William Hoare has been superb throughout the 2019 SuperEnduro season. He has won nine races out of 12, and has remained virtually unchallenged from the first gate drop back in Poland in early December. Arriving in Budapest, he had to score 18 points more than nearest rival Tim Apolle to be champion.
Despite stating that he would ride “carefully and steadily, without pushing for the title” he couldn’t resist putting himself in a position to win all three races in Hungary. An absolutely flawless performance in Race 1 saw him disappear ahead of Norbert Jozsa and Teodor Kabakchiev.
In Race 2 the young Brit won by 16.8 seconds over Leon Hentschell and Adrien Jacon. And in the final outing of the night, Dominik Olszowy and Tim Apolle joined an unstoppable Hoare on the podium.
After his superb display, the 20-year-old from Yorkshire in the UK topped the podium and took his much-deserved title. Joining him on the overall podium were Tim Apolle and an ever-improving Enrico Rinaldi.
The last time a rider won the title a full round before the end of the season was in 2014, when Giacomo Redondi took the Junior crown.
