The 2014 World Enduro Championship came to a thrilling conclusion on Sunday at Brioude in central France with two KTM factory riders fighting it out for the remaining title to be settled, the E3 class.  Australian Matthew Phillips eventually prevailed over team veteran Ivan Cervantes of Spain, winning by just nine points. Both Phillips and Cervantes were still nursing injuries.

The KTM factory team’s Cristobal Guerrero of Spain also put in a huge and heroic effort in E1 to finish the final round after fracturing his finger on Saturday. Guerrero rode with his finger splinted and strapped, managing to pick up five additional points for his eleventh place on Sunday to save overall third.

Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki’s Dean Wilson Claims 250cc Title at Steel City

thumb_Dean-WilsonIrvine, Calif. (September 5, 2011) – Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki’s Dean Wilson clinched the 2011 AMA Motocross 250 class championship with a 1-1 finish at the penultimate round of the series at Steel City Raceway in Delmont, Pa. Monster Energy Kawasaki’s Ryan Villopoto extended his points lead as he looks to add an AMA Motocross Championship title to the FIM World Supercross Championship he won in May. 

After putting together some of the most exciting racing of the season, Villopoto finished on top of the podium with a 1-1, including a last-lap, last-turn pass in the first moto which helped him extend his points lead to 14. Teammate Jake Weimer also put together a couple solid motos, finishing fifth overall with a 6-6 result. Tyla Rattray finished fourth overall with a 4-4 result in the 250 class. Blake Baggett finished sixth after going 5-8, while teammate Broc Tickle salvaged 12th with a 37-5.

The Champion is Crowned
Wilson came out swinging at Steel City Raceway and threw down the fastest lap time in his class aboard his Kawasaki KX™250F during qualifying, proving he was going to be difficult to beat. In the first moto, he grabbed the holeshot and gapped the field by almost 10 seconds for the win. In the second moto, Wilson had to work a little harder to claim his prize. After the gate dropped he pulled into second and began looking for an opportunity to pass the leader. He paced the leader for a few laps, testing different lines around the course, and then made his move. Wilson’s pass stuck and once he got out front he never looked back. He took the checkered flag and secured the 2011 AMA Motocross Championship in the 250 class.

“It feels absolutely amazing to win the championship,” said Wilson. “I felt really good after I put down the fastest lap time in practice. The track was really slippery out there. It’s one of those tracks you really have to ride in a high gear and try not to use too much effort. In the first moto, I got the holeshot and gapped the field for the easy win. In the second moto, I had to battle with Eli (Tomac) for the checkers. I didn’t get the best start, but I got lucky, found a hole and went right through it. The best part of the second moto was when I rode past the mechanic’s area and everybody was cheering and the pit board said ‘2011 MX Champion’ and I got goose bumps from that point. I almost didn’t want to win at Steel City because my parents weren’t here, but I am still happy I won. I’m lucky to have such great parents that support me and let me do what I love. I came from amateurs in 2009 and didn’t go pro until 2010, so I think what really helped me get to this level so quickly was being on the Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki team. It’s the best team out there for transitioning amateurs. It’s a winning team. I’m just so happy, this really is a dream come true for me.”
