After the WEC round in Spain, the team travelled to Portugal for the 4th round of the season. The weather was good with temperatures up to 30 degrees celcius when Super B rider Vogels started to scout the specials. A lap of 55 kilometers including three specials had to be covered 4 times. Due to the nice weather the tracks were as hard as concrete.
The enduro and supertest were very challenging. The first day Vogels finished 14th, the second day he was 13th. Vogels: ,,It was a tough race, and I'm satisfied with my results. The're a lot of good riders and the gaps are small. I'm looking forward to the next race which is in Italy.''
