14th ANNUAL BARCELONA INDOOR ENDURO

The British rider Danny McCanney swept the SuperEnduro Junior class on his Gas Gas EC 300 2T, capturing the lead in the championship with a total of 40 points. Starting comfortably and winning the first round, and in the second, only four laps were enough to achieve the lead. These two victories have established him as the leader heading into the final round of the championship, held in France on March 9th. In this junior category, new to this official competition were Chileans Esteban Lanz and Diego "Toro" Rojas, who got a well deserved 9th and 10th place, respectively.

Rodrig Thain, the latest rider to join the Gas Gas competition structure, following the agreement reached with his former team, finished the 2013 Enduro World Championship in tenth position and with a good feeling in his first official competition with the GasGas brand. Thain, riding in the premier class even led for a few laps in one of the three finals. The Frenchman showed glimpses of brilliance at the controls of the EC 300 R, despite being in the process of adapting to the new mount, and remained in the top 10 throughout the competition.

More than ten thousand people attended this 14th edition of the World SuperEnduro where Blazusiak won the championship, followed by Knight and Spanish rider Gomez on a track designed by Carlos Mas, multi-champion of Spanish Enduro, and Jordi Castells, sports director of RPM Racing.

Finally, note the special category for amateur riders, the SOLOMOTO Offroad Challenge, where Xavi Subirana surprised all attendees by leading the qualifying races. However, a fall in the final relegated him to third place, despite being in the lead for much of the race.
