Alex Salvini (S2 Motorsport Sembenini Honda-RedMoto) took a dominant victory in the second round of the Italian Enduro Championship, with Honda riders on the podium across the classes.
Held in Arma di Taggia, the event organised by the Motoclub Sanremo, the course was 50km long and repeated four times with one Cross test on the beach and one Extreme and one Enduro test in the Ligurian Apennines, a few minutes from the sea.
Salvini was in dominant form in the 450 4T class with the Honda-RedMoto CRF 450RX Enduro. Victory came from winning 12 special tests (and second in just one), which was also enough to place him second in the overall results.
Davide Soreca (Honda RedMoto Lunigiana Team) joined Salvini on the podium in third place. IT was a solid performance for the young Italian, after recently undergoing surgery on his left meniscus and the ruptured right-hand radius.
Team mate Davide Guarneri also had a good event in the 250 4T class finishing on the podium in third and featuring in the top-five of all tests.
Also in the 250 4T class, Thomas Oldrati (Honda Racing RedMoto World Enduro Team) climbed onto the second step of the podium, claimed sixth overall and closed to just one point behind the leader in the championship standings.
Meanwhile team mate Christophe Charlier put in strong performances over the 13 special tests to claim an overall position of fifth and take third place in the foreign classification.
The next event for the Enduro teams will be the third round of the Italian Championship in Pontremoli (14 April).
