Heading the standings as the leading British trophy team rider, Jordan Rose secured Gold Medal standard at the International Six Days Enduro held in Germany last week.
Riding the TM 250 2-stroke machine he has campaigned so well during the 2012 season, Jordan, the 2012 British Enduro Sprint Champion, finished an impressive 14th Overall and was the leading British rider in the highly competitve E2 class, a class which is home to many of the worlds best riders in the discipline of Enduro racing. In the World Trophy Team contest Jordan helped secure 8th overall for Team Great Britain along with his 5 team-mates.
With the exception of day 1 when his bike was running a fraction lean in the conditions, which was easily resolved by fitting a bigger main jet, Jordan had a trouble free week and didn’t so much as break a sweat with maintaining his machine apart from the usual tyre changes and a new set of brake pads.
Jordan commented “Yes, it’s been a reasonably good week and whilst I am satisfied with my performance I feel I could have done a bit better. I have had a very heavy cold all week and found it difficult in the long tests so I rode at a steady pace. When I tried to push I simply could not breath. Mechanically, my TM has been unmatchable, once we re-adjusted the initial carburetor settings I have had a trouble free week and the bike has been perfect as it has been all season. Thanks to Adrian, Mike and ‘Mini’ Mike for their preparation. The event itself has been good, some easy days, some difficult and long days, but well run and organised.”
Congratulations to Jordan on a job well done and an amazing 2012 season on his TM 250 EN 2-stroke machine.
