HILLSTON-born enduro star Toby Price remains in a position to win his class at the FIM International Six-Day Enduro in Germany, with just 1 minute 13 seconds separating him and French rider Christophe Nambotin.
Price led the Australian charge on the second day of the titles, with the NSW star sweeping three pf six special test victories.
Despite being hampered by a bent wheel, buckled after a run-in with a stump on the opening day of competition, Price posted the fastest times in special tests one, five and six to catapult himself to fifth outright and entrench himself as clear second runner in Enduro Three.
“Better day today, sucked in the enduro test, but the rest were good, won three of the six special tests outright and have moved into fifth outright and second in class,” Price said via Facebook after the stage.
“Front wheel is better, but still bit bent up, but it should make it. Four days to go, thanks for your support everyone. “
Price’s standout performances helped Australia’s senior team consolidate their second place ranking in the premier World Trophy Team competition, with the green and gold chargers moving to 12 minutes behind powerhouse France and nearly seven minutes ahead of nearest rivals Italy.
On day one of the competition, Price and the Australian team finished in second position on the World Trophy Team competition board, 4.13 minutes behind tough rivals France and 1.21 minutes ahead of third-placed Finland.
Personally for the local-born star, he narrowly missed out on top honours in the Enduro 3 class, squeezed out of first place by four seconds by Nambotin.
