madrid ready to give the Spanish crowds a great show.
Next 7th February, a Spanish driver will fight for the world title in Madrid. Iván Cervantes has managed to give all the Enduro and motorbike lovers the opportunity to celebrate one of the victories which will remain in the memories of all motorcycling fans.
