UZARE WINS GRAND PRIX TITLE - NILBE TAKES MAIDEN MOTO WIN

Sunday, 3 June, OLBIA (Sardinia, Italy): Second place in today’s Moto in Ski Ladies at the UIM-ABP Grand Prix of the Mediterranean was good enough to give Latvia’s Krista Uzare her second successive Grand Prix title of the season, with Estonia’s Katriin Nilbe producing an outstanding performance to take her maiden Moto win and second overall.

 

Sweden’s Emma-Nellie Ortendahl came home in third place to take the final step on the Grand Prix podium.

 

Nilbe led the 10 lap Moto from start-to-finish to run out a comfortable winner from Uzare by 16.13s, with Ortendahl making up for a poor start and moving up through from lying in seventh at the end of lap 1 and into the podium place after passing Jonna Borgstrom on lap seven.

 

Britain’s Mollie Fearn produced yet another solid performance finishing in fifth, with Kylie Ellmers getting her best result of the weekend in sixth.
