Australia's Matt Phillips this weekend will be racing for the EnduroGP world title at the final round of the Maxxis FIM EnduroGP World Championship in France.
After five months and seven rounds, EnduroGP is heading to Cahors (France) this weekend for the final round of the 2016 series. An event that promises a thrilling end to the championship.
With only two riders so far crowned champions, in the Junior and FIM Youth Cup 125cc classes respectively, the Grand Prix AMV of France is set to see no fewer than five riders crowned world champions. All eyes will be on the coveted overall EnduroGP title, as well as the Enduro1, Enduro 2, Enduro 3 and Women’s classes.
Australia’s Matthew Phillips holds a 15-point advantage over Beta’s Steve Holcombe and 17 points on TM’s Eero Remes. The championship is well and truly alive and if Holcombe and Remes perform at their best the Aussie will have to fight every step of the way in order to secure the EnduroGP title.
Possible of having an impact on the final EnduroGP championship finishing order, French riders Mathias Bellino, Loïc Larrieu, Antoine Basset or Jeremy Joly and Romain Dumontier will all be looking to end their championship campaign in the best possible way in front of their home crowd.
In addition, KTM riders Taylor Robert from the USA and Nathan Watson from Great Britain and Beta’s Johnny Aubert and Alex Salvini could also play an important role in the outcome of the EnduroGP championship.
