In spite of the very good weather and the very dry terrain, in all the classes the difficulties chosen by the organizers were insidious enough to make riders work hard, especially because some of them were not at their ease under the no stop rules, also because in some national championships these rules havenot been applied, yet.New record of entries in the top class: 32, with a total of 105 riders taking their start today.

2015-04-11-Maurizio Micheluz web
Maurizio Micheluz in action The overall champion from last year, the Italian Maurizio Micheluz, won the first day of the season-opener in Rieti (Italy) in front of the French Benoit Fortunato. This shows, that the small motors have been the fastest in the tests, because both riders used the 250cc-motorbikes. Third in the overall ranking was British rider Tom Sagar two places in front of the German Marco Neubert – both riding in the E2-class and so Sagar won the class in the last lap.Not this strong has been the class with the big bikes, the E3-class: winner of the day, Swedish rider Martin Sundin lost more than one and a half minute to Micheluz and was only 23rd in the overall, in front of Finnish rider Rony Nikander.Werner Müller, the eight-times-champion, seems to be unbeatable: after the first round nearly 5 seconds back, he pushed into the lead and
