fim europeThe first day at the third round of the Enduro European Championship (EEC) in Casanova di Staffora / Italy was won by the British rider Tom Sagar on his KTM: he was 51 seconds in front of the reigning Champion Maurizio Micheluz and his countryman Jacopo Cerutti – Both couldn’t take time from their “home-advantage”.

Micheluz took the second place in the last of the six tests – which came together to 50 minutes: “I know, Jacco was only fife seconds far, so I pushed as hard as possible.” This helped him to win this enduro-test with 8 seconds in front of Cerutti and so he took the second place of the day. With this we already have the the winner of three main classes.

The E1-Class was won by Suzuki-rider Maurizio Micheluz with nearly 50 seconds in front of the Swiss Jonathan Rosse on the Yamaha and the British Jack Rowland on the Husqvarna. As the fastest overall, Tom Sagar also won the E2-Class in front of spezial guest Mirko Gritti from Italy on the KTM and the German Mark Risse on TM. The second in championship, the British Jamie Lewis, cought three minutes penalty, because after a crash in the test he did not enter the track at the same position, where he left it.

After a day with a lot of problems the French Audrey Rossat took the second place – more than three minutes behind the Italian Cristina Marrocco! With her home-advantage she made her first victory in the women-class, while Rossat is still leading.
