Kevin Saar does it again in EMX Quad European Championship
and starts the new season with a win
The first round of the EMX Quad European Championship officially kicked off last weekend in the beautiful track of Lange near the city of Tartu. Situated in south-east Estonia, it is the second largest city in the country about 180 km away from the capital Tallinn.
The first seasonal race out of five saw 18 riders fight for the win in good weather conditions and in a friendly atmosphere.
European Champion Kevin Saar was the man to beat at the first event of the 2023 Championship and Race 1 featured the win of Norwegian Joakim Granli who managed to take on the challenge of defeating Kevin Saar by a comfortable margin. Kevin had to settle for second place while Patrick Turrini of Italy was third.
In the second race Kevin managed to win in great style with a 47 second gap on the second placed Karl Robin Rillo, also from Estonia, thus securing his first win of the season and the lead in the Championship standings. Third was again Patrick Turrini while winner of race 1 Joakim Granli got demoted 5 places to 7th for failing the noise test after the race, therefore missing the overall podium by 1 point.
Next round of the EMX Quad European Championship will take place in Gdansk (Poland) on the 17th-18th June.
