In E1, Antoine Basset has repeated the third place he got yesterday, getting two podiums in his ride through the Estonia GP. Eemil Pohjola achieved a well deserved fifth place yesterday, but today he was forced to retire due to an electrical problem.

With these results, the GasGas Factory Team has added five podiums in the fourth round of the World Enduro Championship. A very hard and demanding Grand Prix for both riders and their bikes, which forced some of the favourite riders to retire.

The World Enduro Championship returns on the 29th and 30th of June with the the Trentino GP, in Pietramurata, Italy.

CHRISTOPHE NAMBOTIN:
"Yesterday I did not finish too close to the top riders, but today I found myself much better from the start. But on the third lap I started to feel bad physically, although I was able to finish and end up second. It was not the best weekend for me, but I am satisfied with the podium and we will continue to train to improve in the coming races."

DANNY MCCANNEY:
"Yesterday started very badly with a crash in the first cross test, but I kept pushing and managed to finish second. Today I started well, with a small fall in the extreme and I was fighting the rest of the day. We added two more podiums in the Estonia GP and now we have to prepare well for the Trentino GP."

ANTOINE BASSET:
"It was a good weekend with two podiums. Yesterday was not my best day, but I managed to finish third. Today, despite suffering a fall and losing some time, I got back onto the third step. I gave it everything I had. In Italy we will keep on giving whatever it takes!"

EEMIL POHJOLA:
"Yesterday was a good day. Despite two falls, I felt good on the bike and I finished fifth. Today was a bit more difficult and I had to retire in the second stage. Races are like that and we will give everything to get the best possible result in Italy."
