Teutonia Brazil – Rain spelled complete disaster for the Malarrara Pro Teutonia World Cup. Both Saturdays and Sunday’s activities were canceled due to heavy rain and thunder storms that created unsafe conditions on the race-course and caused flooding in the city of Teutonia. Final results were based on the lone qualifying run made on Friday. Douglas Silva earned the victory based on those times with Kevin Reimer finishing second and Everton Alves was third.
