This weekend there was the Enduro GP in Spain,  the Women’s European MX Championship in Denmark and the second round of the Bridgestone British Masters in Wroxton, UK.

Bad news for Yamaha Johansson rider Eero Remes. He crashed on Saturday and broke a rib and sprained his thumb. He was still able to finish Saturday and save some points on Sunday. 8 hours on the bike with a broken rib myst have been excruciating. Bad news also for Australian rider Wil Ruprecht, he experienced some issues with his body and completely lost all energy. The team has send him to a sports clinic in Belgium for a closer examination on what is going on with things.

Young 125 cc rider Hugo Svard keeps improving and now sits 4th in the World Championship.

In the UK the Rob Hooper Yamaha Team had a great weekend with Taylor Hammal taking the big win in the MX2 class. 

In Denmark Martine Hughes took the win in the European Women’s 125 cc Championship
