Jamie McCanney Claims Enduro 2 Class Victory In Germany2017-10-22 14:26
Rounding out the 2017 Enduro World Championship season in the best possible way, Outsiders Yamaha Official Enduro Team's Jamie McCanney has secured Enduro 2 class victory on the second and last day of racing at the EnduroGP of Germany. Collecting an impressive total of 13 podium results from the 2017 series, the WR250F powered rider secured a strong runner-up result in the 2017 FIM Enduro 2 World Championship final standings.
Including a long enduro test in the forest outside Zschopau, a treacherous extreme test and a fast motocross test, the EnduroGP of Germany was a challenge for all competitors. Showing impressive speed aboard his WR250F machine, Jamie McCanney was a strong contender for the Enduro 2 class victory on both days of competition in Germany.
Leading the provisional class standings for the majority of day one, the Manxman suffered a mistake in the penultimate test and had to settle for third. Despite overnight rain making the tracks even more challenging on day two, Jamie took the lead in the 250cc class from the very first test and never looked back.
Wrapping up the season with an impressive total of five victories Jamie was just six points short of the 2017 Enduro 2 World Championship title. Demonstrating the potential of his WR250F machine in a variety of conditions this season, the Manxman finished second in the 2017 Enduro 2 World Championship.

3rd Day 1 / 1st Day 2
"It's been one hell of a year for me. We had a great battle with Josep [Garcia] and it was a very tight fight for the title. I felt this was one of the strongest, if not the strongest, seasons of my career. This was my first full year without an injury or any other issues so to finish it off with a win is great. The terrain here in Germany was different to what we've been used to this year but it's been a great end to the championship. Getting second in the world in my first year with the Outsiders team is not bad at all. We've all worked hard this season and we remained in the battle for the title until the very last moment. I'm looking forward to continuing this form and I will do my best to bring the title home next year. I feel there's more to come from me. We will continue working hard with the hope of coming back stronger next year."
