KTM’s Alfredo Gomez takes the win at Hixpania Hard Enduro

Comunicato Stampa disponibile solo in lingua originale. 

Red Bull KTM rider #alfredogomez wrapped up a strong weekend of #racing with a win in the Hixpania Hard Enduro, a 2.5-hour, multi-lap race set in and around a quarry in northern #spain. It was a satisfying victory for Gomez in front of his home crowd and he finished ahead of perennial rival, British veteran Graham Jarvis. Mario Roman of #spain finished third ahead of a field of mostly Spanish riders.

Alfredo Gomez was also second behind Jarvis in Friday’s nighttime city prologue, a great favorite with the spectators. He followed this up on Saturday with another second in the 60 km Enduro around the lake. But he saved the best till last to take the win in the main #event in this inaugural race, new to the Hard Enduro calendar. The top 40 competitors from Saturday’s race qualified for Sunday’s main #event.

Gomez: “Winning this race is incredible. It’s my home race, so many people came here to watch me, and to give them a Spanish victory is fantastic. I’m so happy right now. The whole weekend has been really good. I rode well on both Friday and Saturday but in the back of my mind I wanted to save something for today and win when it really counted. I got to my bike okay in the Le Mans style start and exited the cave fourth or fifth. Then after the first big climb I got into the lead and pretty much rode at the front for the entire race. On lap two I found out that Graham (Jarvis) had a problem with his bike and it gave me a big lead. But I had to keep pushing hard until the end because you never know with Graham. It’s been a great first edition of the Hixpania Hard Enduro.”
