Second consecutive victory for Graham Jarvis at the Romaniacs

3 years ago

The fourth and final day of the 2012 Red Bull Romaniacs took off with an extra hour of sleep: in a last minute decision, the organising team around Martin “Freijn” Freinademetz granted the riders an easier and relaxed start into what would become their last and toughest day. The level of difficulty and pressure had been rising as quickly as the energy level of the participants was draining. Some of the most insane sections were still waiting out there to bring the riders to their limits. But the sprits were high, the weather perfect and the end of one of the best Red Bull Romaniacs ever was in sight!

Despite a crash and drowning his bike in a river today, Graham Jarvis, the “Silent Assassin”, dominated the race without any real competition and is now a three-time winner of the rallye, like Cyril Despres. He already confirmed to be back next year to complete his mission to kick Cyril off the throne for good and become the undefended “King of the Carpathians”. Graham on his Husaberg TE300 finished the first three off-road days of the Red Bull Romaniacs as winner and rode quite a lonely race at the top.

Graham Jarvis: “The first three days of the race went just perfect for me. I was able to pull a good gap on my competitors and had some great rides. Today I crashed and drowned my bike which lost me some time so I decided to take it easy into the finish. I’m really happy about my third victory, it’s just great to be on the top of the podium again!”

After his troubles yesterday catching a massive steel cable in his rear wheel and losing a lot of time cutting his bike loose Xavi Galindo today enjoyed a great ride and came home in 5th behind Jarvis for a 5th place overall finish, one spot better than last year.

Xavi Galindo: “For me this is the best race in the world. The track is demanding but rideable. Unfortunately I had this problem yesterday but I’m still happy with 5th place.”
