Freeman Defends Enduro3 Crown at EnduroGP on Day 1 as Etchells Takes Junior Win

The opening day at the BORILLI FIM EnduroGP World Championship final round in France saw multiple champions crowned with Andrea Verona (GASGAS), Josep Garcia (KTM) and Brad Freeman (Beta) taking the respective Enduro1, Enduro2 and Enduro3 titles.

With Langeac in France marking the sixth and final stop of this year’s BORILLI FIM EnduroGP World Championship, the opening day of competition was one of celebration and success. At the head of the field, Garcia claimed an important EnduroGP class win to keep his title hopes alive with one day remaining.

In the Enduro3 class, as it has been all season so far, Enduro3 was again all about Brad Freeman. The Beta rider was untouchable as he also fought for overall EnduroGP honours. Comfortably powering his way to an incredible 11th consecutive win, he successfully defended his Enduro3 crown to become a six-time FIM Enduro World Champion.

“It feels great to wrap up the Enduro3 title and back up what I won last year,” said Freeman. “I really love riding this 300 two-stroke and the bike never missed a beat all season. I’m really happy to have brought another title to the team because they work so hard for this. Hopefully tomorrow we can go on to win the big one and get that EnduroGP crown.”

Jaume Betriu (KTM) was runner-up to Freeman, while Daniel McCanney (Sherco) took third. Jamie McCanney (Husqvarna) and Antoine Basset (Beta) completed the top five.

Enduro Junior – Joy For Etchells

In the Enduro Junior class Jed Etchells (Fantic) took the victory. His first win of the season, the Manxman battled right to the final test with Bernat Cortes (GASGAS) to top the podium by just over two seconds. In the fight for this year’s title, championship leader Matteo Pavoni (TM) had a mixed day at the office finishing third. But with closest rival and teammate Lorenzo Macoritto placing fourth, Pavoni holds a 17-point advantage with one day remaining and looks to be the champion elect.
