Danny McCanney took a convincing outright victory at round 1 of the 2019 British Enduro Championship, held at Bovington Camp this past weekend.
The TM Racing ‘Factory Team’ rider and his EN 300 ES-2S machine set some incredible times on the two tests, which were composed of an MX style ‘sand’ test and a ‘loamy’ Cross country test. Danny put himself further and further clear of the competition by setting the fastest times on every single test, some by very impressive margins.
At the end of the 7 hour event and after completing 10 tests (4+6), Danny had given himself a commanding lead on time to take the overall win.
Also competing at this event was Lasermaster TM rider, Olly Lawey, also riding an EN 300 ES-2S machine in the Expert class. Olly put together a great day and even after an impact on the CC test, still continued on, pushing hard till the end. Olly took 3rd place in the Expert E3 class for his efforts.
Gethin Francombe, on his TM EN 300Fi ES-4S machine, was unfortunately forced to ride back to the pit area and into retirement after the second test. High speed contact with a tree left Gethin in severe discomfort, after his leg took the brunt of the impact. In obvious pain, Gethin limped himself back to the check and called it a day to seek medical attention.
We would also like to wish Lasermaster TM rider, Josh Gotts, all the best. Josh is currently on the sidelines with injury and will have surgery today.
Well done to all involved.
