METZELER at the GP of Estonia strengthened its leadership in the FIM EnduroGP World Championship with its MCE 6 DAYS EXTREME tyres

A very successful weekend of wins and podium positions for METZELER, with the riders Steve Holcombe, Alex Salvini, Jamie McCanney, Loic Larrieu, Eero Remes, Andrea Verona and Davide Soreca in the round which took place in Tallinn.

Tallinn (Estonia), 4 June 2018 - In the capital of Estonia, Tallinn, the Red Moto Motoclub played host to the Enduro World Championship Circus with the fourth round of the FIM EnduroGP World Championship. It was a very successful weekend for METZELER and for the riders supported by the tyre brand, who excelled throughout the entire weekend in three spectacular special trials.

The riders supported by METZELER continue to dominate the FIM EnduroGP World Championship, and in Estonia the most prominent figures were Alex Salvini (Team JET Zanardo) and Steve Holcombe (Team Beta Factory Enduro). The Bologna-born rider won on the second day of the EnduroGP and re-enforced his position as leader in the Premier class. He was the protagonist of an exciting battle which lasted the entire weekend against his ex-team mate Steve Holcombe, who currently holds second place overall.

Despite coming second twice in the E1 class, Jamie McCanney is still the provisional leader. The English rider for the Yamaha Outsider Team, following his fall in the first special trial which led to a serious contusion to his right hand, gritted his teeth throughout the weekend and achieved excellent results.

In the E2 class, on both days of racing, all three riders on the podium were equipped with METZELER tyres. On Day 1 the first place on the podium went to Eero Remes, followed by Alex Salvini and Loic Larrieu. On Day 2 it was the turn of Alex Salvini who gained the upper handover Loic Larrieu and Christophe Charlier.

A splendid double in the E3 class for the METZELER-supported rider Steve Holcombe. The rider for the Beta Factory Enduro Teamcontinued to affirm his role as class leader with a 22-point lead over Christophe Nambotin, and a 24-point lead over his compatriot Dany McCanney.

It was also an excellent weekend for the Team mates Andrea Verona and Davide Soreca, who fared well in the Junior class. On Day One, Andrea Verona, with METZELER MCE 6 DAYS EXTREME tyres, picked up second place in Junior 2 on Day 1, while David Soreca took to the podium twice in the Junior 2 and Junior classes on Day 2.

The fifth appointment with the FIM EnduroGP World Championship is scheduled for Saturday 30 June in Pietramurata for the Italian GP, on the splendid METZELER Offroad Park racetrack.
