Juha Salminen - Enduro 2 class: "It was definitely a hard race, all riders found it hard. With the five special tests each lap, eight hours of riding each day, and many long, technical time controls, there was no time to rest at all. I'm really happy with my riding, but I guess you could say I had one good day and one ok day. The first day went really well. I didn't make any major mistakes and felt good. The second day was much rougher, and that caused a few problems. I was pushing hard but I just couldn't match my speed from the first day. One podium and one fourth place result isn't a bad start to the championship so I'm pretty pleased with it, and looking forward to the next event in Portugal."
