A perfect season is something that most riders can only dream of whatever the level of competition – so to remain unbeaten across the course of a full World Championship season is a remarkable achievement.
Well, that is exactly the incredible feat that battling Briton Jane Daniels – Fantic managed this year as she quite simply blew her opposition away in the FIM Women’s Enduro World Championship.
The twenty-eight-year-old came out fighting at the opening round at Lalin in north-west Spain and seized control of the title chase from the get-go.
Entering its second full season, the series was extended for this year, but Daniels obviously felt no need to pace herself over the four rounds and eight points-paying days of competition.
Winning both days in Spain in early May by over a minute, Daniels only had a week to recover before the competition moved to Peso da Regua in Portugal where she streaked to another dazzling double win.
Firmly in control at the halfway stage, Daniels was back in Portugal at the start of July – and back on top of the podium, though it was by no means a walk in the park, and she faced fierce opposition.
Still, she kept her right wrist busy as she collected another maximum haul of points in Coimbra to make sure that she was perfectly poised to sew up the title on the opening day at Zschopau in Germany with a true champion’s performance and her biggest winning margin of the year.
With the title in the bag, Daniels could have cruised on day two, although instead she chose to put the seal on her perfect season!
