The fourth stage of the Montenbaik Enduro Championship powered by Sram 2013 took place last Friday and saturday with 300 enthusiastic riders. This was the events second time in Valdivia but the big difference this year was that the race was over two days.
The race day started on Friday with 4 fun stages, these stages were less technical and more pedally and provided a great warm up for the big day on Saturday.
In contrast, Saturday was full on with a 50 km track featuring 4 liaison stages climbing almost 2000 meters, and 4 special stages with over 1500m of downhill, all the riders finished exhausted.
In the end it was the Elite Martin Flaño who took the win with his Brand new Giant Trance Advance 27.5”, with a time of 27:15 minutes, in second place was local Sergio Antecao with a time of 27:44, followed by the third place Claus Plaut with 27:55 minutes.
This year in Valdivia we doubled the amount of riders, and everybody is getting excited and prepared for Round 1 of the EWS that Montenbaik Enduro will host next year in Nevados de Chillan.
We look forward to the final round on December 7th at a completely new track in the town of Puchuncavi where all 300 entries are already sold out.
