Husqvarna domination at wec opener in spain


Husqvarna dominated the first enduro GP of 2011, held in Ponts, Spain last weekend, where the Husqvarna CH racing team celebrated four Class victories and seven podium finishes, which is an outstanding start to the season.

Juha Salminen was victorious on both days on his TE250, demonstrating that he is one of the main title favourites in the E1 class. Only his fellow countryman and team-mate Matti Seistola threatened to make life difficult for Juha, who twice mounted a serious challenge to Salminen in some of the special tests.

In the E2 class, current world Champion Antoine Meo made light work of this season opener, winning on both days on the TE310 in the E2 class, as well as getting the best overall results of the GP, clearly demonstrating that new TE310 delivers the best combination of power and sweet handling.

Still in the E2 class, Italian rider Simone Albergoni, also on a Husqvarna TE310, came fourth in the overall standings, making him the top Italian rider in this first GP of 2011.

Frenchman Sebastien Guillaume made a consistent start to his 2011 campaign on his WR300, scoring a podium finish on day one and then finishing fourth on the final day. The action now moves across to Portugal, for the second Enduro World Championship Grand Prix of the series, this coming weekend

I'm not sure who is riding this bike but it is raced state side by a few top guns... Seems local riders like the bike but the top PROs are a different story ...

Husky has a 350 2t out there somewhere that has yet to be seen ...

      KTM has held a unique record in 250SX since 2011—it’s the only brand to have won in every season. Kawasaki did not win in '15, Honda did not win in '17 (and so far, it has not done so this season), Yamaha had no wins in '13, and Suzuki did not have any in '11 nor between 2014-'17, while Husqvarna did not get any wins between '11 and '15. This consistency also yielded KTM's 40th victory in the 125/250 supercross classes, thanks to Jordon Smith's first win in 2018 at last Saturday night's Daytona SX. The Austrian KTM got its first triumph in small-bore supercross back in 2001, with the South African Grant Langston. The most successful KTM winner is Marvin Musquin, who won 11 times. So far, KTM has collected 22 wins in the West Region, while Smith's win was KTM's 18th victory in the East Region. KTM also took its second Daytona victory; Musquin got the first one in '15.

      Have an old book sitting on the shelf and thought I up load some picts.  Waiting for the smoker to do its thing so have some time to kill.  
      I got this from my so called stepdad, he had a type setting company and I am not sure how/why he acquired it.  I will ask him next time I see him.  Not sure if he did any editing, or it was just a gift to him.  I believe this was done for a Italian mfg, not sure.  Anyway, some cool picts bring back mems.  Excuse the camera it is not the best, most are painful to look at so will only upload a few.

      I'm sure some of you have already seen him wearing this kitten stuff but I though It was just on the back of his helmet.   Guess thor persuaded him (or paid him) to put this stuff on.  Or Muskrat is a just a weird guy.
