Mini Enduro Cup:
the season got underway in Italy

The Mini Enduro Cup season kicked off in great style in Aviano, Italy, with two intense days of fighting. In mixed weather conditions the weekend started with a parade from the paddock to the main square of the town, escorted by the reigning European Champion Maurizio Micheluz. Nation by nation riders took to the stage, thus giving the official start to the event. The route: four laps each day with one Enduro Test of about six minutes and one Cross Test.

Day 1
Italian rider Gioele Scibilia (Beta) won the Overall by just 10 seconds over French rider Emerick Vergote (Beta) at the end of a thrilling day. P3 for another Frenchman, Ewen Forestier-Chiron (GasGas). The three riders were also on the podium of the 125 Mini class.
In the 50 Mini class victory for Davide Cabass (Fantic) ahead of Nicolò Mancinelli (Beta) by 12 seconds.
All-Italian podium in the Junior with Cristian Marioli (GasGas) first ahead of Evan Moschetti (KTM) and Duccio Giraldi (Husqvarna).
Charlene Boudon (Yamaha) won the Women 125 Mini class with a gap of over 3 minutes. P2 for Jean Santine (KTM), while the Polish Maja Kozlowska (Husqvarna) finished third.
The Italian flag flew high in the Women Junior class thanks to Anika Dal Pezzo (KTM), who won ahead of Michelle Sinigaglia (Husqvarna) and Desiree Carollo (Husqvarna).

Day 2
Great fight between Swedish rider Wiggo Lifvendahl (Husqvarna) and the Polish Michal Laska (KTM), separated by a few hundredths throughout the day. At the end of the eight special tests the Swedish took the victory by just three seconds. P3 for Vergote. Unlucky day for Scibilia: fourth at the end of the day, he had to deal with a comeback race due to a problem in the first special test. The three riders of the Overall were also the main players of the 125 Mini class.
Cabass confirms himself in the 50 Mini class.
In the Junior class Moschetti won ahead of Andrea Surini (KTM) and Giraldi.
