It was race day #3 at the Turkish Riviera and the riders lined up at the beach for the start of the Mountain Race at 09:00AM local time. A total of 219 riders from 24 countries exposed themselves to one of the greatest challenges in the sport of Extreme Enduro - going from Sea to Sky all the way from 0 to 2,365m. Almost all of the rising stars gathered in the first start row - to name a few: 20-year-old Wade Young (ZAF, Sherco) who most of the spectators would have put their money on to win the main event. The 19-year-old super talent Billy Bolt (KTM) from the UK who had bad luck having to quit the Beach Race while leading with a massive gap and who rode uncontrolled during the Forest resulting in a crash and a 5 minutes’ penalty to miss the podium. The 18-year-old reigning SuperEnduro World Champion Manuel Lettenbichler (DEU, KTM) who won the Beach Race on race day #1 at Red Bull Sea to Sky Edition 7.
