Thursday, 30 May, OLBIA (Italy): Ski GP1 defending world champion Kevin Reiterer will be looking to extend his points advantage heading into this weekend’s Grand Prix of Italy – round 2 of the UIM-ABP Aquabike World Championship, but will be wary of the challenges he is likely to face.
The Victory [Team] rider got off to a flyer at the opener in Portugal winning all three Motos to open up an 11 points advantage in the standings from Daniel Svae Andersen on 64, with Marten Manni and Axel Courtois tied on 51 points. “Kevin ticks all the right boxes, not merely for himself, but for an outfit like Victory Team where we really set a high standard,” noted Huraiz Bin Huraiz, Chairman of the Board of Directors at Victory Team.
“He’s off to a fantastic start to the season and knowing his pedigree we would expect him to continue with this form for the remainder of the season. He is a gentleman and a true world champion as he stays focused on what he’s got to achieve,” he added. “Kevin is a thorough professional who knows what is required of him,”
“We have our small talks and he is so receptive of the role he has to play to keep his winning momentum going from one race to the other. He is a fast learner who is always on the lookout to improve his racing standards.”
