Mario 1st, Graham 2nd and Travis 3rd. Not sure where Wade finished but he had some bike problems.

They are focusing on that new Enduro World Championship. Hell’s Gate is not part of that series
That only starts in May (Bassella was not one of the events either). Looking at the events it looks like that series was created by redbull. So there will probably be no KTM teams at the roof either

But Hard Enduro is on fire this year and so is Roman. So many Indians but there can only be one Chief.

At least 6 that I cant think of that will be at most races that has the skill to win.
Grimbo
Wade
Travo
Roman
Gomez
Walker and many many more.

And all of them are mostly competing for 1st indian as Grimbo seems to still be the Chief and will continue to do so for some time to come. Interestingly enough 2 2nd places for Grimbo, both to Roman and both night races? Maybe time for Grimbo to have his eyes tested?

The unspoken ones are usually mechanic or manufacturer error . . .
Fair point!
Can't remember which race, but hasn't he had a mechanical problem (recently) before? Which prevented him from doing better.

Think it was national in PE . . . or capish region. 300EFI.

Look the 4T's are at the top of their engineering cycle and i honestly cant see them getting much better in the next couple of years however the conventional 2T is a lot more " reliable " in that sense hence ALSO a reason for most top competitors using them but with the introduction of TPI's that " reliability " I refer to could very well be on par if I manage to explain myself correctly here. . .
