«We are excited to be taking back the World Champion title in this class as we have been working on it for years now. I am very proud of our team for putting up a great competition, being a great sportsman, and not giving up even for a second, even when things got complicated. The team had to face the challenges of very high temperatures and humidity, but that didn’t stop us from making our dreams come true! We are thankful to our sponsors, without you, it would not have been possible! » – Karina said.
