2013 BIOFLEX EVENT WRAP UP
In what has been his last official race for Husaberg in front of a crowd of 2000 people, Graham Jarvis made it a memorable one by dominating the Bioflex Wildwood Extreme Enduro in Australia.
And with Alfredo Gomez and Mitch Harper completing the podium the Husaberg era was closed on a high.
Returning to the event for the first time since 2011, Jarvis was intent on securing his second victory in the event, which also marked his final ride with Husaberg. But with teammate Alfredo Gomez snatching pole position in the qualification prologue it was clear he wasn’t going to have an easy ride.
Suffering the worst possible start in the three-hour main event, Jarvis was on the back foot as Gomez cleared off into the lead. Carving his way through the pack of 71 other riders, but in his usal style the Brit reeled the lead back and passed the Spanish rider on the seventh lap. Once out in front he continued to extend his lead and eventually won the race by almost six minutes.
With Gomez forced to settle for Second, it was the returned from injury Mitch Harper, the 2010 event winner that completed a 1-2-3 for Husaberg. Harper, who’s been out of action since breaking his back during a training crash in Sweden earlier in 2013, proving he is Australia's most extreme rider this year by getting back up to speed on his first ride with Husaberg TE300.
