Sanz’ second victory in the World Enduro Championship

07/05/2012
A difficult weekend for Cervantes, who lost the leadership of E2. McCanney on the podium in EJ and Guillaume leaves E3 with physical problems.
The dispute of the second and final day of the Enduro Grand Prix AMV Euskadi took a similar line in sight for Munitibar on Saturday, with another victory in Féminas for Laia Sanz over 'Lulu' Puy and many problems for the rest of the Gas Gas pilots in the absolute categories.

Those who took the brunt of the second round were Ivan Cervantes Biscay, which fall in the first stage of the day lost all the options for vistory, and Sebastien Guillaume, who suffered from his recent lung surgery and had to drop out. More fortunate was the race for Danny McCanney in Enduro Junior, because he managed to get on the podium in third position, and to Gonçalo Reis, eighth in E1. Meanwhile, Jordi Figueras repeated in the eleventh position of E3.

The intense battle between the two Gas Gas riders Ludivine Puy and Laia Sanz returned to opt in favor of the Catalana after a very consistent day to which was added 1 minute penalty received by the French woman who fell out of control time . This gave an added reassurance to Laia at the end of the race, managing to take a minute and 17 seconds over her team mate. Meanwhile, Ivan suffered much more than expected to be forced to pick from the 21st position in which the first Extreme test ended after a crash that cost him more than 50 seconds. The point of honor did not allow him to surrender and he kept going, slowly gaining positions from the last place in the standings until arriving in ninth place at the finish. This result causes him to lose the lead in the E2 standings, but remains third after 'Pela' Renet and Cristobal Guerrero, who dominated the race.

Laia Sanz

“After Saturday's win I knew we could do it again. My goal was to win a race but did not have to go here and less on both days. I think I cannot ask for more, but we must be aware that the championship is long and there will be many races and it will be very difficult to win against Lulu. This land was not the one I favor, but I think the key has been that the rally was very hard and complicated and this has been the determining factor. Next week in Portugal will certainly be a very different race and Lulu will be very fast”.
