Wade wins Saddleback Extreme Enduro is USA
Welsh Two Day Winner – Dan Mundell
European Championship winner – Jed Etchells
Once again it was a brilliant weekend for MRS Sherco riders, following on from the team’s successes in the recent British Enduro Championship and the British Sprint Championship.
Factory supported MRS Sherco rider Dan Mundell won the most prestigious enduro in the UK by taking an outright win at the Welsh Two Days Enduro on his Factory 2.5 SEF Sherco. This event started in 1951 and has gone from strength to strength and this year had an entry of over 500 riders.
Run by the Mid Wales Centre the event started from the iconic venue of Llandrindod Wells where the event covers over 300 miles of riding and caters for every level of rider. The Welsh Two Day Enduro is the equivalent of the Scottish Six Days Trial in the trialing world and it was a fantastic event for Sherco to take the win.
Meanwhile out in Latvia young Jed Etchells was flying the Sherco/MRS flag on his Factory 3.0 SE 2T where he finished first in the E2/3 class. Jed has come on in leaps and bounds this year and we are confident his results will keep improving during the season.
Dan Mundell – “Crossing the line of the final test at the Welsh Two Day knowing you’ve won it for the first time is an awesome feeling. I’m really happy to win both days and take the overall and E1 victory at this years edition of this beautiful race. I can’t wait for next year! A huge thanks to everyone who helped me, gave me a cheer and to the organisers.”
Jed Etchells – “Yessss!! My first European win! I’m so happy after a long tiring weekend in Latvia in the sun. On Saturday I had a good battle throughout the day and ended up second, I felt good on the bike but I knew I had a little room for improvement. On Sunday I started off with a really good test, unfortunately I slipped off on the second test and lost a few seconds but managed to gain them back during the day. It all came down to the last test and I just let loose and was able to get the win with a six second lead! Massive thanks to all my sponsors I really appreciate all the support so far this season, you guys make it possible.”
