SuperEnduro Poland – Practice Report
David Knight heads timed practice as the Atlas Arena in Poland gears up for round two of the SuperEnduro World Championship.
Getting round two of the championship off to a strong start, Sherco’s David Knight set the fastest time during the morning timed practice. Beating home favourite Taddy Blazusiak (KTM) by two tenths of a second, Knight grabbed a slight mental edge over his rival on a track that’s proving tough and technical.
Hoping to continue his winning streak from the opening round of the series in Liverpool, Blazusiak set the second fastest time. But with Super Pole still to come, Blazusiak has one more chance to claim first gate pick.
It’s only his debut ride with Beta, but already Danny McCanney is looking fast and sharp. Second in the qualification heat – McCanney’s not a seeded rider in the series – the Manxman went on to set the third fastest time in timed practice.
Husqvarna’s Alfredo Gomez was fourth fastest with KTM’s Jonny Walker fifth. Completing the top six for Super Pole, Mathias Bellino (Husqvarna) took sixth.
Spain’s Dani Gibert – third in the championship standings after round one – won the qualification race for non-seeded riders but was unable to transfer that speed into the time practice and placed ninth. Gibert is better known for his race craft and will be one to watch for in all three finals.
In the Junior qualification Giacomo Redondi (KTM) beat Jamie McCanney (Husqvarna) across the finish line to win while Sandra Gomez topped the Women’s class.
