Race 1 – bad luck for Friday’s winner Ivo Strouhal

Lukáš Záhorský took the 1st place and hurried for the victory. He won the race and scored important 22 points for the championship. Absolutely heroic pefromance was shown by Martin Šula. After an accident in the first lap, he managed to build his race up from the back of the field and came in fantastic 2nd. Israeli Or Yanai did a great job – finished 3rd and made it to a chance of a podium scoring. Michal Lošťák finally avoided all the technical issues and finished 4th. Mexican jetsurfer Pablo Otero found a good rythm and finished in solid 5th and appeared inside the top five for a very first time in his career.
