Al Mulla pulled off a stunning win.

In Denia, defending world champion Yousef Al Abdulrazzaq of Kuwait simply outclassed the field to complete his Runabout GP1 double.

Estelle (Ski Ladies GP1) and Jeremy Poret (Ski Division GP1), of France, created a little piece of history by becoming the first brother and sister to climb onto the top step of the podium and win Grand Prix titles at the same event.

But the most surprising result of the day was produced by Skydive Dubai’s Al Mulla.

The Emirati produced a second stunning performance to beat both Rok and Nac Florjancic for the second time in two days to take his first Grand Prix title. Rok turned the tables on his brother in Heat 2 to take second overall.

In a somewhat processional second heat in Runabout GP1 Al Abdulrazzaq was the standout rider, leading from start-to-finish to claim overall victory with his second win in two days.

“Today the conditions were very different. I grabbed the lead from the start and kept a good pace and was able to pull away and control the race,” said Al Abdulrazzaq.

Denmark’s Marcus Jorgensen made it two podiums in two Grand Prix, taking second overall with third place after finishing second in Heat 1.

Britain’s James Bushell made a brilliant start from sixth to finish second and take third overall for his second podium in two outings on the UIM-ABP tour.
