Third final position for Will Hoare and sixth for Dominik Olszowy, who shone in the Superpole. The SuperEnduro World Championship, which is in the final stretch of the season, held this past Saturday the penultimate round of 2024 in Sofia (Bulgaria).

First of all, the Superpole of this sixth round was sensational for the Rieju Factory Team rider, Dominik Olszowy, who managed to set the second best time among the seven finalists. 

Then, in the first of the three finals Dominik did not have much luck, when after a good start and while battling with several riders in the leading positions, he suffered a crash that put him behind in the standings, finishing in eighth place. On the other hand, his teammate Will Hoare, who started from the second row, was recovering positions throughout the race, until he finished sixth.

The third and last final of the night arrived, where the two Rieju Factory Team riders came out very motivated, maintaining a very hard-fought performance from the beginning, placing themselves after the first corners among the front group, with Hoare pushing and Olszowy behind, gaining positions, although a fall in the area of the stones, delayed the Polish rider. For his part, Will continued to maintain a high pace, which allowed him to cross the finish line in an excellent second position, while Olszowy would finish seventh. 

In this way, Will Hoare took a well-deserved third place in the final podium of the Bulgarian GP. Meanwhile, Dominik Olszowy, despite his efforts, finished in sixth place. As far as the provisional overall standings are concerned, Will Hoare is now fourth and Dominik Olszowy sixth, tied on points with the fifth placed rider.

 The World Championship will end this coming weekend in Newcastle, UK, where the Rieju Factory Team riders will once again give their all.


Will Hoare:

"I am very happy tonight because I led the second race for a few laps, unfortunately then I had a crash and in the final race I finished second. I feel more and more comfortable on my Rieju after every race. Now we will train for the SuperEnduro final in the UK."
