The 2018 Swedish GP in Lidköping, finale of one of the most exciting season in SuperEnduro!
For the first time in its history, SuperEnduro comes to Sweden. But this first ever event is sure to be a thrilling end to an amazing season.
The stakes are high, and the Sparbanken Arena in Lidköping offers a very technical track which will allow the ultra-motivated riders to finish this season in style!
We will open the doors of the Sparbanken Arena at 17:00 LT tonight to welcome the lucky audience who will attend this fifth and final event of the 2018 SuperEnduro calendar!
For the riders, after 4 intense rounds in this World Championship, both the final podium positions AND the title of World Champion 2018 are up for grabs!
In Juniors, Kevin GALLAS (D – Husqvarna) leads the Championship with a near certainty of taking the World Champion title, given his huge lead over his competitors. But there will be a big battle for 2nd place in the standings, played out by Emil JUSZCZAK (PL – KTM) and Diego HERRERA (CL – TM)! But Kyle FLANAGAN (RSA – Yamaha) will unfortunately not be present to defend his fight for the podium.
For the Prestige riders, the title challenger Cody WEBB (USA – KTM) will have to face Taddy BLAZUSIAK (PL – KTM) who took points out of him in Bilbao, and could very well snatch the victory and the title if Webb makes the slightest mistake! There is therefore a lot of pressure and tension surrounding this evening’s race for the title, and also for 3rd place in the standings which will likely be decided between Brits Jonny WALKER (GB – KTM) and Billy BOLT (GB – Husqvarna). However, do not forget Colton HAAKER (USA – Husqvarna), who is capable of performance like the one he famously demonstrated in Madrid 2016.
