HODGES CELEBRATES FIRST PRO WORLDS TITLE

04.01.2018

PRO class

Reece Hodges from the UK has won his very first World Championship title in Pro class. Qualifying 3rd he had to battle it out with Jhonny Hernandez from Spain and Michitaka Yanagisawa from Japan. The lead tossed several times and despite a few small errors Reece managed to clinch the title with just 0.6 seconds on the hard charging Hernandez and 0.8 on Yanagisawa who set the fastest lap in this A-Main final with 13.744. The big absentee was of course pole-sitter Mathias Nedrebø who couldn't free himself up for the main finals.
