Day 2 started at 4 a.m. for PRO class riders, and Manuel Lettenbichler has to prove that a 2-hour penalty doesn’t knock him down so easily!
The KTM Factory Racing rider, even if he leaves from 17th place today, after a day with over 6 hours on the pegs, puts 16 minutes in front of Graham Jarvis!! Something incredible, at such a high level!
Jarvis chose to go safe today and probably did not throw himself into the fight with Manuel, but even so at the end of the day, he goes through some tricky sections in very high peace. Now the former Husqvarna Factory rider has also escaped that emotional threshold, he last year injured his knee badly, on day 2 of Romaniacs. In the end, the King of the Carpathians has a 9-minute advantage in the general rankings!
Teodor Kabakchiev – ECONT remains in second place, but with a lot of pressure on his shoulders, the young man from Bulgaria is threatened by 4 other riders, Mario Roman, Trystan Hart and GASGAS Factory Racing rider Michael Walkner.
Chris Birch is after day 2 the leader of the Silver class, with almost 1 minute, but the fight with the French riders is not over yet! Adam Giles and Fabien Poirot are not going to give up so easily!
For Viorel Costin – Master Bike Cluj rider, the day did not go as expected, today reaching the finish 17th, which takes him out of the Top10 and throws him 14th Overall. We cannot say the same thing about Andrei Botoaca and Mani Gyenes, they climb 10th and 11th places respectively in the Overall.
At Bronze, Marius Achim Popovici comes third and climbs to 2nd place overall, ahead of legend Matthias Walkner – KTM Factory Racing’s rider, but he is with a KTM 450 Rally!
Ovidiu Nistor, increases his advantage on the second day, he is undefeated so far at IRON Class!
