VIDEO. King of the Hill 2015 Hard Enduro DAY2 Highlights

A new day in Ghioroc – Romania, a day with rain and cold wind, a day similar to 1st edition of King of the Hill 2013, when the rain was pouring.

First at the start is KTM ZonaPadock’s Mario Roman. The Spanish rider must open the track for the first day in the woods following the GPS and the marking tapes.

PRO riders have a 60km long track with 12 special sections prepared by track manager Marius Dulceanu. Roots, rocks, logs, heavy mud and the rain made the day a nightmare to all riders, espacialy for HOBBY class, riding for over 9h on the bike!

Riding flat out and with no mistakes all day, Mario Roman manages to get the second time of the day behind Martin Volny from Czech Republic.

In third place, Andrew Noakley in 9 minutes and 30 seconds behind the leader and in 4th Lars Enockl form Austria.

Unfortunately the first day in the woods was not so good for Wade Young. Spending 3 hours on the bike, KTM Kredito24’s rider had some mechanical problems cracking the oil level sight glass. From here the South African rider had only one misiion: to bring the bike safe at the finish line without damaging the engine.

The best Romanian rider is Josza Norbert-Levente riding for BGS Motorsport. Starting from 29th position the young rider comes in 7th position with 3h and 23 seconds on the bike.

Riding all day togeder and helping each other on the hard parts of the track, Blake Gutzeit and Ben Hemingway close the day in 8th and 9th position.

Nightmare for HOBBY Class, over 70 riders are not able to pass the finish line because of the hard track.

Leader of HOBBY class is Zdenek Cyprian from CZE followed by Maciej Loboz in second. 3th position goes to Teodor Kabakchiew. Top5 is completed by Grzegorz Swidizinski and Vlastimis Stupka.

Best Romanian rider in HOBBY class is the young rider, Nagel Joanan. He finished the day in 3hours and 49 minutes.

O noua clasa la King of the Hill 2014: Princess, dedicata fetelor

Analizand situatia pilotilor inscrisi anul acesta la King of the Hill 2014, organizatorul, clubul HECA a decis ca o noua clasa sa fie introdusa in formatul competitiei, dedicata fetelor.

Veronika KOTH 2014Veronika Dallhammer

“Prietenii mi-au povestit cursa de anul trecut… am spus ca trebuie neaparat sa incerc  King of the Hill! Sper ca vremea sa fie mai buna anul acesta sa ma pot bucura de traseele nesfarsite pe motocicleta mea, un KTM Freeride,” ne povesteste Veronika Dallhammer, una din cele 4 fete inscrise in competitie. La o scurta analiza, Veronika a terminat anul trecut Romaniacsul la clasa Hobby si a primit medalia de argint la Red Bull Sea to Sky… devine campioana Austriei la Cross-Country si ocupa locul 2 in finala Europeana, XCC Baboons. Toate astea, in timpul liber, cand profita de faptul ca e pe sol, ea lucrand ca insotitoare de zbor.

A doua pe lista fetelor este Sabrina Grillitsch, din Austria. “Imi place mult Hard Enduro-ul, de aceea vreau sa vin la King of the Hill 2014 si sper sa am un rezultat bun la finalul cursei,” spune Sabrina, castigatoarea Prologului Six Days Crazy Job din Bulgaria si ocupanta locului 2 in clasamentul general al fetelor in anul 2012. Chiar daca o problema mecanica la motocicleta a impiedicat-o pe Sabrina sa ia startul in 2013 la Ghioroc, nu renunta si vine hotarata sa puna stapanire peste regatul King of the Hill 2014.

Anna Schmolzl si Michaela Polivkova se vor alatura Sabrinei si Veronicai in lupta pentru marele premiu.

Asadar, traseul clasei Princess va fi comun cu traseul clasei Squires (Hobby), dar cu un clasament separat si cu premii surpriza oferite de organizatori. Nu uitati, Vineri 4 Aprilie 2014, King of the Hill isi aduna cavalerii in Piata Avram Iancu din Arad pentru un Prolog spectaculos si plin de actiune cu obstacole atent alese! Sambata, 5 Aprilie dam startul zilei 1 de Hard Enduro! Publicul va putea fi in mijlocul actiunii in zona Cetatii Siria, urmand ca Duminica sa ne mutam fortele asupra Cetatii Soimos. Seara vom alege marii castigatorii al titlului King of the Hill 2014 in Ghioroc – Pensiunea Konak.


Marcel Teucher lupta pentru cucerirea cetatilor King Of The Hill 2014 Hard Enduro Tournament

Marcel Teucher, pilotul MX-Point.de revine anul acesta pentru a invinge dealurile Ghiorocului pe un traseu dur, in prima competitie de Hard Enduro a sezonului 2014 din Romania.

Dupa experienta de anul trecut, Marcel nu se da batut, chiar daca norocul nu a fost de partea lui in prima editie din 2013. “La Ghioroc am avut primul contact cu o cursa de hard-enduro. Am avut de invatat multe avand in vedere ca King Of The Hill are sa devina o cursa extrema.”

Marcel ne-a povestit cum o singura cazatura pe traseul primei zile de concurs l-a facut sa piarda competitia. “Dupa urcari si coborari lungi si abrupte traseul iar da intr-o coborare aproape imposibila. Aici am inteles ca am subestimat dificultatea traseului. Am cazut peste ghidon si motocileta peste mine. Din pacate capacul rezervorului s-a deschis si cizma s-a umplut cu benzina creandu-mi mari arsuri.”


Pilotul MX-Point.de este mai pregatit ca niciodata sa faca fata editiei cu numarul doi, King Of The Hill 2014. Va spunem si de ce: in Germania, Holger Dettman – de asemenii un pilot prezent la Arad anul trecut si un bun prieten de-al nostru, organizeaza pentru prima data o cursa de Endurocross in Vellahn. Elita superenduro-ului, Knight, Bolton, Letti, Nemeth aliniati la start au facut ca experienta lui Marcel sa fie una unica, una in care isi masura puterile pe un circuit de endurocross cu marile legende ale acestui sport. “Endurocross-ul este unul din cele mai dure si grele moduri de a te da cu motocicleta de enduro,” spune Marcel. “Dupa cursa din Vellahn am zis ca fac pauza sa imi recapat energiea pentru sezonul 2014. Dupa o pauza de 3 saptamani din cauza unei raceli am decis sa urc iar pe motor.”

Acum Marcel Teucher isi incepe antrenamentele pentru inca un eveniment de endurocross in Lodz… da in Lodz pe Atlas-Arena in cadrul Campionatului Mondial de Super Enduro unde reuseste sa ajunga pana in finala! “Atmosfera din Polonia este una de nedescris. Nu m-am gandit niciodata ca voi ajunge in finala alaturi de cei mai buni piloti ai lumii, dar dupa ultima runda de calificari visul mi-a devenit realitate! In finala, 10.000 de fani ai enduro-ului acopereau urale motoarele turate la maxim… la start aliniati: Walker, Knight, Blazusiak si eu… am fost atat de incantat si foarte fericit ca am reusit sa fac turele pe circuit alaturi de Profesionisti.”

Marcel spune ca asteapta cu nerabdare editia 2014 a King Of The Hill si spera la o clasare in Top10 la finalul acesteia. Nu uitati, deja aproape 200 de piloti sunt inscrisi, inchidem inscrierile la 250 de participanti. Inscrierea King Of The Hill Hard Enduro 2014 se face pe siteul HECA.ro la adresa: http://www.heca.ro/inscrieri
