Posting times inside the top three in two of the nine special tests a small mistake in the final motocross test resulted in him having to settle for sixth, less than five seconds behind fifth-placed rider Rudy Moroni.

Taking advantage of the long break in his FIM Cross-Country Rallies World Championship campaign, Yamalube Yamaha Official Rally Team rider Helder Rodrigues has opted to compete in the remainder of the Enduro World Championship, starting with the GP of Spain. Racing an essentially standard Yamaha WR250F in the Enduro 1 class the Portuguese rider finished 12th in the class on day two.
