Jonny Walker Ready For Red Bull Sea To Sky
KTM Enduro Factory Racing’s Jonny Walker has returned to Kemer, Turkey this week where he will today take to the start of the 2017 edition of the Red Bull Sea to Sky hard enduro.
Back on form and injury-free, Jonny will compete in what is often known as ‘the most enjoyable extreme enduro’ and will begin the event as one of the favourites to win. Hot-on-the-heels of his victory at Red Bull 111 Megawatt in Poland only two weeks ago, Jonny is focused on carrying his winning form into what is another of his favourite event.
Red Bull Sea to Sky consists of three main events, held on consecutive days – a beach race, a forest race and a mountain race. Jonny topped all three when he won the event in 2013, something he’s hoping to repeat this year.
“I’m really looking forward to getting my bike on that beach and giving it everything. I really missed riding in Turkey last year because the event has to be one of the best on the calendar. It’s a little more relaxed than some of the other hard enduros, but it’s certainly not easy. It’s been a tough year so far but my win in Poland has really boosted my confidence again. I feel really good on the bike and I know I have the speed to win. Competition is going to be tough this year as all the top names are back riding, so it should be really good. I believe the format for the race has changed slightly so that will prove an added challenge. I only have one goal here at Sea to Sky, and that’s to win.”
