Second position for Danny McCanney in the GP of Sweden

26/08/2012
Ivan Cervantes retires because of a heavy hit in the back of his Gas Gas
The second day of the Grand Prix Sweden has been really difficult for Gas Gas riders, but the young Danny McCanney returns to the podium. The Isle of Man's rider has fought face to face with the master of the Junior and race leader, Mathias Bellino, until a crash that away him from the victory. Despite this setback, McCanney just lost 30 seconds and has retained the second position ahead of local rider, Robert Kvarnström and Jonathan Manzi. McCanney joins five podiums in his debut season with 162 points and approaches the championship runner, Manzi (178 p).

In the other side Ivan Cervantes was forced to retire in the second lap of the course. The rider from Cambrils was in the sixth position of the E2 class when in a section, a stone hit the bike chain guide and was impossible to continue. However, Cervantes, who yesterday was fifth, retains fourth place in the overall standings.

With the ninth position and as it did yesterday, Sebastien Guillaume entered in the 'top 10' of a disputed Enduro 3 category. At the end of the day, the Frenchman has highlighted the difficulty of the special because of the rain that fell early in the morning making the Enduro Test particularly critical for all participants. In the first round, Jordi Figueras had to leave on the same zone as well as the Portuguese Gonçalo Reis who crashed and suffered that caused a bruise in the ribs. Therefore the Gas Gas rider in E1 class has decided to retire as a precaution as next week is held the penultimate event of Enduro World Championship in the town of Heinola, Finland.

DANNY MCCANNEY

"It was a great day for me. I've had some problems since hitting a tree and I lost some time. But I'm very happy because we had the pace and get back on the podium"

IVAN CERVANTES

"It's a shame because we lose many points for the championship not only to win but to be close if any of our competitors fail in the next races. But now we have to charge batteries for Finland to try to finish in the top 3 in the championship although it's very difficult" .
