BERNAAUT AND MORLAES CROWNED EUROPEAN CHAMPIONS IN SKI GP1
*Reinaas tops standings in GP2 and GP3 – Eighth title for Mariani in Freestyle
Sunday, 4 September, Nyiregyhaza-Levelek (Hungary): Belgium’s Anthony Bernaaut gained the UIM-ABP Aquabike Ski GP1 European title after yet another imperious performance to win the Grand Prix of Hungary, with Virginie Morlaes taking her first European title in Ski Ladies Division.
Beernaut was once again almost faultless in a campaign that has always seen him on the first and second step of the podium in all the Championship’s Grand Prix and carding the perfect score winning all three Motos in Grand Prix of Hungary to seal the European title comfortably from Mattias Reinaas.
Morlaes held off the challenge of Estonia’s Jasmiin Ypraus who is the winner of the Grand Prix with a perfect score ahead of the French rider with Joana Gracia completing the Grand Prix podium.
Ypraus finished the Championship with only 3 points less than Morlaes and probably she paid the problem she had in Grand Prix of Poland when she wasn’t able to finish Moto 2 for technical reasons. Sweden’s Janina Johansson took the third step of the Championship Podium.
Estonia’s Mattia Reinaas was able to enjoy the final Moto knowing that he had already secured the Ski GP2 European title taking also the Grand Prix title ahead of Matteo Valente second and Henri Koppas runner-up in both podiums.
This year Reinaas not only confirmed his European Title in Ski GP2 but also claimed the Ski GP3 championship title with the 2 portuguese Diogo Barbosa and Luisa Beja on the second and third step of the podium.
Grand Prix of Hungary title also for Mattias Reinaas ahead of the 2 young riders coming from the Ski Juniors categories Hungary’s Jaszai Csongor and Portugal’s Manuel Lete.
In Freestyle Roberto Mariani completed the clean sweep to win the Grand Prix title and claim his eighth European championship title from Massimo Accumulo e Paulo Nunes.
