May 13th, 2019
For the second consecutive year Santiago de Compostela, in northern Spain, hosted the Enduro World Championship with a two-days race full of twists and turns.
The weekend started with heavy rain and cold, but Saturday and Sunday were sunny: Alex Salvini and Team S2 Motorsport Sembenini Honda-RedMoto faced a tough race with high temperatures.
Three tests in this GP of Spain: one extreme on a hard ground, one cross with marshes and one soft enduro, for a total of one hour and a half of race interspersed with long passages between pine and eucalyptus forests.
After the double success in the GP of Portugal, on Friday evening Salvini started the Spanish weekend with the second position in the Supertest, getting a double second position on both the days of race close the victory despite a contusion to his right knee in the first special stage on Saturday. This result confirms his as leadership in the E2 standing.
Next race is the fifth round of the Enduro Italian Championship, scheduled on 1st-2ndJune in Sant'Angelo in Vado (PU).
“Positive weekend with two second positions in my class. Yesterday I was so close to the victory, but I'm happy with Redondi’s first seasonal win. It’s important to be competitive every weekend: apart from day1 in Germany, my worst result is the second position: it’s not bad! Now we have a few weeks off and then we’ll be back in action for the Italian Championship”.
Gino Sembenini - Team Manager
“After the amazing weekend in Portugal, in Spain the premises were positive. Unfortunately, Alex crashed immediately in the first special test hitting his right knee hard. This compromised his performance, but he still managed to get two second positions. Now we think about the next races, aiming to the top positions fighting for the victory”.
