Rockstar Energy Husqvarna’s Colton Haaker has successfully defended his SuperEnduro World Championship title, winning the 2017 series with a third-place overall result at the final round in Albi, France.

Entering the championship decider with an 11-point advantage over his closest challenger Alfredo Gomez, Haaker did exactly what he needed to do to secure his second SuperEnduro title in two years.

Red Bull KTM teammates Gomez and Jonny Walker went 1-2 for the round, however third on the podium was enough for Haaker to claim the world championship. It was Walter who won the opening final in France, before Gomez took control to win finals two and three.
