NATIONAL ENDURO – ROUND 4 FINALE
Brett Swanepoel made sure Husqvarna Racing had a special weekend as the National Enduro championship culminated in the sweltering hot and dusty lowveld town of White river. Swanepoel surged to an unprecedented 8thNational Championship title on Saturday after what he described as a real testing weekend of racing.
“It was a real tough track and the heat was brutal” he said. “We only had one goal this weekend and that was to bring home the championship title, it was a great team effort and I’m pleased to claim the E2 class title” he commented and went on to say that the team and his bike were faultless for the entire season.
Kyle Flanagan who raced alongside Swanepoel for the last couple rounds after joining the team mid-season said: “Saturday I made a mistake at the beginning of the race and went on the Junior loop for a bit so I played catch up for the majority of the 1st lap, I was feeling pretty good until about halfway through the 3rd lap when the heat caught up to me.” He added that the heat was really a killer and that by the end of the race he was dehydrated. “I am happy with the ride and result on Saturday considering but glad I made it to the finish line after another scorcher of a day and all in all happy with the weekend and pumped for Brett with winning a well-deserved championship.”
Husqvarna Racing extends their thoughts and sup
port to the family of Evert Grobbelaar who passed away this weekend at the event.
