Brad Freeman on the EnduroGP podium for Beta Factory Racing in Romania!

Over the weekend, the Enduro World Championship stopped in Bacău, in Romania for the third stage of the 2024 season.

Welcoming the riders was a course of over 50 km, specially designed by the Motoclub X-Cape, which was divided into three tests to be repeated four times a day: in the opening, a technical and fast Cross Test of 3.3 km length characterised by hard and dusty ground; followed by a natural Extreme Test of 2 km inside a forest with hard ground, alternate with treacherous parts with stones and roots; in the closing, an Enduro Test inside a very technical and fast woods, made particularly challenging by the steep climbs and hard ground full of roots.

Brad Freeman confirmed that he is steadily recovering after his injury and was the author of a high level performance. The rider ruled the category and won both Saturday and Sunday, thus reclaiming the leader’s red plate. In the EnduroGP Class the British rider also showed his great potential and finished in 4th and 3rd position on both days. Brad now finds himself 1st in the E3 Class and 5th in the Championship Standings.

Nathan Watson also had an excellent weekend, taking the 2nd position of his Class both on Saturday and Sunday, also earning himself a good 6th and 4th position in the Enduro GP Category. Nathan is now 3rd in Class E2 and 4th in the Championship Standings.

Brad Freeman:

“I am slowly recovering from my injury and the results in the EnduroGP and E3 Class are satisfying. We are back on top in the E3 Class and I managed to get on the podium in the EnduroGP Class. Now we will try to do well at the Italian GP.”

Nathan Watson:

“The feeling with the new bike is improving from race to race and even here in Romania the results are promising. Twice second in the E2 Class and good performances in the EnduroGP. We are working in the right direction.”

Also worth mentioning are the good performances of the OX Moto team riders: Theo Espinasse, 5th in the E1 Class on both race days, and Leo Joyon, 2nd on Saturday and 4th on Sunday in the Junior 1 Class. Excellent performances also for Matej Skuta of Team KBS, who finished in 3rd position in the Junior 2, and 4th in the Junior, on both race days.

As far as the Youth Category is concerned, Team Atomic Moto’s riders Clement Clauzier and Maxime Clauzier finished 4th and 5th respectively on Saturday. Also in the Youth Category, excellent performance for Alex Puey, Beta Trueba Team, who finished 6th on Saturday and 3rd on Sunday. Luca Piersigilli, Team Entrophy, instead finished 7th on Saturday and 6th on Sunday.
