After a successful start into the season with a victory in Croatia at the first European Championship, Reiterer traveled with his Team to South of Italy to compete at the UIM Aquabike World Championship.

Between the best riders of the World, Reiterer took home the overall victory at the second round of the UIM World Cup.

The racers were fighting on the Italian seafront for the Grand Prix of Italy and more important points for the overall Championship. The young student qualified second, which made up a great starting position for his first moto. On the next day however the wind changed and 2 meter unpredictable ocean waves hit the rough shore of Castro. Due to technical and tactical reasons Reiterer decided to race with his less powerful backup ski.

* Botti simply brilliant as he takes sweet revenge for heat 1 DQ with sensational win in heat 2

* Nac Florjancic makes it two wins out of two over Rok

Sunday, 24 May, CASTRO (Italy): Austria’s Kevin Reiterer and Swedens’s Emma-Nellie Ortendhal both celebrated their maiden heat and GP wins in the UIM-ABP Aquabike World Championship to take overall victory in the Ski GP1 categories at the Grand Prix of Italy.

In Runabout GP1 the overall Grand Prix win went to the UAE’s Khalifa Belselah, but it was his rival Jean-Baptiste Botti who grabbed the headlines, simply destroying the best of a world class field after starting from last place to win by a staggering 50.52 seconds.

It was sweet revenge for the 28-year-old from Porto Vecchio, Corsica, who earlier in the day was stripped of his heat 1 win following a protest by Belselah who was subsequently handed the win. [Read More]

Friday, 22 May, CASTRO (Italy): French trio Jean Baptiste Botti, Jeremy Poret and Jennifer Menard completed a clean sweep in a fiercely contest qualifying session in rough conditions in Castro to claim pole positions for heat 1 of the Grand Prix of Italy.

After being tested to their limits in the morning’s free practice session run in horrendous seas, the conditions eased giving the riders some respite as they went out for a split qualifying session, all riders going in Q1 for 15 minutes, the ten quickest going again in Q2, a shortened 10 minute session, in Ski ladies just the top five going into Q2.

The fight for the pole in Runabout was fought out between Botti, Khalifa Belselah and Yousef Al Abdulrazzaq, the trio trading times and places throughout. [Read More]

ROUGH SEAS OFF CASTRO PUT RIDERS TO THE ULTIMATE TEST

Friday, 22 May, CASTRO (Italy): The world’s best riders were tested to their absolute limits in this morning’s first practice session, with many dropping their bikes and struggling as they faced and tried to tame angry seas and massive swells of the Castro coast.

Ski Gp1’s Kevin Reiterer said the conditions were unbelievable. “It is impossible to try to read the conditions. It is really challenging and just getting round is an achievement,” he said. “There is no structure to the waves one minute you are on top of one then drop into an enormous hole and then find yourself just staring at a wall of water.”

A beaming Marta Sorrentino revelled in the rough conditions, posting the fastest time of the Ladies saying, “I am from Sardinia I have no fear of the waves.”

In Runabout, a trio of Middle East riders Yousef Al Abdulrazzaq, Khalifa Belselah and Thamer Al Darwish locked out the top three spots, Mickael Poret, Alex Barret and Tomaz Kete the quickest in Ski.
