Maris Strombergs came to South Africa in hopes of repeating his 2008 World Championship victory.
Strombergs showed why he is the fastest racere in th world as her was never in peril as he esily transferred to the finals at the purpose-built track at the Royal Showgrounds.
In the final race of the World Championships, Maris took a slight holeshot lead over local favorite Sifiso Nhlapo. Maris and Skizo were a tight one-two until Maris pulled a bike length lead in the rhythm section in rout to his second World Title in 3 years.
In the Junior Men’s final Free Agent Connor Fields took a huge holeshot and was headed for the biggest victory of his career when he got crossed-up in the rhythym section and crashed heavily allowing allowing French rider Sylvain Andre to grab the victory from Free Agent Pro Kristers Lejins (Latvia (http://www NULL.bikeworldnews NULL.com/tag/latvia/)) and Twan van Gendt (Netherlands (http://www NULL.bikeworldnews NULL.com/tag/netherlands/)).
In addition to Maris’ title, Free Agent won three other World Titles. Dorus Brink took home World Champion Cruiser. David Oquendo won the World Champion Junior Cruiser title and Marco Dellisola (Free Agent/Stay Strong) became World Champion in the Masters class.
