Gosvig gathers mud covered win at Danish Nationals

Mike Gosvig Mud Race Win

Round 4 of the Danish Offroad Nationals were held in the town of Holstebro. The ENB-RC club provided racers with a small, but very technical and fun track layout for racing. The truggy class saw XRAY’s Mike Gosvig take the overall TQ, despite a rough start in qualifying. Before the finals rain soaked the track, and continued to fall throughout the start of the truggy final. Despite the mud, Gosvig would start out front and never look back. After building a 5-lap lead, Gosvig came in for a ‘pit cleaning’ where mechanics quickly removed as much mud and debris as possible to keep the truck running strong. The decision paid off as Gosvig took a convincing win over the field. Jesper Lund would cross the line in second, and Christian Williams third.
