E1

Nathan Watson, new to the factory team in 2016 has made a smooth and successful transition from Motocross and his two victories this weekend put him just five points behind E1 leader Eero Remes. The Finn, who was dominant in the Scandinavian rounds failed to finish on day two of the Spanish race weekend.

The British rider wrapped up Saturday’s competition 38.57 seconds ahead of countryman Danny McCanney after winning seven of the day’s special tests on his new KTM 250 EXC-F. McCanney was also his biggest rival on day two, when Watson again took the win by 28.48 seconds despite some errors along the way that cost him time.

E2

Taylor Robert and Christophe Nambotin, the KTM factory duo who are racing E2 this season, were not so fortunate. Robert, the team’s American recruit registered a 7-5, which placed him at overall fifth but he admitted he had lacked a little confidence to really go for it this weekend.

Meanwhile Nambotin had several crashes on Sunday, including a substantial one in the Motocross test that saw him withdraw from the competition on day one. He didn’t manage to start on the second day. Robert is presently third in the championship points with four race days (two GP weekends) left on the calendar.
