Ivan fight for the Scratch and finished second in E2

26/09/2011
The Gas Gas riders shone on a very difficult terrain and Jordi Figueras brushed the podium at E3 class.
The return to the activity of the Enduro Spanish Championship (CEE) allowed to enjoy one intense racing doubleheader this weekend in the small town of Valls de Torroella (Barcelona). The rain that appeared at the first day and the heat of the second forced the riders to the maximum and allowed the Gas Gas team to show their competitiveness and adaptability to all circumstances.

Cervantes fought on Saturday in the mud for the absolute podium and for win in E2. The grueling race conditions brought out the best of Ivan, despite being strongly influenced by the low grip of some specials, never ceased in its efforts to beat Cristobal Guerrero and Juha Salminen in the general classification. After achieving the fastest time in several sections, finished second in E2 and third in the Scratch. For Sunday, with sunshine and good weather, returned to fight for the Scratch with Guerrero, adding a new second in E2 and in the absolute classification.

On the other hand, Jordi Figueras made a big role in E3. The rider of La Bisbal d'Empordà knew how to take full advantage of their capacity for suffering and perseverance, which led him to touch the podium on both days and add two fourth places. Josep Ralló was eighth on Saturday and ninth on Sunday in E2, while Arnau Solà, who returned this weekend after several months without competing, couldn't finish the first day and was eighth in the second in E2.

After this meeting, the team will go to Mende (France) for closing the World Championship, and after will arrive consecutively the last two rounds of the Spanish championship.

Iván Cervantes

"We had a very intense weekend, with two races very comprehensive, complicated and different from one day to another. The balance is positive, because we have been fighting for the top positions and we have even managed to score some of the best times in some tests before our rivals, Guerrero and Salminen. I'm especially happy because the bike worked perfectly in all circumstances, even with all the mud and ruts that we are on Saturday. The truth is that from Andorra we have a very competitive bike and this makes that the motivation be even greater to these latest races of the year".

Jordi Figueras

"It was a tough race, especially on Saturday and, although I would have really liked being on the podium, I think we can be satisfied. We worked hard and I'm very happy for the team, so we have to keep improving to get back among the best in this stretch of the season".
