Paul Bolton comes 3rd in The Red Bull Minas Riders in Belo Horizonte, Brazil
The battle for the final step on the podium was a close affair between Paul Bolton (KTM) and Philipp Scholz (KTM). With little to separate the duo, the pair rode at maximum attack to try and win the final piece of silverware on offer.
“I’m made up with third overall in what’s been a hard week of riding,” told Bolton. “To end the first Red Bull Hard Enduro of 2016 on the podium is a brilliant result. The battle for third was tight between Philipp Scholz and myself entering today – it was only about a one-minute gap. We were both pushing but I managed to stay in front of him and get third.”
Reaching the finish line first, Bolton did enough to hold Scholz at bay.
