The next stage of the world championship took Jarvis and other racers to the beautiful Italian mountains of Tuscany for the Abestone race for the weekend of the 9th and 10th of July.
The qualifying race consisted of 20 minute four laps, with the riders best two times counting, with Jarvis finishing 13th in this part of the race. The top 30 of this qualified for the main Sunday race whilst the top 16 qualified for the straight rhythm night race which decides the final start positions for the main race. From this, Jarvis finished 8th which hindered the main Abestone race as there was a 30 second interval start.
The main race itself on the Sunday was disappointing for Graham, who stated; “I made a lot of mistakes on the first lap and then I made some adjustments to the bike at the service point and felt a lot better. Though it certainly was not my best performance and I felt it was the most physical race of the year”.
Despite the slow start, Jarvis worked his way to a 6th place finish, meaning that he currently sits in 5th place in the overall world championship standings with 40 points.
The FIM Hard Enduro World Championship continues with round five at Red Bull Romaniacs in Romania on July 26-30.
