The most successful Estonian enduro rider Aigar Leok will do his one-off comeback to enduro world championship as one of the 2018 rounds is held in his home country Estonia. Enduro Tallinn GP takes place in Estonia's capital Tallinn and the dates are 1.-3. June. This is the first time for Maxxis Enduro GP series to have round in Baltic states.
Aigar Leok won during his presence in enduro world championship both silver and bronze. Now after he ended his international career in 2015 has he competed in Estonian and Baltic races both in enduro and motocross. Now when the round of Maxxis Enduro GP is held in Estonia it was clear that he will start in Enduro Tallinn GP organised by Redmoto club. He will compete in E1 class.
„I'm still in motorsport and like I said two years ago I will continue to compete but now in local level. When it was clear that the round of Maxxis Enduro GP series is held in Tallinn I had no doubts. It is good to race again with the guys and I don't have any special goals for this weekend. I just want to have fun and of course I will give my maximum,“ said Aigar Leok.
Comparing to Estonian championship is the world championship of course harder but this won't scare Leok.
„World championship is harder and it must be as there are the best drivers in the world. I have also spoken with many Estonian riders and I believe many of them will use this unique chance to compete against the championship riders. The stages will be for sure very interesting and enduro has many fans in Estonia therefore I hope to see many spectators on the stages,“ said Leok.
