USWE rider Manuel Lettenbichler has won the 2022 FIM Hard Enduro World Championship!

“Red Bull KTM Factory Racing’s Manuel Lettenbichler has won the 2022 FIM Hard Enduro World Championship. Claiming a dominant victory at the eighth and final round of the series – Hixpania Hard Enduro – the young German secured the title in style on his KTM 300 EXC…

“In what turned out to be a thrilling climax to the FIM Hard Enduro season, Hixpania Hard Enduro delivered three days of action-packed racing in Spain. The opening prologue held in the heart of Aguilar de Campoo’s medieval town square saw Manuel Lettenbichler get his title attack off to a strong start by completing the endurocross-style race as runner-up…”

“With the final race starting in the infamous cave section, it was Mani who emerged first and set off into the course. Riding at a fast but calculated pace, the 24-year-old opened up a comfortable gap at the head of the field. Despite increasing pressure from behind, Lettenbichler was able to manage his speed over the rocky terrain and maintain his lead to the finish. On reaching the checkered flag, Lettenbichler secured his fifth overall victory of the season and with it, the FIM Hard Enduro crown…”

“Manuel Lettenbichler: ‘I can’t believe it – this feels so good! The pressure was definitely on this morning, I was so nervous before the start.

I got a great start and was leading and managed to make a bit of a gap, but then after about an hour I was already starting to get tired and there was still a long way to go. Everyone was riding so well, but I knew it was Mario behind me and he kept the pressure on right to the finish. I’m so happy to get the job done, and it’s even better to do it with a win here in Spain, especially in front of this sick crowd. They’ve given so much support to everyone the whole weekend, it’s been amazing.’”KTM.COM 10.11.22
