Manuel Lettenbichler Wins 2022 Red Bull Erzbergrodeo

Rnd 3, FIM Hard Enduro 2022 – Red Bull Erzbergrodeo, Austria

Back on the calendar for the first time since 2019, this year’s Red Bull Erzbergrodeo didn’t disappoint. Under a blazing sun and in temperatures reaching 30 degrees, the 500 starters faced hot and dusty conditions as well as the iconic named sections that earn the event the reputation as being the toughest one-day hard enduro in the world.

Manuel Lettenbichler:“I think this year’s race will definitely go down as one of the hardest editions in history, especially the sections that they changed overnight – none of us really knew what to expect and the organisers certainly delivered. To take the win means so much to me. After my dad did it in 2015, I always said I wanted to bring another winner’s trophy back to the house and now I have done it! Another one ticked off the bucket list, that’s for sure.”

Trystan Hart: “I set out to put Canada on the map and I think I managed to do that in style. They definitely stepped things up this year, we had walked a lot of the new sections, but as always, they changed them for the race, and some were near impossible. We all had a challenge today and I think if things had fallen a little differently, I could have been in contention for the win, but I’m so happy with third place and already looking forward to racing some more rounds of the Hard Enduro series.”

The next round of the FIM Hard Enduro World Championship will be Red Bull Abestone in Italy, from July 9-10.
