2013 International Six Days Enduro Day 2 Results

Following an impressive performance in Day 1 of the 2013 International Six Days Enduro held in Sardinia, an Italian island in the Mediterranean Sea, Team France kept the pace going during Day 2.

KTM’s Antoine Meo, the 2013 E1 Enduro World Champion, appeared comfortable on the KTM 300 EXC in the E3 class, helping Team France ascend ahead of Australia and USA.

KTM Factory team boss Fabio Farioli said Meo had made a giant leap from Day One to Tuesday’s competition after contesting the opening day with only a short time to familiarize himself with the bike.

“Antoine was much more confident today,” Fairoli said. “He was riding a different style altogether.”

Team France now has a 4:32 advantage over second placed Australia and USA, with KTM riders Mike Brown, Kurt Caselli and Charlie Mullins now third. France went into the competition as title holders and they are already looking like they are on their way to another trophy

Meo was fastest E3 rider on Day Two and leads the progressive times in this six-day classic. KTM factory teammate Cristobal Guerrero of Spain was fastest E1 rider and also leads his class after Day Two. Their KTM factory teammate Johnny Aubert is also riding well for Team France. He was second fastest in E2 on Day Two and is closing the gap to Australian Daniel Milner.

Following are reports of the other classes:

Junior World Trophy – In the category dedicated to young riders, the struggle between France and Italy is still open, with Britain ready to take advantage of their mistakes. Today the protagonists of the first two teams were Loic Larrieu and Giacomo Redondi, now 9th and 22nd in the absolute ranking. Mathias Bellino is 15th, Moroni 30th. The standing is headed by France, but the gap on Italy is only 66 seconds. The British, for their part, count on the 20th and 26th places of Jamie and Daniel McCanney and they try to remain attached to the first.

This is the ranking: 1st France  (5h15’31”), 2nd Italy  (+ 1’06”), Great Britain (+2’39”).

Women’s World Trophy – Between women, Australia placed three riders in the first five places  (1st Jessica Gardiner , 2nd Tayla Jones , 4th Jemma Wilson ), leaving the other two to the swedish Jessica Jonsson – third – and Emelie karlsson. In the general ranking, Australia leads the way (04h04‘17’’) followed by Sweden (+ 3’20’’) and France (+12’05’’).

Riders again faced extremely dusty conditions except for one test where a short burst of rain had turned the dust into mud. Organizers have added two additional tests into Day Three that represent a bigger challenge and riders will contest six tests in all, four of which will be the same as Days One and Two but in reverse order.
