Rashid Al-Mulla on pole position in Freestyle in Olbia

Chris Davies on 2nd June 2018

Neither Nak nor Roc Floranjcic registered for the Freestyle discipline at the second round of the UIM-ABP Aquabike World Championship in Sardinia and that left the door wide open for Team Abu Dhabi’s Rashed Al-Mulla to deliver another impressive artistic set on the water with his customary flips, spins and somersaults in pole position qualifying.

The Emirati impressed the judges with a pole-winning score of 97 points, including a massive 34 for variety and 30 for quantity. His closest rival was Italy’s Roberto Mariani on 82 points and Paolo Nunes, Alexander Kurumshin and Alberto Camerlengo were a distant third, fourth and fifth.

Al-Tayer qualifies second in Runabout GP1

Team Abu Dhabi’s Rashed Al-Tayer was seventh in the opening Runabout GP1 practice session on Friday and improved his best lap time by eight seconds in a pre-qualifying session that was won by Denmark’s Marcus Jorgensen.

But the Emirati left his best form to the qualifying session on Friday evening and a lap of 1min 21.80sec placed Al-Tayer in second position for the Moto 1 race behind pole winner Jorgensen and in front of Kuwait’s Youssef Abdulrazzaq.
