The 1st round of the Enduro Master Beta Challenge, now at its 6th edition, started from Ragogna (UD) in combination with the Friuli Regional Championship under the direction of the MotoClub Tagliamento.
The course included an enduro test of 4 kilometres and two cross tests of 4 and 2 kilometres respectively, to be repeated three times for a total of 56 kilometres. Of the more than 300 bikes present at the race, more than a third were Beta and most of these entered fully in the Beta Enduro Master Challenge, which therefore saw an excellent turnout for the first round.
Round 1 gave victory to Vanni Cominotto, who climbed the top step of the podium in the Top Class riding a Beta RR 250 2T and imposing his pace on Alessio Bini and Andrea Gava, respectively silver and bronze of the day.
In the 125 Class, the best player was Emanuele Pittioni, who gave Gioele Granchi a hard time while the podium was completed by Filippo Bellesia. Growing in size for the 250 Class, the main player was Jacopo Rossi, who edged out Lorenzo Andreini by 2 minutes and Lorenzo Filippi by 3 minutes and 46 seconds, while the 300 2-stroke Class was the affair of Mattia Coppa, who was faster than Gabriele Nagostinis and Marco Pegoraro.
Omar Gambarini was the leader of the 4T Class riding a Beta 350. Omar over the course of the 9 special stages got the better of a high-performing Mirko Pavan and an equally impressive Alexander Maltry. To close the first round of the Challenge called «Liqui Moly Race» could not miss the Veteran Class with 16 competitors at the start. Here Renzo Ravagli, an «institution» for Master Beta, came out on top, ahead of Marco Drusiani, another loyalist of this off-road event, and Giulio Barbieri.
Team Manager Paolo Machetti was in charge of the organisation and Beta hospitality, renewing the appointment for all trophy riders for next 21st May in Pomarance (PI) with the Enduro Master Beta Race 2 – Reikon Race.
