Jonny Walker wins hat trick at the Red Bull 111 Megawatt
The fourth edition of the Red Bull 111 Megawatt was the biggest and best yet, with Motorex sponsored, reigning champion Johnny Walker taking on hundreds of riders to defend his title and succeeding for an incredible third time.
Jonny Walker, from the Motorex sponsored KTM Enduro Factory Team, was the fastest qualifier for the 2017 running of the event and was the clear leader for much of the main race, with just one technical issue slightly hampering his performance by a few seconds during the third and final lap. Nevertheless, showing his character and strength Jonny battled to the finish line ahead of Mario Roman and Graham Jarvis, to secure his third title.
Designed to challenge even the most confident riders, the course, laid out in the PGE Coal Mine in Belchatow, Poland, led riders through the longest track to date and featured massive hill climbs, with the difference between the highest and the lowest point in the track totalling 150m.
Ecstatic with his latest win, which was almost clutched out of his hands by the technical issue, Jonny Walker comments: â€œGetting a third Red Bull Megawatt win feels amazing, it certainly helps put the disappointment of Romaniacs and Erzberg behind me. It was a lot closer at the finish than I wanted, but a win is a win so Iâ€™m really pleased I was standing on top of the podium. Generally, things went really well â€“ I lead during the first two laps and felt really comfortable. I had an issue with my rear mousse on the final lap, so I couldn't push like I wanted to but half way around the final lap I had more than a one-minute lead. I knew I was going to get caught and I got a little nervous right before the finish, but things worked out good in the end. Thankfully I managed to get through the final rock section and across the finish line ahead of Mario. Megawattâ€™s been good to me in recent years so to get a third win here is awesome.â€
