The 2014 Hard Enduro season was one of the closest and most exciting ever as Jonny Walker, Afredo Gómez and David Knight all took event wins in the hope of ending Graham Jarvis’ reign at the top of extreme racing.
Jarvis started where he left off last season with victory at the Hell’s Gate season opener in Italy but David Knight made a brief return to Hard Enduro to win the Tough One for the sixth time at its new venue, historic British motocross circuit Hawkstone Park.
Jonny Walker won his second Red Bull Hare Scramble on the 20th anniversary of Erzberg, to make it three winners from the first three rounds, before ending Jarvis’ three-year winning run at the Red Bull Romaniacs in Romania to become the first rider to win two events in 2014.
Red Bull Sea to Sky on the Turkish coast saw Jarvis hit back, before Alfredo Gómez ended a difficult season on a high by taking his first ever Hard Enduro win at the Extreme XL Lagares.
In the end, Graham Jarvis once again retained his Hard Enduro crown in 2014, but 2015 could well see the King of Hard Enduro finally dethroned.
