Graham Jarvis: Best in The World!


Julia Hampton

#1 in the world, Graham Jarvis is the best extreme enduro-rider in the game today!

Born in England on April 21, 1975, he has been riding his whole life. He won his first trials event when he was only 10 years old. He continues to live in Yorkshire England today, traveling around the world riding. He rides a Husquvarna 300TE.

Extreme-enduro is a pretty new sport that requires riders to try and ride through seemingly impossible terrain. The terrain covers about everything from boulders, mud, steep rocky inclines, to man-made obstacles like log piles, motorway barriers, large rocks, and tractor tiers.

To be able ride these conditions, Graham Jarvis has to do a lot of modifications to his bike. He has lightened the suspension, added on a FMF exhaust pipe, he uses Hinson basket, and his clutch is made to be able to take large amounts of stress (like when he races in Erzberg).

Erzberg is an Austrian motorcycle enduro-race that began in 1995. It’s held annually in either May or June. It’s held in an open pit mine. At the beginning of the race about 500 riders start from crawling up the walls of the mine. One of the hardest sections of the race is called Carl’s Dinner. In the 2015 race the very first to arrive to this section was Graham Jarvis.

Graham Jarvis has won the 2013, 2015, 2016, and 2017 Erzberg.

He has also won the

Red Bull Romaniacs – 2008, 2011,2012,2013, 2016, 2017
