Double podium for Cervantes in the Cordoba's spanish race

09/05/2011
Ivan repeated second in E2 and third in the Scratch while Jordi Figueras ends sixth in E3 after a difficult attempt to recover.
Ivan Cervantes couldn't spring a surprise in the third round of the Enduro Spanish Championship, played this weekend in Priego de Cordoba (Cordoba), after a hard day which was again second in Enduro 2 and third in the absolute standings.

The Gas Gas rider found himself penalized by a drop in the first Extreme Test of the day and because all the other tests of the day were particularly short. This prevented him from getting a good rhythm and open differences, so that although his recovery enabled him to finish to three seconds to the second place Scratch, occupied by Juha Salminen, let him not prevent Cristobal Guerrero highlighted in his head. The same situation was moved to the classification of E2, where Ivan had to settle for second after Guerrero, while Joan Barreda was more than 38 seconds behind the catalan.

Jordi Figueras also hadn't a good start and spent much of Cordoba race trying to recover the seconds lost in the fall he suffered on the opening test, the same that failed Ivan. As happened to Cervantes, the characteristics of the tests became very complicated go up beyond the sixth-place in its class. Josep Rallo had less luck in E1, and he had to leave during the first round to rally.

The team will move directly to Francavilla di Sicilia, which next weekend will host the Italian Grand Prix, the third round of the Enduro World Championship. Ivan goes on to defend his third place in E2 and Christophe Nambotin his second place in E3.

Iván Cervantes

"I haven't started anything good the day, because in the first stage I crashed and I lost more than five seconds decisive. I have had to recover but the tests were so short than aren't favorable to open differences, but I managed to move from fifth to third Scratch. Cristobal has had a great race, like Juha Salminen, but I'm sure I could have been a little higher in the standings. Still, I think we should be happy".

Jordi Figueras

"I suffered a fall in the first Extreme Test, just start the race, and I was unable to recover the time I lost. Here, with a tests with a length too short, only one mistake was very expensive and I paid it with the sixth place in E3. I'm not very satisfied, and I just hope that in Italy all goes a bit better".
