Cervantes returns to the top of the podium in Valverde

17/04/2012
The Gas Gas rider was first and second in the Andalusian race. Gonçalo Reis was second in E1 and Jordi Figueras third in E3.
The fourth round of the Spanish Enduro Championship this past weekend revealed two types of emotions in Valverde del Camino (Huelva) in a two-day race in which Ivan Cervantes and his Gas Gas EC 450F were again at the top of the podium. The popular Andalusian event was marked by changing weather conditions that complicated the course of the special test ‘valverdeñas’, mainly in the day on Saturday, when Ivan first achieved the lead position in E2 and the Scratch.

Although the evidence was disputed on terrain very suitable and well known by his main rival, Cristóbal Guerrero, Cervantes gave everything during the first day of competition, in which the rain hindered the work of the riders. Besides Ivan, Gonçalo Reis also excelled in E1 and was second, while Jordi Figueras took another step forward to finish third in E3. For Sunday, a couple of errors in the Enduro Test and the mythical Extreme nature of the “Three holm-oaks” Cervantes was weighed down from the early stages of the race, but his honor allowed him to fight to the end for a win on this occasion and leads Guerrero. Reis was third in the smaller class, while Figueras was fourth and came within one step of the podium.

Thanks to these results, Ivan remains close Guerrero in the overall standings, waiting until the Spanish Championship returns to life on April 29th in Bassella (Lleida).

Ivan Cervantes

“It was a good weekend. Not expecting to win on Saturday, because Cristobal is very familiar with this race, but each time the bike is better and everything went perfect. Too bad a couple of small mistakes on Sunday, as this is the way of the World Championship and anything can make you lose a race. Still, we in the fight and I am very satisfied”.

Gonçalo Reis

“Every time I feel better with the bike and I have better feelings. It gives me great confidence and allows me to ride very comfortable. The best example is that in a race as difficult as this, there are things we have done very well. Everything worked great and I'm really happy with how it went this weekend”.

Jordi Figueras

“I am very happy. Every time I feel better and the fourth place means that we are moving in the right direction. This weekend our times were very close to the best and I think we can improve even more”.
