British hard enduro rider Jonny Walker has taken his second victory of the season, following on from last month’s Hell’s Gate win in Italy with a victory at home, lifting the crown at Wales’ The Tough One.

Over a surprisingly warm and sunny course through Nantmawr Quarry on the Welsh-English border, Walker dominated from fellow Brit Graham Jarvis to lead the race from running start to finish.

Speaking afterwards, he said: “I got the lead from the start and then tried to avoid any mistakes. I managed to keep a steady lead of two minutes to the finish. All my team did a great job today and I’m really happy to finally win The Tough One.”

Jarvis added: “I got a bit of arm pump early on, and struggled with my pace. Once I got my lines right and managed to start pushing, I had a good pace and kept a similar pace to Jonny. The only disappointing thing was my first few laps.”

The next event on the hard enduro calendar is the infamous Erzbergrodeo in June.
