HAAKER SHAKES IT UP IN GRAND FINALE
Colton Haaker (Husqvarna) completed a perfect debut season in the FIM SuperEnduro World Championship at the final round of the series in Madrid, coming out on top of the three-way title showdown with fellow American Cody Webb (KTM) and Great Britain's Jonny Walker (KTM). The Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing rider, whose father John Haaker was an ISDE Gold medallist, started the championship with a fourth overall in Poland but after that he never looked back, finishing on the podium at every round. The last event of the season in Las Rozas started with a third place for Haaker in the opening final, before finishing second to Webb in the second final.
Despite a bad start in the decisive third final, Haaker battled back to the front and went head-to-head with Webb for the win, making a pass on his compatriot on the final lap to secure the title in dramatic fashion. Webb was forced to settle for the runner-up spot in the championship ahead of Walker in third.
