Husaberg: Graham Jarvis at Erzberg Rodeo XVII

Finishing first but winning nothing a costly error late in the race denies Husaberg’s extreme enduro star Jarvis victory at the 2011 Erzberg Hare Scramble.

2011 Graham Jarvis 2011 Erzberg Enduro Husaberg: Graham Jarvis at Erzberg Rodeo XVII

Delivering one of the most impressive performances at this year’s event Husaberg’s Graham Jarvis came agonisingly close to winning the XVII running of the famous Erzberg Rodeo Hare Scramble.

Reaching the finish of the world’s toughest one-day extreme enduro ahead of all other riders Graham found himself out of the results having missed, by a matter of meters, the 16th route check-point, which handing victory to Poland’s Taddy Blazusiak.

Looking to claim his first ever Erzberg Rodeo Hare Scramble win having shown himself to be one of the few riders capable of challenging now five-time winner Taddy Blazusiak in past years, Graham steadily worked his way forward from a fifth place start.

Pacing himself during the early stages of the race knowing things would get progressively harder Graham made serious inroads into Blazusiak’s lead during the infamous rock section known as Carl’s Diner.

Catching and passing Taddy it was at the next checkpoint that Graham made his costly mistake. Although reaching the finish first Graham was later removed from the results – a bitter pill to swallow having ridden exceptionally well throughout the race.

For Husaberg’s second extreme enduro racer competing at Erzberg – Spain’s Xavi Galindo – the Hare Scramble proved to be tough, but ended with a superb fifth place result. Crashing during the qualifying prologue in his first attempt at the Iron Mountain a couple of years back, which resulted in the need for two operations on his left elbow, Xavi again fell during qualifying but was thankfully uninjured this time around and made it into the main Hare Scramble race.

Making a great start Xavi then undid much of his hard work when he flipped his bike at the top of one of the early climbs. Dropping him down the running order, once the race reached the harder single track sections of the course the Spaniard found himself having to wait as the riders ahead of him were one-by-one assisted up the challenging climbs.

Finally finding some clear track ahead of him Xavi worked his way into an eventual fifth place position. “I made a really good start to the race but when I arrived at the first difficult section I made a big mistake,” explained the Spaniard. “I flipped my bike back down the hill and lost many, many positions. The biggest problem was that I made the mistake right before the single track sections of the course. I had no choice but to wait and wait and wait as the riders in front of me were getting pulled up the hills before I could go.

“It wasn’t until later in the race that I was able to get some clear track. During the last 30 minutes I past Chris Birch, the Japanese rider Tanaka, and finally Dan Hemingway in “Dynamite”. I’m very happy to have finished fifth, but maybe I could have been one or two position better if I hadn’t made the mistake.”

Results – XVII Erzberg Rodeo Hare Scramble
1. Tadeusz Blazusiak (POL/KTM); 2. Dougie Lampkin (GBR/Gas Gas); 3. Jonny Walker (GBR/KTM); 4. Ben Hemingway (GBR/KTM); 5. Xavi Galindo (ESP/Husaberg); 6. Dan Hemingway (GBR/KTM); 7. Taichi Tanaka (JPN/KTM); 8. Chris Birch (NZL/KTM); 9. Lars Enöckl (AUT/KT
