Loïc Larrieu Continues His Podium Streak In Estonia
Continuing his podium streak in Estonia, Outsiders Yamaha Official Enduro Team rider Loïc Larrieu has wrapped up round four of the 2018 FIM Enduro World Championship by securing two more top-three finishes in the Enduro 2 category.
Featuring a mixture of hard packed, sandy and stony terrain, the EnduroGP of Estonia proved to be demanding for all competitors. The weekend started with Larrieu posting the sixth fastest time in the short opening SuperTest, before the WR450F mounted rider set off for the two days of enduro racing that lay ahead.
Enjoying a consistent pace throughout day one, Loïc concluded the first full day of racing in Tallinn with a third-place result in the Enduro 2 category. Putting in another strong performance on day two, the Frenchman improved to a runner-up result on Sunday.
With four out of eight rounds contested so far this season, the Outsiders Yamaha Official Enduro Team rider is currently placed third in the provisional Enduro 2 World Championship standings. Loïc is now just three points behind the provisional runner-up in the class standings.
Loïc Larrieu and the Outsiders Yamaha Official Enduro Team return to action in Pietramurata, Italy for round five of the 2018 Enduro World Championship on June 29/30.

3rd Day 1 / 2nd Day 2
"Overall, it's been a good weekend and I'm happy with getting on the podium on both days. We got some good points for the championship and we're looking ahead now. I've worked hard during the last few weeks and I know the win is well within my reach. I struggled to get a good feeling throughout the weekend but I did my best each day. The level of competition is really high in the class and it's down to the smallest of details in every test. I had a steady pace throughout the weekend here in Estonia and I'm happy I avoided mistakes or crashes. The work continues and I'm now looking forward to the next GP in Italy."
