    Follow the wins and successes of Maxxis riders on the brand-new MaxxEnduro tyre in the EnduroGP 2021 Championship.
    Maxxis and EnduroGP 2021

    Maxxis’ performance in the 2021 EnduroGP 2021 is truly impressive. With multiple GP wins, class wins and a whole lotta podiums, we’re loving the 2021 enduro season.

    EnduroGP (the FIM Enduro World Championship) is particularly exciting as the three key classes, E1, E2 and E3 have varied bike power restrictions. This year, not for the first time, Maxxis riders continue to punch above their weight and achieve incredible overall GP results despite riding lesser-powered bikes than other competitors.

    E1: Up to 250cc bikes, both 2-stroke and 4-stroke.
    E2: 250cc+ 2-stroke to 450cc 4-stroke.
    E3: 250cc+ 2-stroke and 450cc+ 4-stroke.

    Similarly, the Junior (FIM Junior Enduro World Championship) has two classes as follows:

    J1: Up to 250cc, both 2-stroke and 4-stroke.
    J2: Over 255cc, both 2-stroke and 4-stroke.

    Huge respect to the riders of TM Boano Factory Team for their performance in the 2021 season.


    Airmousse GP of Sweden 22 - 24 July: Skövde

    EnduroGP Results
    After a stellar start in Stage 1 with a win in both E2 and the overall EnduroGP, Wil Ruprecht finished Stage 2 in 2nd place of the E2 class and 5th in the EnduroGP ranking.

    Junior Results
    The new star of the Junior GP, Lorenzo Macoritto, dominated the competition by achieving four first place positions across the two Stages, a particularly impressive result considering his lower-power class. His teammate therefore fell slightly behind, Matteo Pavoni finishing the overall Junior rounds in second place in both Stages but still clinching the first place win in both Stages for the J2 class.

    Two 1st place wins in Stage 1 for Wil Ruprecht in both E2 and EnduroGP, followed by a 2nd place in Stage 2 of the E2 and 5th place in the overall Stage 2 GP results. Teammate Thomas Marini remained in the Top 10 with a 6th and 7th place finish respectively in each stage.
    Lorenzo Macoritto shone with 1st place finishes in Stage 1 and 2 of the Junior overall and the J1 class, while his teammate settled for second place overall but still achieved 1st place in the J2 class. Teammate Hermanni Haljala remained in the top 10 with 7th and 6th place respectively in the J1 class.

    GP of Estonia 16 - 18 July: Saaremaa

    EnduroGP Results
    The track of Saaremaa did not agree with Wil Ruprecht in quite the same way as the two previous rounds of the EnduroGP. The E2 class rider still achieved two podiums in the E2 category with a 2nd place finish in each Stage, but the times were not quite good enough to place him on the EnduroGP overall podium, where he instead achieved 5th place, still an impressive result for an E2 rider.

    Junior Results
    A quadruple podium in the meantime for Matteo Pavoni with Stage 1 returning 1st place in both the J2 class and the overall Junior, and in Stage 2 another J2 1st place but his teammate and fellow Maxxis rider Lorenzo Macoritto instead succeeded in taking the first place position in not only the J1 class but also the overall Junior category.

    Wil Ruprecht achieved two second-place finishes in the E2 class, and 5th in both stages in the EnduroGP overall classification, while his teammate Matteo Cavallo achieved two Top-10 finishes in the E1 class with a 6th and 7th place finish respectively in Stages 1 and 2.
    Matteo Pavoni and Lorenzo Macoritto battled heavily for the Junior win, with each rider winning their own classes at each Stage, but Pavoni achieving the overall Junior win in Stage 1 and Macoritto pipping him to the post with an overall win for himself in Stage 2. Hermanni Haljala maintained Top-10 finishes in the J1 class with two 9th place finishes.
