Wess: Win for Watson at Hawkstone Cross-Country

The sixth stop of the 2019 World Enduro Super Series saw competitors head to England for two-days race.  Nathan Watson took his first win of the season in dominant style.

Nathan Watson: “I’m super-happy to win today. I felt a lot of pressure coming into this weekend because it seems everyone expected me to win. Obviously, I got second here last year, so was extra-motivated this weekend. I won the sprint enduro yesterday, which gave me some confidence, but then I got a bad start today – I risked starting in gear and it didn’t pay off unfortunately. I made some aggressive passes early on and managed to get out in front. I felt so comfortable from then on to be honest, the bike was great and I was just able to ride fast and smooth and control the race from the front.”

The World Enduro Super Series continues with round seven – the BR2 Enduro Solsona in Spain on October 4-6.
