Team GGUK Enduro were back in the British Championship Enduro Paddock at the weekend competing at the fantastic Hafren Dirt Bike Club event.
This old school timecard Enduro with two great special tests and challenging course was thoroughly enjoyed by Team GGUK riders Juan Knight and John Shirt.
Both these over 40 riders rode the Expert Veteran Class which is a very popular and well supported class.
Juan Knight who has an amazing amount of talent won every test on both days easily. His test times were also competitive compared to the Championship Class riders. His aggressive two wheel drifting style was awesome on the grass test catching and passing me easily. His bravery on the XC test was also impressive.
John Shirt was 6th on Day1 and 10th on Day2. Saturday was ok but Day2 was a bit disappointing. I always used to struggle on grassy tests but the XC test should have suited me but being honest I was a bit scared and rode within my limits.
Juan and Shirty both rode the new 2018 EC300RACING which both ran faultlessly all weekend. It’s a long time since I’ve ridden Enduro but I was very impressed with the new bike, how easy it is to ride and how amazing the KYB suspension and chassis feel. The 300 engine is very smooth and strong and just like I remember 🙂
Thanks to Bob Mullins for the pic of Juan
