The Brazilian Bruno Crivilin raced on this weekend two more stages of the World Enduro, this time in Estonia. Once again the Brazilian made two Top 10: on Saturday was eighth and on Sunday he ended the stage in seventh.
Continuing his journey through the World Enduro Championship, the capixaba Bruno Crivilin got another two important results this weekend. The race that took place in Tallinn, Estonia, was very hard and very crowded, since by the proximity with Sweden and Finland, it counted on several pilots of those countries, always very competitive.
On Friday the Supertest took place, with a very technical special and several artificial obstacles, with a great public accompanying the disputes. Crivilin ended up crashing and losing some time, but still got the eighth place (fourth place in his category). In the fall, the bike ended up falling on the pilot and the hot discharge ended up burning part of his arm and back.
From this stage, a partnership of the Orange BH KTM Racing team was established with the Zanardo/Jolly Team – one of the best on the circuit – to assist the young driver at the World Championship.
If the high quality structure gave the pilot tranquility, he still had to face, along with a difficult route, the constant pains throughout the weekend because of the burn. Always walking among the first in the specials, he finished the first day in the eighth place in the category.
“I tried to keep riding at a good pace, but the pain caused by the burn, especially in the second half of the race, made me feel a bit uncomfortable, so I could not concentrate properly and made mistakes without being able to get the rhythm I wanted. The test was very hard. I could not find myself on the bike and ride as I wanted. I ended up finishing eighth on Saturday knowing it could be better.”, said Crivilin.
On Sunday the rider managed to get a better rhythm during the race, but he still had to overcome the difficulties of the course, which if it was difficult, became worse with each lap.
“The specials were very bumpy, because of the more sandy soil, but along with the sand there were also many rocks, large stones, and in the course of the race a lot of stone and roots appeared. There was not 50 centimeters of race that had no stone, hole or roots, we fought all the time and besides that had to be very careful not to ruin the equipment. But the balance is highly positive, plus an experience gained and the certainty that we need to improve on some points.”, explained the pilot.
Even with a more difficult course, Crivilin moved up from the previous day and finished the day in seventh place. In the World Cup, he occupies the sixth place in the classification, only two points behind the fifth placed, after six stages disputed.
From Estonia, the leader of the Brazilian Championship goes straight to Espirito Santo, where next weekend has another race valid by the Brazilian Enduro in Aracruz, his hometown. Crivilin leads the General Classification and the E1 Category.
