It has been 23 years since the Maxxis FIM EnduroGP World Championship last appeared in Hungary… but for this ‘Magyar’ Grand Prix, the organiser Adam HADOBAS will be able to count on a nice team to proudly represent the host country!
Starting with Kornel NEMETH (KTM)! The giant from Kaposvar (1.92m/6ft3) is well-known in the off-road world... he began his career in MXGP before heading to FMX, and finally dicing it up with the top guns of SuperEnduro (5th in 2012). Now 34, "Kori" is going to participate in an EnduroGP race for the very first time in his career, and will challenge the stars of the top category with a KTM 350 EXC-F.
But he won’t face the likes of Steve HOLCOMBE (GB - Beta), Matthew PHILLIPS (AUS - Sherco) and Loïc LARRIEU (F - Yamaha) alone, he will be joined by Bence HOLLO (Sherco) - who competed at last year’s GP of Italy in Enduro 2. The 26-year-old rider will be the real home favourite as he lives in the host town of Parad’, he will line up alongside NEMETH with a Sherco 300 SEF-R...
Unfortunately for the host country, Norbert ZSIGOVITS, Istvan JAGER, Peter KATAI and Gabor GRILLMAYER are injured and will not be able to participate in their Grand Prix. But with NEMETH and HOLLO, Hungary will be well represented in EnduroGP.
