The SBT P1 AquaX Kissimmee/St. Cloud Grand Prix at the weekend, the opening event of the P1 AquaX USA race season, saw Eric “The Eagle” Francis makes an impressive comeback by taking victory in the Pro Endurance class.

When asked what happened to reignite his fire, Eric replied: “After coming off a year of not racing when Covid hit, I was not up to par mentally or physically last year and it took 2021 to get my head back in the game and back in racing mode.”

Young Tory Snyder performed consistently over the two days to take second place ahead of Brian Baldwin.

Proving that age is only a number as he celebrated his 59th birthday, Enrique Chia was victorious in the Amateur 300 class. Joe Johnson suffered some mechanical issues but finished high enough in his first two races to finish second, followed by Todd Czarcinski.

Sam Nehme dominated the Am 200 racing on both days. Isiah Washington was able to fend off Melvin Canals to finish in second place.

The Jr Enduro class made its debut on East Lake Toho with Colombian rider Mariana Perdomo finishing on top of the podium. She was unable to catch Gavin Russo in the opening race but came back in style by winning the next two races. Aged 14-15, the riders competed for 20 minutes in each race on a modified AquaX course.
