Battling for victory on both days of racing at the EnduroGP of Hungary, Outsiders Yamaha Official Enduro Team rider Loïc Larrieu wrapped up round four of the 2017 FIM EnduroGP World Championship with two third places results in Paradfürdo.
Showing impressive speed in the dry and dusty Hungarian terrain, the WR450F powered rider was fast throughout the weekend. The event started with the Frenchman posting the second fastest time in the short, opening Super Test.
Involved in a day-long battle for victory Loïc suffered a small mistake during the second lap on day one. Quickly getting back up to speed, he managed to wrap up the day third in the premier EnduroGP class.
Equally fast on the second day of racing in Hungary, Larrieu kept improving his pace as the race went on. Winning the last enduro test of the day he put himself on the EnduroGP podium for the fourth consecutive time this season.
Collecting valuable points during the weekend in Hungary, Larrieu remains second in the EnduroGP championship standings, 21 points behind the provisionally class leader.
Loïc Larrieu and the Outsiders Yamaha Official Enduro Team return to action in Grevena, Greece, with round five of the 2017 Enduro World Championship taking place on July 1/2.

3rd Day 1 / 3rd Day 2
"It was a very big fight at the top of the EnduroGP class. I enjoyed it a lot, and to be pushing for the win on both days shows it's been another very positive GP for us. Things were going very well for me on the first day, I just made one mistake on the enduro test on the second lap. I lost around 10 seconds, which cost me one position. Despite that it was a good day, my bike was great. Day two was also very positive. In the final extreme test I lost a few seconds. When the competition is so close one small mistake is so hard to come back from. I feel that the tests were quite tight and technical, and that they were a little harder on bigger bikes. So, I am really pleased with and third on both days. It's more good points for the championship and now we focus on Greece and the next round of the series."
