On 11th and 12th September the second edition of the RedBull HERO Challenge took place.
The Hard Enduro World Championship race, already a great success in 2020, was repeated by the organisers, with RedBull in the Enduro Park Poland complex and MXDG Motocross near Dąbrowa Górnicza – east of Katowice. The tests featured a mixture of SuperEnduro, cross-country and motocross elements, in addition to the characteristic passages of Hard Enduro.
Jonny Walker, riding his Beta RR 300 2T took part in the event ranking sixth at the end. The race, which lasted a total of 3 hours, was very challenging for the riders in the race, especially for the very fast sections that characterized the course.
There weren’t many ‘Extreme’ parts planned, so the race was unusual compared to the standard for this type of competition, where rocks tend to be the main feature. Jonny was not too satisfied with his sixth position, but overall he was very positive about his experience in Poland, where he was able to collect valuable information for the development of his Beta in all conditions of use in view of the upcoming races.
Next appointment with the Hard Enduro World Championship on October 1-3 for the HIXPANIA HARD ENDURO.
