Maxxis-sponsored rider Brad Freeman has added the Enduro GP Junior Class title to his growing collection of silverware following a stellar performance in the Maxxis FIM EnduroGP World Championship finale.
This season Brad has been using the manufacturer’s increasingly popular MaxxEnduro tyres, which are both FIM approved and street legal. The MaxxEnduro offers excellent grip even in the muddiest of conditions, with the optimised side-block arrangement providing accurate steering and aggressive cornering performance.
Upon sealing the title, an elated 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.”
The MaxxEnduro is available to the UK motorcycle trade from Cambrian Tyres in a number of sizes.
