The KoEE Ranking has been updated with the latest results from the Red Bull Romaniacs in and around Sibiu (Romania).
Looking at the updated ranking there are major changes:
- Graham Jarvis maintains his lead even though he was disqualified at Erzbergrodeo.
- Jonny Walker is closing in on Graham, just 8 points away.
- Letti made a good jump up in the ranking with his impressive 2nd place at the Romaniacs.
- A lot of top 10 Brits didn’t show up at the Romaniacs so they have lost a little ground.
A quick word about the Red Bull Romaniacs. At the initial riders briefing at the Red Bull Romaniacs mastermind Martin Freinademetz said something very interesting: “Thanks to my entire team for helping me to do make my dream come true: Doing the best race in the world!” You could feel that Martin is very serious about this and that he is willing to do what it takes to make this happen. Well, Martin, you are very close and on a very good way!
We have been there, the whole time and talked to many of the riders. All the guys we spoke to were stoked by this incredible race. Apart from some minor hiccups – which you will have at any race – nearly everything was close to perfect. And it was obvious that XVENTURE will analyse the 9th edition last week to make a truly perfect 10th anniversary in 2013.
