The 2020 New Zealand Enduro Champion from Christchurch had previously raced this track this track in 2018, about one hour’s drive from Berlin, during his debut year in the World Championship.
“Because of this, I knew it was going to be a good race,” he said.
“In 2018 I hadn’t really liked the test, but his year was completely different. Three days of rain leading up to the event and consistent rain all weekend made for challenging conditions. The tests were what I would call proper enduro tests, 10 minutes of slippery exposed roots loads of rock and logs, I was happy to say the least!
“Saturday started off slow, with me losing some time, a little problem with the mapping on the bike, but we got that sorted and was on to push in the second lap.
“By day two the track had deteriorated rapidly and proved to be a tough day! One line you had to charge and not lose your balance in the deep never ending ruts. I set the fasted times all day and wrapped up the German championship with six wins from six starts!
“It’s been a great time in Germany. Big thanks to Marcus Kehr and Sven for preparing my bike, and to the rest of the guys from Sherco Germany. We’ve raced hard pack, sand, and mud and my Sherco Serf300 never skipped a beat once!
“Now onto Portugal and the World Enduro GP rounds.”
