Manuel Lettenbichler of Germany (1st), Alfredo Gomez Cantero of Spain (2nd) and Graham Jarvis of Great Britain (3rd) celebrate on the podium at the World Enduro Super Series 2019 Stop 5 - Red Bull Romaniacs in Sibiu, Romania on August 3rd, 2019.
Drama to the very end of Red Bull Romaniacs 2019 – What went down during the final day in Romania and how Manuel Lettenbichler took his first WESS win.
So often in hard enduro the war can be won or lost way before the final flag. Not at Romaniacs 2019 which delivered a dramatic and deserving result that ultimately saw three contenders whittled down to just two during the final day before the very last hillclimbs battered a result in favour of Manuel Lettenbichler.
Lettenbichler finished runner-up in the 2018 World Enduro Super Series and is a regular podium finisher at the world's major hard and extreme enduro events but this Romaniacs 2019 victory surely ranks as his biggest prize to date.
