12-year-old wins in style – the photo story!

Harry Schofield and Roos Op de Beeck won the whip offs at the Dirt Masters festival in Winterberg! Not only was the general, ultra-high level in the final astonishing, but above all the callousness of newcomer Harry Schofield, who is just 12 years old and ended up coming out on top. We have a wild potpourri of jumping impressions for you – have fun with the photo story.

A driver’s name is missing? Unfortunately, we didn’t have all the names of the passengers ready right away. Feel free to help us and we’ll put the name in afterwards!

# chainsaw ready? sword dismantled? All right, let’s get started!
