“I’m super happy to be given the chance to compete at MotoSurf Games in the first ever multibrand Electric Challenge competition on American continent. It was a great battle seeing the differences between the manufacturers in different areas. I took the whole advantage of the Jetsurf board mainly in the technical sections because of its turning abilities which eventually worked best for me to score the overall victory. It was a great racing weekend in Sebring and I cannot wait to race here in America again. I would like to express my big thanks to JetSurf USA for their support to entire MotoSurf Games organization. ”
