The 2nd round of the Enduro World Series took place in County Wicklow in Ireland, in front of a crazy audience. The riders were expected to ride 47 km in a day without lifts with a total of about 1760m of denivelation and 7 timed specials similar to DH.
Adrien Dailly of the Team Lapierre Gravity Enduro Republic won its second victory in U21 brilliantly and finished 18th in the overall classification.
Nicolas Vouilloz’race has been more complicated. He ended at the 21st place, a disappointed results compared to its recent results. He says "I felt it was going to be complicated, unfortunately it has been confirmed with a 22th place in the overall classification! In addition to not be very fast, I’ve lost about 30 seconds in the SP3 because I derailed! "
It is the Irish Greg Callaghan who won at home this 2nd round against Justin Leov (2nd) and Richie Rude (3rd).
Hopefully the third round of the Enduro World Series that will take place next weekend in Tweed Valley in Scotland will be better for Nico and will allow Adrien to confirm his leading position in the U21 category.
