Graham lived up to his “silent assassin” nickname to kick off day one of Redbull Romaniacs on Thursday the 28th of July. The next stage of the Hard Enduro World Championship took riders to the ‘the world’s toughest hard enduro rally’ in the form of the urban yet moutainess setting of Romania.
Through a whole heap of dry and difficult climbs on this first of four days in the mountains, Graham Jarvis clawed time back on his P11 start position, making inroads on those in front. Typically, the biggest gains came on the hardest hills where he said he had “plenty of energy”. Riding mindful last year’s injury which came on day two, Graham was happy with the first day victory but also said he knows there’s a long way to go.
Day 2 of four at the 2022 Romaniacs saw the clouds blow in and as riders rose from their beds at four AM, they made their ways to the start in the dark, facing a maximum of 2400 metres
Firstly, we would like to thank everyone whom came down to see us at the Adventure Bike Rider Festival at Ragley Hall over the weekend. We had a small pitch set up where we were showcasing Husqvarna’s first adventure bike, the Norden 901.
The ABR Festival was the perfect launch event for our first adventure tour, based in Portugal, we have a world exclusive by having seven Nordon 901’s ready for tours and rental.
A special thanks to everyone at the ABR Festival who signed up for Jarvis training on Saturday and Sunday. We had an overwhelming number of bikers sign up for the Jarvis training with our Wales tour operator Grant Churchwood, who worked extremely hard to ensure all bikers got the most out of the 30 mins of training- well done Grant!
Thanks to everyone who entered our competition for the chance to win a free Norden 901 Portugal tour, worth

A third-place finish for Jono in harsh conditions for round 1 of the UK Extreme Championship
Last Sunday (13/2/2022) saw Jarvis Racing compete in Rd1 of the Uk Extreme Championship. Jono Richardson and Sam Winterburn kickstarted their UK Extreme Championship campaigns at the Parkwood Off Road Centre at Tong, near Bradford. UK weather was in full force on race day as riders took on the harsh conditions in Tong. The rain persisted throughout creating slippery and muddy conditions for the riders- adding to an already difficult course.

This is what Graham Jarvis had to say about the new tour:
"I'm delighted to finally officially open Jarvis Signature Tour Australia! Over the past 12 months we've been working hard to get this tour set up and allow riders from all over the world to experience cool terrains. Tim is an excellent rider and i
Well a day in the hospital and the MRI scan is as feared. Damaged ACL.... I’m going to hopefully get it done back in Spain next week if all goes to plan but that has pretty much wrecked my race year and schedule. I’ll keep you all updated on my plans and progress. Thank you for the thousands of kind messages of support, it really helps right now. Hope to see you soon. Graham
So today we had a tricky start, I got lost in the low morning mist/fog, taking a wrong turn which lost me a few minutes. I then hit a ditch and banged my leg....
After that early drama, I managed to find a bit of rhythm and picked up the pace. The conditions were really mixed throughout the day, some really slippery grass and some dry sections too. Fortunately, the Gold riders missed some of the rain which made some of the descents really tricky for the Silver class riders later on in the afternoon.
Overall I'm chuffed with the P1 today as you can imagine and with a small gap to Mani and Wade but this is just Day 1 so we've got 3 more days of this and you can expect anything to happen. I'm off to get a bit of rest now as I'm sure the overnight in the tent tomorrow won't be as comfortable as the apartment!
Looking forward to a great day tomorrow!
Thanks to all photographers especially
We're all set for the exciting 3rd Round of the FIM Hard Enduro World Championship at Abestone in the mountains of Tuscany Graham will join Billy Bolt and Alfredo Gomez in the Rockstar Husqvarna Factory lineup with the terrain perfectly suited to Graham's smooth technical riding style.
Unfortunately, most of the Jarvis Husqvarna Racing team – Will Hoare, Jono Richardson and Sam Winterburn – will not be there due to the covid restrictions from the UK.
Teodor Kabakchiev will be there though. Having done more racing hours this year than virtually any rider in the series, fresh off his win last weekend in Romania, he could surprise a few of the big-name factory riders!!
Day 1 Test Update.
P1. Billy P2. Mani P3. Jarv1s
Day 2. Qualifying
A tight contest today with Billy topping the time sheet from Mani again. Special Test 2 saw Jarv1s in 7th and Teo in 8th, setting them both up for potential Top 5 finishes in tomorrow's big race!
Team Jarvis all made the trip to the stunning city of Porto in May for the 1st round of the FIM Extreme Enduro world championship. Unfortunately, the planned feature race was cancelled due to a Covid hotspot on the route so a shortened supercross event was organised instead which ensured that some racing would occur. The Race would have been one of the most spectacular and ideally suited to the team, but following heavy overnight rain, it was mutually agreed by the event organiser and the FIM that 2021 championship points would not be awarded at this first round but that racing would continue.
On the Sunday, Graham produced one of the surprise performances on the day and proved himself a model of consistency - a trio of fourth place results earning him third overall.
"After the news late on Thursday evening that the original event format wouldn't go ahead, I think everyone - especially the event organisers - made the best of a difficult situation. The mountains are more
