Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing’s Graham Jarvis has claimed victory at the 22nd running of the Erzbergrodeo Hare Scramble, the third time he’s won the gruelling extreme enduro classic.

Once out front and with the event’s well-known technical sections ahead of him, Jarvis never stopped extending his race lead to eventually reach the finish in a time of two hours and 19 minutes.

“This feels amazing,” Jarvis said. “Erzberg is a race I had marked out as one I wanted to win this year and I’ve done that. It was an amazing race, I got a good start and managed to start making my way forward through the pack.

“In one of the first sections in the woods I found a really good line and managed to get up a technical climb ahead of some of the others. After that I just tried to relax and do what I know I can do through the more technical sections. Everything went well but I knew I had to stay focused. This has been a real team effort.”

Jarvis finished more than 33 minutes ahead of runner-up Cody Webb, with third placed Alfredo Gomez a further three minutes behind.
