Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing’s Graham Jarvis has claimed victory at the 22nd running of the ErzbergRodeo Hare Scramble. From a front row start Graham was well placed during the early, faster sections of the race. The hugely experienced former event winner then methodically worked his way into the lead with 30 minutes of the race completed.

Once out front and with the event’s well-known technical sections ahead of him, he never stopped extending his race lead to eventually reach the finish in a time of two hours and 19 minutes. Jarvis finished more than 33 minutes ahead of runner-up Cody Webb with third placed Alfredo Gomez a further three minutes behind.

Overall, it was a near perfect race for the now 41-year-old British rider. Always excelling when conditions are at their most difficult, Jarvis produced a world-class performance around the Iron Giant. Smooth, calculated and unrelenting, he took control of the race lead at a crucial moment in one of the forestry sections and never looked back. Crossing the finish line over 33 minutes clear of his nearest rival, Jarvis reminded everyone why he is one of the best extreme enduro riders in the world.

Delivering a very impressive ride, Mario Roman secured an impressive fourth overall in the Red Bull Hare Scramble. Focused on avoiding trouble, Roman placed strongly throughout the duration of the 35-kilometre long race. Closing up on Wade Young and Taddy Blazusiak in the final few sections, he set his sights on a top four result. Working hard to scale the final Lazy Noon climb, Roman battled his way past the duo to claim the position in the final few moments of the race.

SuperEnduro World Champion Colton Haaker competed in the ErzbergRodeo for the first time this year. Starting off his weekend on top form, Haaker placed an impressive 11th overall in the Iron Road Prologue to secure a place on the front row of the grid for Sunday’s Hare Scramble. Starting strongly, he then crashed on one of the first hill climbs, losing numerous positions. Pushing a little too hard to recover resulted in numerous further crashes and Haaker was unable to complete the race distance in the allotted four hours.
