JARVIS AND GOMEZ SHARE PODIUM AT RED BULL SEA TO SKY


DOUBLE PODIUM FOR THE HUSABERG EXTREME RACING TEAM AT THE RED BULL SEA TO SKY IN KEMER, TURKEY.

The Husaberg Extreme Racing Team continued its run of strong results in Hard Enduro with Klim's Graham Jarvis and Alfredo Gomez finishing second and third respectively at the 2013 Red Bull Sea to Sky. Entering the event as the defending champion, Graham Jarvis had his sights set on collecting his third consecutive Red Bull Sea to Sky victory while continuing his unbeaten run of form in the 2013 season. But after a bad start in the main event, the Husaberg rider was unable to reel in eventual race winner Jonny Walker to claim the win.

Taking a front row start for the Mountain Race main event following a third place result in the Forest Race qualifying heat, Jarvis was confident of running up front. But a bad start hampered his progress in the opening stages of the race and the defending champion was left playing catch up.

“It’s tough to see my winning streak at the Red Bull Sea to Sky come to an end,” admitted Jarvis. “My start just wasn’t good enough. I was inside the top five but I underestimated the amount of dust that was kicked up. At times I couldn’t see and had to slow down and ride safe. Unfortunately that gave Walker a big advantage on me.”

Working his way into second position, Jarvis set his sights on reeling Walker in. Closing in on his rival during the extremely technical Dark Canyon section, the Husaberg rider momentarily took control of the lead. But with a mistake on the following climb, Walker slipped past him again. Unable to find away around him in the final sprint to the Olympus Mountain summit, Jarvis was forced to concede defeat.

“At the Dark Canyon he started to come back to me,” explained Jarvis. “I managed to get into the lead but then I picked the wrong line on an uphill climb and he passed me back. A couple of times he made some mistakes but the course was very one lined on the mountain stretch and I just couldn’t find a way past.

The Husaberg Extreme Racing Team’s next race will be the Extreme Lagares in Portugal on October 12/13.
