With the four-day event cut short after
day two due to environmental concerns
beyond the event organisers’ control,
Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing’s
Graham Jarvis has been declared the winner
of the 2017 edition of Minas Riders having
ended day two as the overall leader.

Jarvis entered the second edition of the Brazilian
race determined to start things off with a victory.
Ending a rain-soaked prologue as runner-up, he
then went on the attack when the race entered
the mountains for the first off-road day.

Pushing hard throughout the five-hour plus opening
day of hard enduro racing, the Husqvarna rider
claimed a three-minute margin of victory to establish
an early lead. Maintaining his position at the head of
the field with second on day one, Jarvis was holding
a two-minute buffer over his nearest rival Cody Webb
as the race entered its second half.

But with days three and four cancelled, Jarvis
unexpectedly found himself as the early winner of the
2017 edition of the Brazilian Hard Enduro Rally.

Jarvis: “It’s great to come away with the win
here in Brazil but it is a bittersweet victory due
to the race being cut short by two days. It was
a situation that arose beyond the event organisers’
control and it’s disappointing for them and the
sport for this to happen. They do an excellent job
and I want to thank them for all their hard work,
which often goes unappreciated. The first two days
of the race were awesome. The conditions were
tough, made harder by the weather but trails were
fantastic. I was enjoying the fight with Cody too.
We rode together quite a lot and I could feel that
battle was going to continue right until the chequered
flag. We were pushing each other a lot, at times I
had an advantage and at other times he did. Day
one was probably where I ultimately got the event
won. I attacked hard from the beginning because
last year I lost too much time on the opening day
and didn’t want to let that happen again. I won
the day by three minutes and then was able to
maintain that on day two. It’s been good to end
the second edition of the event in Brazil with a
victory and I’m now looking forward to bringing
that winning momentum to the ErzbergRodeo next month.”
