Husaberg Extreme Racing Team’s Graham Jarvis got the 2013 extreme off-road racing season started with a win at the The Tough One at Nantmawr Quarry in Shropshire, England, Sunday, January 13.

Jarvis pretty much dominated the race, finishing nearly eight minutes ahead of KTM’s Johnny Walker, with Gas Gas rider Danny McCanney finishing third, KTM rider Paul Bolton fourth and Husaberg pilot Alfredo Gomez rounding out the top five overall.

“I’m really pleased to have won,” said Jarvis who rode a TE300 two-stroke. “There were a lot of world-class riders entered and with this being the first race of the season, it’s always difficult to know just how the race will go.”

This was Jarvis’ second win in the row at The Tough One.
