Jamie McCanney Places Runner-Up In 2018 Enduro 1 World Championship
Wrapping up his season with a double podium result at the GP of Germany, Outsiders Yamaha Official Enduro Team rider Jamie McCanney has secured the runner-up spot in the 2018 FIM Enduro 1 World Championship.
Featuring two long days of racing, the Enduro World Championship season finale in Rüdersdorf, Germany saw Jamie McCanney battle for the coveted Enduro 1 class victory on both days of racing.
The WR250F powered rider started the weekend by securing a strong second place result in the short, opening SuperTest on Friday evening. Not finishing outside the top-four in any of the 10 tests contested on Saturday, Jamie wrapped up day one with a runner-up result in the 250cc category.
Solidifying his second position in the championship, Jamie entered day two looking to end his season on a high note. Remaining consistently fast throughout the day, the Brit claimed a third place class result on Sunday.
Despite not earning any points at the mid-season GP of Trentino due to a shoulder injury, Jamie has managed to end the series as the Enduro 1 World Championship runner-up. Collecting four class victories and another nine podium results, the Manxman has consistently demonstrated the performance of his WR250F machine in a variety of conditions throughout in 2018.

2nd Day 1 / 3rd Day 2
"It's been a long season and I'm happy to wrap it up with second in the Enduro 1 World Championship. It was a really intense weekend of racing here in Germany and you had to be fully committed to get some good test results. Both the enduro test and the cross test did not allow for any mistake, and I had to give 100% to keep my chances of victory alive. It would have been nice to finish the season with a win but my fitness, following my mid-season injuries, hasn't been as good as I hoped it would be. But this year there were many great moments. I started the season with one victory in Finland, went 1-1 in Spain and then got another win in Portugal. As soon as the injuries came, it was hard to get back on the same level. I was forced to stay away from the bike for nearly three months and it felt like I've had a mountain to climb ever since. All things considered, I'm happy with the way I finished this season and with my second position on the championship. It's been a real team effort."
