>Reiterer, end of 2017 season
The final round of the ABP World Championship took place in stunning Sharjah,UAE. It was the last time of the year the best racers on the planet went for a three moto battle. Everyone had his goals - whether to clinch the title, improve on the standings or make a statement for the off season – everything was on line. It seems like Reiterer was on a run. Undefeated in Sharjah Reiterer pulled out two wins on the first day of racing putting him back up on a podium finish in the World Championship standings after scoring two DNFs in the first of four rounds. However, an electrical failure in the last moto tosses him back to second place for the Grand Prix of Sharjah. “I am super happy to pull the wins off. Being sick for a week and even getting here laying in bed and skipping all tests and free practices I was just hoping for the best. Two holeshots made my life easier and I was quickly regaining energy when the days went by. Yeah good to make the best out of the season and finishing second in the World Championship.” explains the Austrian sportsman. Reiterer improved his World Championship position with perfect finishes to second overall, defeated by Quinten Bossche (BEL) who clinched his first World title. For such a bad start to the season the Austrian can be satisfied to be ABP Vize World Champion once again. “Yes it was a year with many ups and downs, we won an European Championship title, got second in the World Cup, got smashed at King’s Cup and won two out of the four Grand Prix. I definitely have to regroup, look at possibilities and a well structured plan for next year and come back swinging.” We wish a speedy recovery to Team mate Jonna Borgström, whose season came to a painful end suffering a triple break to her right arm after crashing heavily.
