Top 3 After GP In Sweden For Rosie Rowett
The Rieju Factory Team concludes the Sweden GP on a high note as Rosie Rowett secures an impressive position in the top three.
Rosie Rowett had an impressive performance at the Sweden GP, winning the SuperTest and placing 2nd on Friday and 4th on Saturday. As a result, she is currently in the provisional Top 3 of the World Championship. Meanwhile, Léo Lé Quéré placed 9th in E3.
The FIM EnduroGP World Championship’s fourth round was hosted in Skovde, Sweden, with the Rieju Factory Team, including Léo Lé Quéré and Rosie Rowett, participating. The competition began on Thursday with the afternoon SuperTest. This test featured a two-on-two format that combined parts of the track with natural obstacles and another area through the forest. Rosie Rowett achieved the best time in the women’s class, earning her first world victory at the controls of the MR.
Rowett was thrilled with her result on Friday and gave it her all on the track, which was unusually dry and dusty, making the special stages quite fast but dangerous. She finished this first intense day in second place on the podium. On Saturday, she maintained her good form and attacked again, fighting with the leading group, but a small mistake made her lose her podium position, dropping to fourth place.
After this Scandinavian round, Rosie Rowett is in third place in the Women’s World Championship, 10 points behind the second, with only one race to go in Portugal from 6 to 8 October. Mireia Badia won’t be attending the event in Sweden after breaking her arm last week. The rider has already undergone successful surgery, and we wish her a speedy recovery.
Léo Lé Quéré kept the same positions he achieved in Finland in the top Enduro3 class. He finished in tenth position on Friday and improved to ninth on Saturday. After competing in the first four rounds of the season, Léo is currently in provisional ninth place in the overall World Championship standings, just four points behind eighth.
“I started the weekend strong, taking the win in the SuperTest, continuing the good feeling on Friday with a good second place. On Saturday I started well again and fought all the way to the end for third place, but a small mistake cost me time and I dropped to fourth. All in all, it was a very good weekend”.
Léo Lé Quéré:
“End of 3 weeks of racing in a row!!! There have been good things and not-so-good things, but we’re still moving forward and we’re not giving up. Now it’s time for a break to recharge our batteries and get our strength back. Thanks to all the team for their support”.
