Laia added a new victory and Danny returns to the podium

14/05/2012
Sanz and Puy staged another tight struggle in the Women class. Ignorance of the special test penalized Ivan in E2, and Guillaume was fifth in E3.
The second and final day of the Polisport Enduro Grand Prix of Portugal proved once again had the struggle for the World Championship in the women (EW) which is a continuous duel between Laia Sanz and ‘Lulu’ Puy, after the Catalan turned around the situation from the previous day and exalted herself this time with the victory. The one who suffered more than desired was Ivan Cervantes, as his early abandonment of Saturday prevented him could discover the correct path of the special and he failed to fight for the podium on Sunday. After some good rides in some of the stages, the overall result of the day left him in tenth position and a fifth in the overall championship provisional standings.

The one who was able to enjoy a successful day on Sunday was the youngster from the Isle of Man, Danny McCanney, who day after day is gaining more confidence in Junior. McCanney was third and consolidated in the same position overall. On the other hand, one who demonstrated a good line on Saturday was ‘Seb’ Guillaume, who was second in E3, and finished with an encouraging fifth place on Sunday. The result is particularly positive given that the second race days are stressful for him because of the recent lung surgery he underwent a few weeks ago. Jordi Figueras again demonstrated his honor and his relentless progression with a ninth place in the same category. Finally, Gonçalo Reis repeated in eighth place in Enduro 1 and had a very good weekend in his home Grand Prix.

Ivan Cervantes

“The fact that Saturday I could not complete even one of the stages, on Sunday I didn’t have any course reference causing everything to be much more difficult. The first lap was very complicated, but I must admit that psychologically it was not my best day, since the abandonment on Saturday was a severe blow. We must recover, do a reset and return to giving it our all.”

Laia Sanz

“After seeing how it went this weekend, I think this will be the keynote of the whole World Championship. The races will be hotly contested and the key will not to make mistakes. This weekend has been pretty tough, especially mentally after my mistake on Friday in the Super Test, so Sunday I went for it and eventually was able to get the win. I'm happy for the win and, above all, because these points are vital to the title”.

‘Seb’ Guillaume

“This weekend I rediscovered a bit my prior pace and I feel much better than last week. The truth is I am very happy with the podium on Saturday and I think the fifth Sunday is good because I'm still not a hundred percent physically. I am convinced that we can improve even more in preparation for the coming races. I'm happy for the whole team and I have to thank them all for the work and support they have given me”.
