2018-08-12-Hugo_Blanjoue_F_KTM_Overall
At the end of the second day, two French riders were back on top of the podium in the third round of the European Enduro Championship in Skövde, Sweden: Hugo Blanjoue and his KTM colleague Thomas Dubost are not only riding in the same KTM-team, but both are also personally good friends and fight against each other only in the special tests. Today Blanjoue was 23 seconds ahead after nine special tests and almost one hour of special stage time.

European Enduro Championship at Skövde (Sweden) – Day 1

2018-08-11-Thomas_Dubost_F_KTM_[Winner overall]
With a total of 160 participants from 13 different Countries, the parc fermé was filled with respectable numbers of riders. The prologue the evening before was simply evaluated as the first special stage of the first day of riding and was actually so short that there were no evaluation advantages. But more than 1.000 spectators from the city of Skövde took the opportunity to take a close look at Enduro. The main focus on Saturday was of course the cross-test on the ski slope, which was almost completely overlooked. After three months without rain this changed in the afternoon - during the last lap it started to rain which was especially good for the dust development. Frenchman Thomas Dubost (in the photo) had already laid the foundation for today's win, with a narrow victory in the prologue: in the end, the KTM-rider was eight seconds ahead of Ronny Kytönen from
