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.
Teutonia, Brazil – Douglas Silva from Sao Leopoldo, Brazil laid down a blistering run on his home course that was a full three seconds faster than defending champion Kevin Reimer to establish himself as the clear favorite after the first day of qualifying.
