Red Bull KTM Factory Racing’s Manuel Lettenbichler has successfully won the 2023 FIM Hard Enduro World Championship after a sweeping victory at the Hixpania Hard Enduro in Spain.
The KTM 300EXC racer remained unbeaten throughout the 2023 season. He scored five consecutive wins before concluding his stellar run in Spain to clinch his second consecutive FIM Hard Enduro Title.
It’s been an incredible year for Mani. He started with a win at the Xross Hard Enduro in Serbia and the the 25-year-old went on to dominate at Red Bull Erzbergrodeo, Red Bull Romaniacs, and Red Bull Outliers.
Sunday’s main race was much tougher due to the rain and fog. Nevertheless, Lettenbichler delivered a steady masterclass, increasing his advantage over the rest to secure the victory.
“Here I am now, fifth race win in a row for this season and world champion. I had to push so hard today. I got a good start and was able to pass Billy almost straight away. From there I just focused and kept up a good rhythm. Honestly, the day could not have gone any better for me, the race was awesome. What can I say? I’m just speechless,” says Lettenbichler.
With the title in hand, Lettenbichler has one final round of the series to face – the GetzenRodeo on home soil in early November.
