After the winter test and two rounds of the Italian Championship, the Honda RedMoto World Enduro Team is ready to face the first two rounds of the World Championship, scheduled on April 9th-10th in Agadir, Morocco, and the following weekend in Gouveia, Portugal.

The Honda RedMoto World Enduro Team riders will race with the new Honda-RedMoto CRF 250R Enduro and CRF 450R Enduro: Alessandro Battig will ride in the E1 class, Davide Guarneri in E2, while the young “Under 23” riders Giacomo Redondi and David Soreca will line up in EJ.

Oscar Balletti will be absent, recovering from the surgery to the right tibia and fibula fractured during the training in January in Sardinia.

Alessandro Battig has improved his performance and the feeling with the new bike in the first two rounds of the Italian Championship, confirming the objective to successfully defend his 2015 title.

At his debut in the World Championship, the former motocross rider Davide Guarneri made a great job of development on his Honda-RedMoto CRF 450R Enduro.

Also ready for the start of the season are Giacomo Redondi, fresh from four victories in the two Italian races, and David Soreca, the youngest of the team.

The race in Morocco will start on Friday in the late afternoon with the special prologue test. On Saturday and on Sunday the race will start at 0900hrs.

“I'm a rookie and the new rule that allow to check the track two days before the race will surely help me. I’m confident because I worked well in the past few months, reaching the right pace. We also made excellent progress improving the feeling with the new Honda CRF 450R Enduro”.
