At the second day oft he first round of the FIM European Enduro-Championship in Fabriano / Italy the lokal hero Alessandro Battig took the overal-victory as he did the first day:
Again his countryman Maurizio Micheluz was a little time the fastest, but then, this Husqvarna-rider made himself some mistakes in the following enduro-test and finished only fourth behind his team-member Matteo Pavoni, the reinging overal-champion, in the end of the day.
Second behind the winner Battig became a new young gun: Lorenzo Macoritto, starting in the juniors-class „E2/E3“ with the big Husqvarna 2-stroke-bike.

It was a continuation of the italian championship – last years overall champion Matteo Pavoni was fighting against his countrymen Maurizio Micheluz and Alessandro Battig.
In the beginning not so strong, Pavoni increased in the last five from twelve specialtests – but Micheluz and Battig has been to far away, he could not reach.
Battig was riding this year a 450cc Kawasaki instead of the smaler 250cc from last seasons: This helped him to win the overall at this first day in Fabriano and the first day of this seasons championship.
Micheluz became second overall and won the new 250-2-Stroke class, while the former Junior Pavoni was third overall and won the over 250 cc 2-stroke class.

While the man had to do four laps with each 65 km, the women had to ride only three: Former (2015) Champion of women-class, Sanna Kärkkäinen from Finland, won at the least. „But it was quite hard sometimes: I have had to overtake so many riders, because I was starting so late,“ she commented in the evening. But next competition she will have a better starting-position, because of her championship-points.

Ab big number of scandinavian rider had been coming to the kick of the championship. But most oft hem had no chance for training at home, with still ice and snow from Finland over Sweden to Norway.

Romoli Roberto
Ready, steady, go …
The next season of Enduro riders in the European Championship starts on 14th /15th of April 2018 in Fabriano, Italy (200 km north of Rome). As in all the years, there are a total of four different competitions all over Europe.
This year, the classification has received a revision: For the riders, there are now four different displacement classes, divided into two-stroke and four-stroke engines.
There is the class up to 250 cc two-stroke and over 250 cc two-stroke.
Analogously, the four-strokes were also divided into: up to 250 cc four-stroke and over 250 cc four-stroke is the new classification.
In the 125-class for the youngest riders, the age has been increased to 21 years. In the normal junior-classes, which are up to 23 years, the two engine capacity classes as last year.
Remained are the "seniors" and "ladies". Completely new is the electric bike class: Here one does not (yet) fight for a title in the European Championship, but the FIM Europe would like to keep the door open for upcoming developments. The number of special stages, the route and the length is completely up to the organizer.

The riders have no choice in the protective clothing: As internationally appointed, a back protector and chest protection is required: this must also comply with the test numbers EN1621-2 or EN 1621-3.

The starting signal for the new season will be on April 14th 2018: Then there will be three laps over sixty kilometers through the grounds and with three different special-tests every lap.
Last year overall champion, the italian KTM-rider Matteo Pavoni will be there to defend his title: Last year still riding in the junior class with the small displacement, the Italian is on the KTM in the class E2 / E3 with the big displacement in Fabriano. He is the big favorite this weekend.

With 18 registered women, the ladies' class is more represented than ever!
