Saturday, 30 March, SANYA (China): Slovenia’s Rok Florjancic completed his double in Sanya with another impressive showing to win heat 2 and take the Sanya Grand Prix title with maximum points.
Nac [Florjancic] looked to be carrying the fight to his older brother and produced a faultless opening series of tricks until disaster struck and he lost his grip and the bike. The delay to retrieve it proved costly, finishing fourth in heat 2 and third overall.
Italy’s Valerio Calderoni again struggled with his bike, but produced a better performance in heat 2 to take second spot and the runners-up slot.
Aleksandar Petrovic improved on his points score to take third place in heat 2 and finish fourth overall, ahead of Roberto Mariani and Nicolas Denille.
