BILLY BOLT FOCUSED ON HARD ENDURO TITLE SUCCESS AT GETZENRODEO
ROCKSTAR ENERGY HUSQVARNA FACTORY RACING’S BRITISH STAR BILLY BOLT SET FOR INTENSE FINAL ROUND OF 2021 FIM HARD ENDURO WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP
Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing’s Billy Bolt, together with his teammate Alfredo Gomez, are set to do battle in Germany this weekend at the all-important eighth and final round of the FIM Hard Enduro World Championship, Getzen Rodeo. For Billy Bolt it’s promising to be a huge occasion, as the Brit comes into the race as the series leader three points ahead of his nearest rival, and looking to become the first ever FIM Hard Enduro World Champion. For Gomez who won last time out at Hixpania Hard Enduro, the Spaniard is looking to deliver another race-winning performance and end his 2021 campaign on a high note.
Finishing as runner-up to his teammate at Hixpania Hard Enduro, Billy Bolt increased his lead at the top of the FIM Hard Enduro World Championship standings to three points. It’s a slender lead, but one that gives him a huge advantage going into the final round at GetzenRodeo. A win will grant the TE 300i racer the title, crowning him the first FIM Hard Enduro World Champion.
A second-place finish to championship rival Manuel Lettenbichler would result in a tiebreaker, but the title would go to Bolt by virtue of his string of consistent performances throughout the year.
Over the six events raced so far in 2021, five have awarded championship points. Bolt has finished on the podium at all but one race, where he claimed fourth at Romaniacs. His run of strong results include wins at Extreme XL Lagares, Abestone Hard Enduro, and the Tennessee Knock Out show the young Brit is at the top of his game and more than capable of claiming victory at Getzen Rodeo.
