ENDURO The 2011 racing season did not turn out how the KTM Enduro Factory Team was expecting. At the start of the season top rider David Knight (E3) dislocated his hip again and subsequently had to have an operation. Johnny Aubert (E2) suffered multiple injuries at the GP in Greece, which brought a premature end to his season. Aubert, the two-times Enduro World Champion, extended his contract as a KTM factory rider. He is 100% fit again and would like to compete for the E2 class title again in 2012. The young KTM riders threw themselves into the breach and, in spite of everything, managed to take three Vice-World Champion titles. In the Enduro 1 class it was the Finn Eero Remes, in the Enduro 2 class the Spaniard Cristobal Guerrero and another Spaniard, Mario Roman, was Junior Vice-Champion. Joakim Ljunggren from the Husaberg team took third place in the Enduro 3 class.
