It was a weekend of fast and frantic action at round four of the 2021 FIM EnduroGP World Championship, with Laia Sanz topping the Women’s class on both days of racing. In dominant form throughout the entire weekend, the Spanish ace enjoyed a maximum points haul, heading home to Spain with the Women’s class lead.

Arriving at the EnduroGP of Sweden tied on points at the top of the Women’s championship standings, Laia Sanz had only one thing on her mind – leave Skovde with a firm hold of the Women’s title chase. After topping the timesheets on Thursday night’s Super Test (the race ran from Thursday to Saturday!), Laia Sanz was in full control throughout the opening day of racing, claiming a convincing victory.

Championship Standings: 1. Laia Sanz (GASGAS) 75 points; 2. Mireia Badia (GASGAS) 67 points; 3. Jane Daniels (Fantic) 66 points.

For day two, the Spanish ace frustratingly lacked the energy needed to push forward, opting for a consistent pace in order to secure another strong result. Nevertheless, she won three of the six tests to claim a second day win in Sweden and now sits on top of the series standings with a comfortable eight-point lead.

Laia Sanz: “It’s been another good weekend for me and overall I’m really happy with my results. I would have liked for some of the tests to be a little slower and more technical, especially the extreme tests, but it was the same for everyone. Like the first round, my fitness isn’t quite where it needed to be in order to be able to push on the second day, so I had to maintain a strong but steady pace. In terms of my championship, it’s been a great weekend and now I have a nice gap at the top of the standings with one round to go in France.”

The EnduroGP series will now take a summer break before resuming for round five on October 9-10 in Germany where Andrea will return to Enduro1 action. For Laia Sanz, the third and final round of the 2021 FIM Women’s Enduro World Championship takes place in France on October 16-17. (source: gasgas)
