Mario ROMAN and Wade YOUNG at the podium at Alestrem!
Sunday 22 January 2017
The Alestrem Xtreme Enduro race took place this past weekend, it was the first race of the 2017 season for the Sherco Factory racing team.
On Saturday in the qualifications Mario and Wade both set a good rhythm and ended up in first and third place. In the prologue that evening they finished fifth and sixth.
On Sunday both riders started out in excellent rhythm and remained in contact. At the start of the second lap, Wade was in the lead and Mario was fourth, the gaps began to widen but the Sherco riders were in the right place! The third lap was the most difficult, Mario made a big effort and passed the leader, and engaged in a big fight with Jarvis, the two riders will fight until the finish. Jarvis managed to take the lead in the final moments of the race, but Mario secured a good second place for his first race at the helm of his Sherco 2 stroke.
Wade finished on the third step of the podium in this his return to competition after his injury at the SeaToSky. It was a good performance for Wade who was only able to train for three weeks! A very nice start to the season with this double podium!
The next event will be Hell's Gate in Italy.
