Briton Danny McCanney was fourth after a hard struggle to reach the podium in the junior
After the summer break, the Enduro World has landed in scandinavian lands because of the sixth event which takes place in the town of Karlsborg, Sweden. Gas Gas team cannot extend its podiums streak in a ground of rocks, roots and mud very auspicious for Nordic riders. Ivan Cervantes, who was fifth yesterday in the prologue Supertest, could not improve this result in the E2 class. The rider from Cambrils saw how Juha Salminen, Alenxandre Pierre Rennet and Johnny Aubert set the pace from the start in a journey of 70 km very technical and complicated. Cervantes has focused on the fight for fourth place with the spanish Cristobal Guerrero who finally finished third at the expense of Aubert.

Gas Gas leader had been penalized due to a delay in the last control delayed because 'marshalls' have slowed too much many riders in the rally section before the tire change. Following a formal complaint, the race direction has removed the penalty to Ivan who is now fourth in the championship.

In Junior, Danny McCanney has surprised its rivals with the second place in the first lap behind the championship leader Mathias Bellino, who yesterday marked the overall scrath. However, British Gas Gas rider has lost all options when crashed in the Extreme Test and he has dropped to fourth position. However McCanney consolidated the third place in the championship standings.

Sebastien Guillaume and Jordi Figueras have had serious difficulties in the Enduro test clearly the special that makes the difference - it was the longest stage of the race- . Guillaume, one of the best in the Extreme Test made some mistakes in the endurance zone and finished seventh, while Catalan has been eleventh in E3. Meanwhile, Portuguese Gonçalo Reis has obtained the 15th position in a E1 category with many local riders who have made the Swedish public thrilled the Swedish public, very active throughout the day.
