After monopolising the podium of Overall Classification on the opening round of National Enduro Championship 2021, disputed at the beginning of March in Passirano (BS), AIROH has been the protagonist of the second race, too. The race took place on March 27th , Saturday, and on March 28th , Sunday, in Custonaci (TP), near the famous seaside town San Vito Lo Capo. One of the most beautiful “two-day” race ever disputed in the last seasons, thanks to the organisation of Custonaci Enduro Cup: a roadway that is 188 km long, with four laps and three different special technical races on rocky ground, stone quarries and hard soil, clocked 12 times on Saturday and 10 times on Sunday.
AIROH riders who were brilliant in the top ten of Overall Classification: Thomas Oldrati third and fourth, Antoine Magain fourth and seventh, Daniel Mccanney seventh and sixth, Andrea Verona ninth and eighth. A fact to remark is the absence of Steve Holcombe, out for the injury of left thumb he suffered in the race of Passirano, after a violent crash against a stake in the last special race. Not very good race for Brad Freeman: sixth in Overall standing on Saturday and ninth on Sunday, the English didn’t feel at ease on the stones and the hard ground of the special tests.
In the single classes, in 250 4T class, Andrea Verona ended up twice second, Samuele Bernardini again third and Diego Nicoletti was fourth.
A bitter-sweet 300 2T class for Rudy Moroni twice third because of some falls, just close to the victory. In this class, Gianluca Martini was brilliant, too, twice second.
450 4T class was ruled by Thomas Oldrati, back to races after the injury of the right hand, operated last February 18th to reduce the wounds and speed up his debut on Honda-RedMoto CRF 450RX Enduro. It couldn’t be better than this: Oldrati showed all his talent by fighting against the pain of the hand, special after special, till the moment when he gave AIROH the highest place on the podium.
In Junior class, splendid second and fourth position for the young Manolo Morettini, dealing with no good conditions of the left knee, that was injured and operated last year.
Youth class marked by the young Beta rider Gabriele Pasinetti, very good at conquering the second position.
The next meeting with the Italian Enduro Championship is in Piediluco (TR) on April 24th and 25th.
