The fifth and penultimate round of the 2013 South African National Enduro championship took place in Patensie in the Eastern Cape. It was a sunny, warm and dry day with some gusty winds at time.
Wade Young won all six of the special timed stages making this his third victory for the year and clinching the E2 (200cc) Championship title with one more National Enduro in hand.
The 45km loop consisted of two special stages a 9km and a 7km which riders had to complete three times. Wade Young claimed both the E2 (200cc) class as well as the Overall win quite convincingly by 154 points (by almost 3 minutes).
“I am very happy with my result, the route was great and the organisers did an awesome job. The riverbed section was a little too long but otherwise the route was perfect it had a little bit of everything in it.”, said Young.
This was Wade’s first National Enduro on his new 2014 Husaberg FE 250: “I am so happy with my bike, the 2014 Husaberg has so much more power and the handling is incredible.”
Wade leaves on Thursday 19 September 2014 for the International Six Day Enduro event that takes place in Sardinia, Italy from 30 September – 5 October 2013. “This will be my last international event for 2013 and I am looking forward to it and hope to do my country and sponsors proud!”
Wade has the final National Enduro to compete in on 19 October at Matatiele before he’s off to Lesotho for the Roof of Africa event in November.
