Rio, spectacular!

The Rok Cup season, after the International Final contest in Lonato, gives us one last showcase in Las Vegas for Rok The Rio!

Las Vegas, 3 November 2018

The weekend dedicated to the last Rok event scheduled from Wednesday 31 October to Saturday 3 November on the temporary circuit of the RIO All-Suites Hotel and Casino did not disappoint expectations. In a typical Las Vegas-style setting and audience, the Rok-style event achieved a muchdeserved success. Important numbers reached already here at this very first edition with as many as 215 competitors. In addition to the Rok The Rio Trophy, not to be underestimated is the considerable prize money of $ 35,000 divided as follows: $ 2,500 to the winner, $ 1,000 for P2, $ 750 to third, $ 500 to fourth and $ 250 to the fifth placed, in the categories Vortex Micro ROK, Mini ROK, Junior ROK, Senior ROK, Masters ROK, Shifter ROK and Shifter Masters ROK.

Raising the trophy and beneiting from the prize were: Renato Jader (Master Rok), Parker Delong (Micro Rok), Jenson Altzman (100cc Senior), Jonathan Silva (100cc Master), James Egozi (Mini Rok), Jordon Musser (Shifter Master Rok) , Sebastian Montoya (Junior Rok), Ryan McDermind (Senior Rok), and Mathias Ramirez-Barrero (Shifter Rok).





With 21 starters, the Micro Rok has obtained direct entry into the “club” of the most entertaining categories of the event. After a very tight qualifying, Matias Orjuela takes pole, with Gafrarar and White behind him. The Friday of direct matches awarded Caleb Gafrarar, the most consistent, who won first place. The American already protagonist of previous winter events conirms his top form with two victories and two second places. In second and third place, the couple Orjuela - Delong. Starting with the initial leadership of Gafrarar, the head of the race will change five more times, the “roulette wheel” then stopping on the name of Parker Delong. An authentic outsider, the American took home the win and title of RIO Micro Rok Champion 2018, gaining two positions. Detached by only one tenth was second-placed Caleb Gafrarar, once again among the absolute protagonists and heading to the Mini or Rok. Bronze medal for the Brazilian Bernardo Gentil. Top five for Garzon more than once leader of the race, fifth Orjuel, having started second.
