In case you don’t know, Hell’s Gate is one of the most intense extreme enduro events, and Italy’s most popular. The single day event includes a three-hour main event that includes a host of nearly impossible terrain for the challengers to ride over, around, and through. We’re talking piles of logs to climb, yards of rocks to traverse, and narrow passages lined with trees to navigate through. Not to mention the mud, water, and weather the riders have to deal with.
It’s by no means an easy event, as a simple Youtube search will point out, nor is it for the inexperienced. But none of that matters to Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing’s Graham Jarvis. Jarvis easily topped the results of the qualifying session, then stayed cool, calm, consistent, and fast, as he claimed his fifth Hell’s Gate win at the 2017 event – four minutes ahead of his next nearest rival.
