The challenging track inside Telf?s skating hall asked for a mixture of speed and finesse. Lettenbichler, who pit pundits regularly mentioned as their race favourite, showed his skills in every moto along the way. He then used his proven trial capacity at the first obstacle of the main event (giant tractor tyres) to take immediate command - and never looked back.Telfer In(n)duro**
