Guarneri wins Italian enduro

The small Sicilian village of Custonaci in the province of Trapani hosted the second and third act of the top Italian championship and the Fantic riders have been protagonists in a very demanding and difficult race.

Davide Guarneri (E/50 Racing Fantic Factory Team) dominated the 125 class while Riccardo Fabris (Fantic JET Racing) won both race days in the Youth class.

The Fantic riders dominated and amazed last weekend during the two days of competition on Saturday 27 March and Sunday 28 March. The organizers of the second and third act of the Assoluti d’Italia di Enduro have created a race with three very demanding special tests, both with hard and rocky terrain and at the same time very scenic.

In the 125 class former cross rider Davide Guarneri clearly excelled and won both days of competition, dominating since from the first special test.
