Enduro European Championship:
the 2022 Borilli European Enduro Championship enters its second half
The 24 MX round 3 will take place this weekend in Sipoo, Finland, just 40 km east of the capital Helsinki.
It’s the chance for Belgian Erik Willems to extend his lead in the overall standings: the Husqvarna rider had lost much of his lead due to technical problems in the last round and now it’s time to redeem.
His toughest opponent, the Briton Dan Mundell, had already prepared himself the past days in Sweden, with similar ground conditions as in Sipoo.
But the three-time Enduro World Champion Eero Remes can also be considered one of the favourites: the Finn will use his home race as guest start in the European Championship.
The 2019 European Champion, Eemil Pohjola, is also one of the riders to keep an eye on at his home race.
In the senior category, Marko Tarkkala, one of the big names in Finnish enduro racing, will also be competing.
On both days, Saturday and Sunday, three off-road rounds, each over 65 km long, await the riders – practical for the teams and spectators is that the course in the form of a big 8 has both checkpoints directly at the paddock, where the cross test will also be ridden. In addition, the participants have to complete a five-kilometre enduro test and a demanding extreme test.
An official opening ceremony with all the riders will take place on Friday evening at 20:00.
