Cable records another Yamaha EX/EXR Cup victory
The third round of this year’s P1 Jetcross international series this weekend saw riders from 12 countries head to Belgium’s home of jet ski-ing. Spanning some 4km and famed for its world-class facilities and beautiful environment, Les Lacs de l’Eau d’Heure hosted the Jetcross Grand Prix of Belgium and served up a feast of stand-up racing that included the Yamaha EX/EXR Cup.
Young British rider Elliot Cable extended his winning streak in this season’s Cup competition and said: “It was a great weekend of racing in perfect weather and I’m delighted to have extended my unbeaten run. I’m now looking forward to returning to Belgium this coming weekend to race in Ostend, where I’ll be hoping for rough conditions on the North Sea coast.” The 24-year-old from Yorkshire only began racing last year and is enjoying his success in the new Yamaha competition.
Julien Baslen, head of P1 Jetcross, was excited about the weekend’s racing on the largest lake area in Belgium: “The mix of a world-class venue and world-class competitors had all the right ingredients. It is the home of the O2R Club, one of the biggest jet ski clubs in Europe with more than 200 members, and our Jetcross Grand Prix and Yamaha EX/EXR Cup competiton launched three weeks of racing at the venue.”
The race site included a Yamaha-dedicated pit area for the owners of EX and EXR WaveRunners competing in the new Yamaha EX/EXR Cup. Each event in the series operates as a separate competition with trophies being presented on the final day of the race weekend. The 2019 Cup competition kicked off in early May and includes a total of eight P1 AquaX and Jetcross race weekends in France, Belgium, Spain and England through to October. The riders now head to the West Flanders seaside resort of Ostend which will host a P1 AquaX EuroTour event for the first time.
