Dougie Lampkin, a shot at glory in the Hell's Gate

14/02/2011
The british rider was the second highest ranked in the most popular extreme enduro event in Italy.

The mountains of Ciocco in Tuscany (Italy), lived this weekend the hardest edition of Hell's Gate extreme enduro and Dougie Lampkin ran to a single step to achieve a new victory in this classic winter appointment.

The british rider started well in the first part of the race, a classic enduro that qualified best for the final extreme test, achieving second place overall. Dougie was a little over 56 seconds behind the winner, Graham Jarvis, and clearly ahead of reputable enduro riders like Xavi Galindo, the rider also Gas Gas Alessandro Botturi, Maurizio Gerini and Andreas Lettenbichler.

Given the extreme race, which this year significantly tightened its travel, Dougie started the first section as leader and remained in this place to be outdone by Jarvis, which was gradually taking advantage of being the leader to mark the time of reference.

The special rules of the Hell's Gate, which require progressively eliminate the riders when they are outstrip by the leader in far too long, and the remarkable length of the rally, turned the extreme in an elimination race. Jarvis was the only rider that would end officially leaving Lampkin as the second best driver in the overall.

Moreover, Alessandro Botturi, the main italian star in Hell's Gate, was forced to withdrawn mid-race after suffering an important fall.
