The first race of the Hard Enduro World Championship 2022 season was heldon 5-6-7 April in Israel, near the Dead Sea. MINUS 400, the name of the competition, is directly connected to the Dead Sea, which is located at an altitude of less than 400 meters below sea level, in the heart of the desert. In this unique setting David Cyprian, our young rider from the Czech Republic, returned to take part in the World Championship after almost 2 years of inactivity following a bad injury, causing him to miss the entire 2020 and 2021 seasons. David worked hard last winter in preparation for his return to the most important worldwide races, and in return achieved excellent results: throughout the three days of competition, Cyprian always ranked in the top ten, performing his best on the second day, only missing the top five ranking by just a few seconds. The second race day was held in the desert, under very hot weather conditions (41 degrees), nonetheless he made it to sixth place. On the following day, despite a mistake that lost him almost 15 minutes, David was still able to finish among the first top ten bikers (9th overall) in the main race. Now that David Cyprian is back competing in the most important racing events, we expect great things for the next World Championships, with its first race being held in about a month in Serbia.
