The RedBull Romaniacs Hard Enduro took place this weekend with a great South African contingent representing the country.

For the Brother Leader Tread KTM team it was Travis Teasdale whose light shone the brightest. Powerful domestic performances over the last few seasons racing in SA have allowed the KZN KTM pro to start jumping across the pond and hitting up the World Extreme Enduros and with some success. Podiums and more awareness of the structure of the events have aided his climb to stardom and at this year’s event, he continued his meteoric climb up the ranks as he nailed down an amazing fifth place finish and with this result also beat out some of the worlds very best. If the World didn’t already know the name of Travis Teasdale, they do now.

Team mate Dwayne Kleynhans had a solid run to take a finish in the incredibly tough gold category and cement his already established name as a threat at these kinds of events as he took a creditable eighteenth place overall.

The ultimate female competitor and first lady of World Extreme Enduro kept her score sheet clean with a great finish in the Silver class yet again with a top 50 finish overall. 47th to be exact but inside the top 50 would have been high on Kirsten Landman’s list after a rough second day where she lost a lot of time early on and had to dig deep to make the finish and regroup. Landman remains the woman to beat at World Extreme Enduro, long may she reign as Queen of the Mountains.

The Brother Leader Tread KTM Enduro team will be in action on SA shores once again in Harding on the South Coast of KZN on 12 August for the next round of the National Enduro Championship.
