Just rode the 3rd round in the fim extreme-enduro cup.
This is the extreme-enduro europeian championship.
On friday we had a fast prolog with a tyre and obstacle section.
I had a good rythm and got 11th.
This suprised me as i am not so fast but more towards the technical stuff.
The prolog desides the starting order for the 5 hr main race on saturday.
First 2 hrs was shit.
Chrashed a million times.
Came in for fuel and went out again.
On the 3rd lap i smashed my foot in a chrash and 30 min later i took my elbow.
Then fuel again and a quick snack.
On lap 4 my foot started to give me shit.
I could not use it the make momentum to get over the logs and tires so i had to carry my bike over all the obstacles.
Overall a fucking hard day.
Satisfied that i never gave up.
I got 12th place.
Now i stand a 9th in the championship with 1 remaning round in Germany in October.
Best regards Martin
Hey FTWCO! Been a bit. Sorry about that. I was starting to notice that all the pics I’d been sending you were looking kinda the same, so I’ve been looking for some “different” ones. Luckily, Liz Horton (Instagram: https://instagram.com/deathroddixie/) Snagged a few at a practice day awhile back. Gonna bombard ya with a few, so you can pick & choose.
Race reports? Lessee… Did a short track on 7/18. A bit of an off night for me. Finished toward the back of the Sportsman class, and only managed a 3rd place in 40+. Struggled with gearing all night.
At the beginning of August, My boy and I did the I-70 series in Kansas. I landed on the podium in Dodge City and Colby, 3rd place. Newbold had my number. I really struggled with the long track at Stockton, and ended up 4th and 5th for the 2 races there. On a positive note, my boy won the series in the 85cc class with 3 wins and a 3rd. Got to meet Jordan Baber! Great guy and fast!
This past weekend was back at the short track. I scratched out of Sportsman, but holeshotted 40+ and led the whole race. Felt good to get a win again.
Anyway, here’s the pics. First 4 by Liz Horton:
