Despres recently won his third in the Red Bull Romaniacs Hard in only four years the event has been run, riders the challenges of Romania’s Mountains.

The third victory for came only on the final day his friend and fellow professional Gau crashed and broke his arm in the final Cyril talks to the 2007 event.

What are impressions of the race this

Despres: It was certainly very with long days on the and very varied landscapes.

But as far as Enduro is concerned I think it is one of the and most beautiful countries experienced. The event was generally organized, although there some problems with the of one of the checkpoints and this was something could have been But all in all it was a good balance of terrain and it was challenging for the riders.

In terms of Enduro rallies, how do you rate the

Despres: I think it is up there the top three.

What about the situation Michel Gau’s accident? was an important point in the race for

Despres: Sure, we were fighting in the first days and the of the top three or four were close. It was clear to us that won that day was going to win the race. Michel hit a root and he came off and into a tree.


In fact he his arm and dislocated his wrist and we found out he had also pinched a tendon after that he didn’t any feeling in his fingers. I stopped to him because even though we are we have been friends for 15 I was able to rig up a kind of a splint to get his arm in until the first aid team got

How many riders passed you that time?

Despres: not sure but I didn’t lose any because I was able to call the as soon as it happened and then called me again just as the aid guys were arriving, so the I spent with him was deducted my aggregate time. By the way I have to see him in the hospital in Marseilles and he is doing ok. He has to some more tests the ligament problem but he’s in spirits.

You were riding the new KTM 300 EXC-E model and this is the first for this bike. What are impressions?

Despres: Well as a we are always concerned about the having any extra weight and I was a bit before the race about the of the battery and the electronic starter for reason. But I have to say it was very in many situations and it is definitely an when you have to stop at sections or to push the bike rough terrain. It’s great to be able to just that little button to up again.

Also the whole bike is to manage and I enjoyed riding it a also with the new tank When you are on the bike for 200 km a day it’s to have a bike that is and that you feel good
