For the first time in its history, SuperEnduro comes to Sweden. But this first ever event is sure to be a thrilling end to an amazing season.
The stakes are high, and the Sparbanken Arena in Lidköping offers a very technical track which will allow the ultra-motivated riders to finish this season in style!
We will open the doors of the Sparbanken Arena at 17:00 LT tonight to welcome the lucky audience who will attend this fifth and final event of the 2018 SuperEnduro calendar!
For the riders, after 4 intense rounds in this World Championship, both the final podium positions AND the title of World Champion 2018 are up for grabs!
In Juniors, Kevin GALLAS (D - Husqvarna) leads the Championship with a near certainty of taking the World Champion title, given his huge lead over his competitors. But there will be a big battle for 2nd place in the standings, played out by Emil JUSZCZAK (PL - KTM) and Diego HERRERA (CL - TM)! But Kyle FLANAGAN (RSA - Yamaha) will unfortunately not be present to defend his fight for the podium.
For the Prestige riders, the title challenger Cody WEBB (USA - KTM) will have to face Taddy BLAZUSIAK (PL - KTM) who took points out of him in Bilbao, and could very well snatch the victory and the title if Webb makes the slightest mistake! There is therefore a lot of pressure and tension surrounding this evening’s race for the title, and also for 3rd place in the standings which will likely be decided between Brits Jonny WALKER (GB - KTM) and Billy BOLT (GB - Husqvarna). However, do not forget Colton HAAKER (USA - Husqvarna), who is capable of performance like the one he famously demonstrated in Madrid 2016.
