Colton Haaker SuperEnduro World Champ

6 months ago | Photos: Future7 Media

Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing’s Colton Haaker has successfully defended his FIM SuperEnduro World Championship title, winning the 2017 series with a third-place overall result at the fourth and final event held in Albi, France. Entering the championship decider with an 11-point advantage over his closest challenger Alfredo Gomez, Haaker did exactly what he needed to do to secure his second SuperEnduro title in two years. Riding notably better than he did at round three in Spain two weeks earlier, Colton rounded out his night with 2/2/3/ results to join Gomez and Jonny Walker on the podium.

“It’s great to win the SuperEnduro title again. It’s been a very different championship to last year, as I felt like I started this series as the favourite to win. Defending the SuperEnduro title was definitely something different, and quite possibly harder to do, but I’m just stoked to win the championship. I felt like I rode well tonight, but at the same time, I knew the title was on the line. I’m stoked to have got two SuperEnduro titles in a row” – said Colton Haaker.

Final Standings – 2017 SuperEnduro World Championship

Alfredo Gomez (KTM) – 209
Jonny Walker (KTM) – 201
