Husqvarna Enduro Team prepare for GP of Argentina

The Husqvarna Enduro Team by CH Racing’s participation in the Enduro World Championship continues this weekend with Matti Seistola, Lorenzo Santolino, Ricky Dietrich, Juha Salminen, Alex Salvini and Romain Dumontier competing in the GP of Argentina, round two of the 2012 EWC series.

As the final leg of the championship’s visit to South America for a second consecutive weekend the event will take riders to a never before scene location. In contrast to last weekend’s Chilean terrain, the tracks and trails in and around San Juan after crossing the Cordillera of Andes , will present new arid and rocky challenges.

The 50km lap, which features one extreme, one motocross, and one enduro test, will be ridden four times each day.

Enjoying a winning start to his participation in the 2012 Enduro World Championship having topped the Enduro 2 class on day one in Chile Juha Salminen starts the GP of Argentina second in the E2 championship standings, just three points behind class leader Ivan Cervantes. Looking to continue his good form, Juha will again start at the front of the E2 class, which, like in Chile, could well prove to be extremely important in the expected dusty conditions.

Juha’s Enduro 2 class mates Alex Salvini and Romain Dumontier will also be looking for success in Argentina. Salvini, who after a frustrating opening day placed a creditable third on day two, will be looking to lift himself up from his current position of sixth in the E2 standings. Likewise Dumontier is also determined to improve his results in what will be only his second event as a ‘senior’ class rider.

In the Enduro 1 class all team riders will be looking to improve on their results from the GP of Chile. Spain’s Lorenzo Santolino delivered the best performance for the Husqvarna Enduro Team with a fourth place result on day one. Frustratingly mistakes on the second day prevented Santolino repeating his impressive results.

For Enduro 1 class team leader Matti Seistola the GP of Argentina will offer the chance to put right to disappointing results at the season opener. Like many riders, Matti saw his day one result spoiled due largely to catching slower riders on the enduro test. Day two saw an improvement with Matti placing fifth but the Finn was anything but pleased with his results and is determined to finish on the podium on both days in San Juan, Argentina.
