Three reasons to sit up and watch Jonny Walker
A Trials background was a big plus for Walker who grew up in Cumbria in the north of England. As with peers like Taddy Blazusiak and Graham Jarvis the delicate feel and balance of the discipline helped immensely when mixed with speed.
2. His character
The young, carefree demeanour means that Walker is very much the youthful face of a sport that tends to feature experienced and hardened off-roaders. There is slightly more depth to Jonny, as he admits …
Romaniacs is already in the bag, Erzberg was snared two years ago as well as this year. Now the natural progression has to be Blazusiak’s unofficial crown as world number one in the Extreme Enduro arena. If there is a rider with the skill, mentality, energy and verve to get the job done then it is Walker and the 2014 Romaniacs victory was a pretty hefty statement that he is on his way.
