Dahlen in Germany was the venue for the opening round of the 2019 FIM World Enduro Championship which was regarded as an excellent start to the season with a tough course and excellent tests witnessed by thousands of spectators.
The British Flag was by far the most evident at the Prize Giving Ceremonies on both days, with results that have not been witnessed before.
In the main GP class, 2018 Champion Steve Holcombe (Beta) took victory in almost devastating style. On Day 1 Danny McCanney (TM) was 2nd
and Brad Freeman (Beta) 3rd
as British riders filled the podium steps.
In respective classes Steve took E3 victory, with Danny again in 2nd
spot. Brad Freeman was the E1 winner.
Day 2 was same again with Steve claiming GP victory and also E3. This time Brad claimed GP 2nd
place with Danny taking 3rd
That was not all however, Jack Edmondson (Sherco) won Junior 2 on Day 1 and claimed 2nd
spot on Day 2.
In the new Open class, Richard Tucker (Gas Gas) took 2nd
spot on Day 1 but went one better to take the win on Day 2.
The Open Senior class proved especially popular with the return of David Knight taking the win on both days and Euan McConnell filling the 3rd spot with both riding on TM’s.
Brexit may be taking some sorting, but our British Enduro riders have it nailed
