Spain’s Josep Garcia (KTM) has put on a dominant display at the Hawkstone Park Cross Country in Great Britain to claim a start-to-finish victory for round six of the World Enduro Super Series (WESS).

Firmly stamping his authority on proceedings, the Red Bull KTM Factory Racing rider continued on his winning performance from Saturday’s qualifying Sprint Enduro to charge to the top step of the podium in Sunday’s Original Fast Eddy Cross Country, securing his first win of the 2018 WESS series.

It was a memorable race for British riders as fan favourites Nathan Watson (Red Bull KTM Factory Racing) and Billy Bolt (Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing) secured podium results at their home race with second and third respectively, as Bolt became the new championship leader with two rounds remaining.

Fourth and fifth were credited to Taddy Blazusiak (Red Bull KTM Factory Racing and Jaume Betriu (KTM), as the World Enduro Super Series now heads to Sweden for Gotland Grand National Cross Country, marking the penultimate round of the championship.
