A dramatic end to the European Tour

The final weekend of the European Tour wasn’t short of drama as we had dream debuts, mechanical problems and spectacular races.

We have two Enduro champions with differing stories from this past weekend as Joe Harvey and Thomas Favolini have reason to celebrate despite both struggling in the series’ final race.

After finishing Saturday’s race in third, Harvey extended his lead over Jordan Lambert to an unassailable tally. He followed yesterday’s success with sixth before being unable to complete the final race with an injury.

While Harvey claimed the title, Favolini was the weekend winner even after being struck with mechanical failure in the final outing thanks to two race wins early in the weekend.

The Offshore World Champion made a splash on his first appearance on the tour and will head into the off-season with an AquaX win.

Success this weekend in the 300 AM class was Thomas Batisse who battled back from third yesterday to win both of Sunday’s meeting. He headed into the weekend leading Claude Vangensbeck and the two replicated their standings in the weekend results. Dave Coe completed the overall podium while Richard Cable claimed third on the weekend.

Toni Luciano was in fine form in the 200 AM class as he had a clean sweep of race victories on his way to the European title. Paul Handley and Dave Lee finished second and third respectively with just one point separating the pair.

The Ski Lites weekend victory went to Nicolas Devys who won a pair of races on his way to top spot. Roger Pujol was second and Simon Gill, the overall winner of the Championship, came in third.

A fiercely contested Spark class came down to just four points, Philip Salobir claimed two race wins and a second to take top spot over Jordi Tomas Jimenez and the top three was completed by Escrig Laurent.

In the Ski Juniors, Joan Sevil Genoves was victorious in two of the four races to beat Baptiste Calmels to the title by eight points while Esteban Lopez completed the top three just one point further back.

In the Kawasaki 1500 competition it was Simon Raoulx that came out on top with three race victories to his name while Philip Salobir, winner of race two, took second over Jeremy Vohlgemuth.

And the two-race Port Balis Cup was won by Alejandro Molina with a 100 per cent record. Second in both races was Andoni Gutierrez for the runners-up spot and Altzol Arakistain was third with a pair of third-place finishes.
