Meo Clinches French Enduro 1 Championship
Antoine Meo was crowned the French Enduro 1 Champion at the penultimate round of the season in Langogne.
Less than one week after his victory at the final round of the EWC in France, Meo carried on his winning ways on his KTM 125 EXC. Continuing to prove that there’s no substitute for talent, Meo blasted his way to a double win.
Confidently trailing early pacesetter Marc Bourgeois (Yamaha) on day one, Meo bided his time in second position before attacking hard during the closing stages of the race to win day one. Repeating his winning result on day two, he wrapped up the championship with one round to spare.
Despite taking a double win in Langogne, Husaberg’s Pela Renet wasn’t able to secure the Enduro 2 title. However, with a 30-point lead over Sherco’s Julien Gauthier, he’s all but assured it next time out at Vorey-sur–Arzon.
Still hurting from his crash during the GP of France, Christophe Nambotin gutted out a heroic performance to win the Enduro 3 class both days. With maximum points gathered, the Frenchman kept his title hopes alive. Third on day one and then second on day two, Mathias Bellino (Husaberg) has a mathematical chance of winning the E3 title if Nambotin fails to make the final round due to injury.
Claiming his eighth consecutive victory of the season, Husaberg’s Loic Larrieu won both days of the Enduro Junior class in Langogne while visiting Jessica Gardiner (Sherco) took top honours in the Women’s class.
