On The Pegs May 2018 - Volume 3 - Issue 5 | Page 35

On The Pegs Round five of WESS is the Red Bull 111 Megawatt, your signature race. How does it fit within the series? “Our race has grown so much in the last couple of years and it’s great to see it as part of WESS for 2018 — it’s a perfect fit for the series too. Red Bull 111 Megawatt is labelled as Hard Enduro but it steers towards Cross- Country and even Beach Racing due to the sandy, multi-lap format of Sunday’s main event. Saturday’s qualifications are essentially special tests so it even ticks the Classic Enduro box a little too. The Red Bull 111 Megawatt is WESS all in the one race.” Vol. 3 Issue 5 - May 2018 P 35 I race to win championships, so if I’m doing something I’m in it to do it right, at maximum effort. I’d love to become the ULTIMATE ENDURO CHAMPION at the end of this year.” The World Enduro Super Series kicks off with Extreme XL Lagares, Portugal on May 11-13.

May 31-June 3 Erzbergrodeo “With points scored down to 250th (Austria) position for each round it means that June 8-10 Trèfle Lozérien AMV even if you have a bad race you can (France) still make points. Of course you need July 24-28 Red Bull Romaniacs to be close to the front all the time (Romania) to fight for the overall title, but it also Sept 8-9 Red Bull 111 Megawatt means certain discipline specialists can (Poland) stay in the championship hunt even if Oct 26-27 Gotland Grand National some races don’t exactly suit them.” (Sweden) Nov 10 Red Bull Knock Out Finally, what would it mean for you (The Netherlands) to become the 2018 World Enduro Super Series champion?
