Husaberg brings you the standings update after race day 5 of the 2011 ISDE in Finland.
Tarkkala leads the way for Husaberg riders at 2011 ISDE
Today two of the six tests had to be cancelled due to the tough weather and track conditions. Finland expanded their lead over Spain by another 6 minutes and looks pretty save with only the final MX to go. Team Spain on the other hand moved away further from the US and is pretty save in second. Although missing team leader Joakim Ljunggren Sweden didn’t lose too much time and stays in 4th ahead of the Netherlands.
In the Junior Trophy France expanded their lead over Sweden by more than 5 minutes and with Mathias Bellino being an MX specialist look pretty determined to take the Junior Trophy home tomorrow. The UK Team with Alex Rockwell remains a save 3rd.

No further DNFs for the Husaberg riders today with only the final MX to go tomorrow. Marko Tarkkala is still in a save lead of now over 3 minutes in E3 and also more than 45 seconds ahead of 4th placed rider overall.
Mathias Bellino was 4th fastest in E2 and closed in on Hans Vogels today to only 11 seconds in the fight for second best placed Husaberg rider overall and for 9th position in E2. So it will be a big battle between the two of them tomorrow on the MX track.
