Maxxis-sponsored rider win FIM EnduroGP World Championship
Beta Boano and Maxxis-sponsored rider Brad Freeman has added another title to his name after crossing the finish line in first place on Maxxis MaxxEnduro tyres and winning the Enduro GP Junior Class title at this year’s Maxxis FIM EnduroGP World Championship.
For the enduro world championship, Freeman used MaxxEnduro tyres, designed to perfectly fit enduro conditions. The tyre features side blocks, which provide accurate steering and handle aggressive cornering in the muddiest of conditions.
Freeman commented: “What a day. What a season. I can’t believe it, I was having a great day, doing exactly what I needed to do, and was about 30 seconds ahead. I was ready to calm things down and just make sure I got to the finish when three corners into the final enduro test a stick went through my rear brake and jammed it on. It kept sticking on, I lost about 15 seconds.
“Then I lost my rear brake all together. I rode the final extreme test with no rear brake, which was interesting. It pretty much all came down to the final cross test and I went for it. I gave it everything. I’m so, so happy. From missing the opening round of the series in Finland I can’t believe I’m world champion.”
Maxxis’ managing director, Derek McMartin, added: “Enduro riders like Brad, choose Maxxis because they know that they are getting high quality, durable tyres that complement the conditions of the toughest enduro tracks, and we are really proud of that reputation. That confidence goes both ways, because we really believe in Brad and his ability to ride faster and smarter than his competitors, which he showed at this year’s Maxxis FIM EnduroGP World Championship. We would like to say a really big congratulations to him on the win.”
