KTM Enduro Factory Strong in 2012
News Monday 22th October 2012
The gap between Guerrero and Renet was narrowed to 15 points after Saturday’s round but even though Aubert took the win on Sunday, Renet finished third to Guerrero’s fourth to secure the victory.To the excitement of the many French fans, Nambotin and Meo engaged in a personal competition on Sunday and team boss Fabio Farioli said they had been so evenly matched that before the final test there had been less than a second between them. Aubert also had a great last round and was extremely fast on Sunday, Farioli said.
“This has been a great year for us,” Farioli said. He said his riders and support staff had made a great effort to vault the factory team back into the spotlight following a season of bad luck and injuries in 2011. Reflecting on the 2012 season, Farioli also praised the efforts of Giacomo Redondi, the young Italian rider who had a brilliant overall victory in the Youth Cup.
On Sunday Redondi moved up to the EJ class and also finished second.
