HP motor racing, Mattighofen, A

What a race! A first-class result for the HP2 Enduro and Simo Kirssi, who was once again able to demonstrate his exceptional talent and the outstanding performance capacity of his motorcycle.

The Flying Finn achieved an outstanding podium place in the final race of the Austrian Cross Country Championships in Mattighofen. Right in the ´lion´s den´ just a few kilometres from the KTM headquarters, the Finn put in an excellent start and was always up in the leading group throughout the race.

The technically highly demanding circuit in Mattighofen included long stretches of narrow forest path riddled with roots and stones. In front of a large crowd of race fans, Kirssi controlled his BMW HP2 Enduro with enormous concentration and perseverance around the winding track, once again showing the potential of the big enduro bike in difficult conditions.

However, on the last steep climb two lapped riders were blocking his path and Bernhard Walter - until then in third place - managed to overtake him. The multiple German enduro champion Sascha Eckert once again lined up as the second HP2 rider. He struggled more than Kirssi with the winding track and finished the race in 15th place.

The race was won by Austrian Cross Country Champion Rudi Pöschl. The next race for BMW Motorrad Team Offroad will be next Sunday´s final of the German Cross Country Championship in Eckolstädt near Jena.
