After a long wait the HESG 2021 finally opened in Crimmitschau. With some international participants as well as well-known personalities like Kai Haase or Tim Apolle, the high standard of riding could be maintained in the third year of the series.
The victory was finally secured by Leon Hentschel, who had a long-drawn-out duel with Apolle. The decisive factor was a challenging slope on the second lap, where Hentschel managed to overtake his rival. Even though the latter was able to catch up afterwards, it was no longer enough to overtake the champion of 2019. The podium was completed by Vaclav Nedved, who secured his first German podium with this race.
At the second Enduro World Championship race in Italy, Brad Freeman managed to extend his lead with a remarkable victory. After a long back and forth with Australian Wil Ruprecht, the latter finally had to admit defeat as he ran out of steam.
The only German, Manuel Lettenbichler, had to stop the race early due to a technical defect. Just like his fellow Hard Enduro riders Billy Bolt and Taddy Blazusiak, Lettenbichler approached the race more as a warm-up than as a serious competition with the intention of winning.
Last weekend, the starting signal for this year's cross-country season was given in Markelo in the Netherlands. After a long break from any competitions, the participants encountered a 6 km course on and around the Circuit de Herikerberg, where the 2-hour heats of the various classes were held.

After the Dakar Rally didn't go too well for the Monster Energy Yamaha Rally Factory Team, Ross Branch convinced us at the opening round of the FIM Cross Country Rally World Championship and secured the first place. Matthias Walkner and Adrien van Beveren completed the podium.
Ross Branch: "All in all it was a fantastic week in Kazakhstan. I'm happy with the win. Before the race I focused on navigation work and that worked here. I opened stages and stayed in front. I can't expect more than that. The goal (today) was to keep the lead. I did a good job, then the final stage was cut short. It's good to be racing again. The team did a great job on the bike."
