Racing Husqvarna Official Results Service '07 - Dirt Rider Magazine

CH Racing Husqvarna's Seb Guillaume continued to shine in the Enduro 3 class of the '07 World Enduro Championship by finishing in second position on both days of GP of Slovakia, the penultimate round of the '07 WEC series. With consecutive second and third place results at the GP of USA and the GP of Canada Seb's double runner-up result in Slovakia is his highest finishing result of the '07 series so far with his 'home' round of the championship taking place in France in two weeks time. Frustratingly for the CH racing Husqvarna team while it was a great weekend for Guillaume it was a disappointing one for team riders Bartosz Oblucki and seven-time world champion Anders Eriksson who after strong results on day one both failed to finish day two. For Oblucki day two was cut short when a track side banner became wrapped up in his rear wheel while Anders withdrew due to bike handling problems.Although pleased with his double runner-up results in the Enduro 3 class it was a case of close but not quite good enough for Seb on day one of the GP of Slovakia as he entered the final test of the day level with current E3 world championship leader Ivan Cervantes. With there having been little to separate the two riders throughout the opening day, and with Seb having won four of the nine tests, the Frenchman rode faultlessly throughout the final special stage yet was still unable to top the E3 class podium. With Cervantes having recorded a blisteringly fast time Seb finished second, 12 seconds behind the Spaniard.Hoping to go one better on day two Seb fell twice on the day's first extreme test and placed a lowly 16th in class, which was far from the start he'd hoped for. Dropping to a provisional sixth in class as a result of his mistake he steadily worked his way back to the runner-up spot and despite being unable to stop Cervantes winning once again claimed a well deserved result.With current Enduro 1 class leader Juha Salminen not competing in Slovakia due to injury CH Racing Husqvarna rider Bartosz Oblucki was one of a handful of riders hopeful of a winning result in Krompachy. Disappointingly for Oblucki it was not to be however as the Pole finished in fifth on day one before withdrawing on day two after he lost over four minutes in one special test when a track side banner got caught in the rear wheel of his TE250. Despite his day two disappointment day one started well of Bartosz as he recorded the fastest time in the E1 class on the opening motocross test before going on to challenge for a podium position. As the day continued and rain made conditions increasingly slippery Bart' failed to perform at his best and slipped to fifth 40 seconds behind eventual day winner Cristobal Guerrero.In the Enduro 2 class Frenchman Nicolas Deparrois had a great weekend in Slovakia equalling his highest finishing result of the season with a solid sixth place position on day one. Enjoying the Slovakian special tests aboard his WR250 Nico' finished as high as fourth in class on the motocross test and performed consistently throughout the day. On day two the French rider again performed well, despite dropping one position to seventh. At his quickest on day two on the extreme test Nico' placed just 25 seconds behind the sixth placed E2 class rider having finished as the second highest two-stroke competitor on both days.In the Enduro Junior class Marc Bourgeois performed well but saw a small but costly mistake on day one stop him from finishing higher than fourth. On day two, despite winning the first timed extreme test, Marc dropped one position to fifth finishing just under one-minute behind the EJ class winner.The CH Racing Husqvarna team will next be in action at the final round of the '07 World Enduro Championship in France on September 15-16.Seb Guillaume: "I really enjoyed the first day. Conditions became really slippery and I had a great battle with Ivan Cervantes. It was very, very close. We entered the final test almost on the same time but Ivan was incredibly fast. I could have won if I had got the fastest time, but like I said Ivan was incredibly fast. It was disappointing to get so close to winning but I'm pleased with second. "I crashed twice on the first extreme test on day two, so things started in the worst possible way. It dropped me down to sixth in the E3 class so I am pleased that I was able to work my way back up to second. I was pleased with the way I rode but Ivan was so fast on the enduro test. I'm looking forward to my home race of the championship in France now. I hope there I can finally win."Nicolas Deparrois: "The first day went really well for me. I finished sixth, which equalled my highest result of the season so far. I had a really good feeling with my bike all day and really enjoyed the special tests - you could really attack the motocross test and the enduro test was very challenging. I had one crash on the extreme test but apart from that things went well."Things went pretty well also on day two. I finished in seventh position, which I was pleased with. I liked the conditions and the special test, I really enjoyed the race."2007 World Enduro Championship Rnd 7
