Jarvis Racing Team’s Graham Jarvis has won round five of the FIM Hard Enduro World Championship at Red Bull Romaniacs. While securing his first victory of the season, Jarvis further cemented his status as a Hard Enduro legend by making it a historic seventh win at the infamous ‘world’s toughest Hard Enduro Rallye’.

Proving yet again that there is no telling what he’s capable of, Graham Jarvis has won the fifth round of the FIM Hard Enduro World Championship, while also claiming a record-breaking seventh Red Bull Romaniacs victory. Five years since his previous win (and 14 years since his first!) Jarvis was back on the top step of the world’s toughest Hard Enduro Rallye podium.

Graham Jarvis was joined on the podium by Team Bulgaria powered by ECONT’s Teodor Kabakchiev in second. Finishing third overall, Sherco Factory Racing’s Mario Roman retakes the points lead in the championship.

Graham Jarvis (Husqvarna): “It’s such an incredible feeling to win Red Bull Romaniacs again. I’ve done it seven times now, I don’t know what to say! In a race like this it takes a lot of effort all week to be there every day and I managed that. After last year’s knee injury I wasn’t sure how well I’d come back and if I’d be competitive again. It’s been a full year’s work, but I’ve done it. Not just getting back on the podium, but the top step too. Jarvis Racing Team is a full privateer effort, the guys around me are doing it because they love Hard Enduro as much as I do, so this win is for them as much as it is mine!”


Teodor Kabakchiev (KTM): “To get my first Red Bull Romaniacs podium is something special for sure. I’ve followed this race and these Hard Enduro legends since I was a kid, so being on the podium is amazing. The gap to Graham was big, but you never know what can happen in Hard Enduro, so I raced hard on the final day.”


Mario Roman (Sherco): “I’m super happy with third overall and finishing on the podium. Today was probably the hardest day of the week, the uphill sections just kept coming one after the other. All week my pace was pretty solid, but hats off to Teodor he was riding well. And Graham, well he’s just as amazing as ever. Overall it’s been a good result for the championship too. I’m now leading. Let’s hope I can build on that in the USA.”
