Ten-year-old Kristian Daniel, an American from Los Angeles now living with his parents in Spain, scored his first win of the season in the Dani Rivas Cup MiniGP series in Segovia, Spain.

His victory over championship leader Jesús Ríos combined with the extra two points for scoring the fastest lap saw Daniel close the gap down to a mere 6 points with 112 points still in play in the final two dobles rounds.

Ríos started from pole in both races but in race one but there was contact on the first lap when Kristian Daniel went up the inside on lap one. Ríos made a move toward the inside as well and both riders went down. Daniel rejoined and set fastest lap (worth two points) en route to fourth place while Ríos was unable to continue. Ríos had, to that point, won all four races held and, even after his first DNF, still led Daniel by thirteen points after five races.

At the start of race 6, Ríos held of Daniel into turn one and the American followed the Spaniard until the next-to-last lap when Daniel executed a block pass in a tight left-hander and then held on to take the win from Ríos with Sergio Hidalgo Vidal, winner of the previous race, third.

The points system of the Dani Rivas Cup employs the MotoGP points system, but with an additional two points awarded for pole for the event and two points for fastest lap in each  individual race. That means that there are 112 points in play in the final two doble races scheduled for October 9th in 13th and that means that Ríos and Daniel Jr have the best mathematical options to the title. (All riders use standard Honda NSF 100cc machines.)

Kristian Daniel Snr. - Kristian's Dad:

"It was an emotional weekend for Willy Rivas, organizer of the Dani Rivas Cup because the fifth and sixth rounds of the championship were held on the same day that the Spanish rider Dani Rivas, Willie's son, died along with fellow Spaniard Bernat Martinez at the start of the MotoAmerica Superbike race at Laguna Seca. All involved in the series and very grateful to Willie Davis for his efforts and for his love of the sport."
