Assoluti d'Italia Enduro 2018 - Sanremo

BETA SATISFACTION: STEVE HOLCOMBE WINS THE ASSOLUTA, MATTEO CAVALLO 3°

Steve Holcombe dominated the second round of the Italian Championship winning the prestigious Assoluta and the Foreigners class.

The Beta Factory Enduro Team showed up at full, last weekend, in Sanremo during the second round of the Assoluti d’Italia di Enduro. At the start so the British rider Steve Holcombe and the Corsican Christophe Charlier, both lined up in the Foreigners class and in the Absolute.

The MC Sanremo has organized an impeccable race that has opened with the Extreme as first special test placed in a point with a beautiful panoramic view of the city, followed by the Enduro Test with an average travel time between the top riders of about 5 minutes and a half and a final Cross Test on the beach of Arma di Taggia.

The absolute star of the second round of the race was our Steve Holcombe who won the Assoluta in which recorded well eight absolute best times on twelve special tests held to win the Foreigners class. At his first Italian appearance in the 2018 season the British rider immediately puts his qualities on the field beating the competition.

Great results also for the riders of Beta Boano Team: Matteo Cavallo conquered the third step of the podium and the victory in the Junior class while Brad Freeman terminated 5° in the Assoluta class. Our riders have so led 3 Beta among the top five.

Christophe Charlier hasn’t been able to repeat the good performance of Passirano, site of the first round of the Assoluti. An unlucky and unsatisfying day for the Corsican rider who ended fourth in the Foreigners class.

The next appointment of the Beta Factory Enduro Team will be at Castiglion Fiorentino on April 7th and 8th, where will take place the third and fourth round of the Assoluti d’Italia di Enduro.

STEVE HOLCOMBE

“I am satisfied with the result obtained at my first appearance of 2018 here in Italy. I raced without ever pushing hard and I managed to win Assoluta and Foreign class. I think that as here in Sanremo also in Castiglion Fiorentino I will be able to train the best in view of the second round of the World Championship that will be held in Spain”.

CHRISTOPHE CHARLIER

“I’m not satisfied with the race I did, but I want to thank the whole Team and the mechanics who helped me here in Sanremo. We tried different suspension settings during the race and at the end we achieved an excellent result, a pity that the race day was already compromised”.
