MORINI GRABS FIRST AT ERZBERG
July 1 2009.


Austrian Hans Leitner rode a Moto Morini Scrambler to a surprise victory in the Streetbike class at the Iron Road Prologue. Held in a disused iron works at Erzberg in Austria, hence its name, the 'Iron Road' is a 14km long rough gravel track snaking up the side of the red mountain.

Riding a standard Moto Morini Scrambler for Team BLM, Leitner amazed spectators and competitors alike by recording a time so fast that, had his machine been eligible, he would have qualified on the fifth row for the Red Bull Hare Scramble, the main race of the day that is rated as the toughest enduro in the world.
