"I am very happy to be a part of the P1 AquaX event and look forward to participating in the growth of this exciting new series." explained Mike.

He will join the P1 team next weekend in St Cloud, Florida for the climax of the first season of AquaX racing in the USA, when more than 35 riders will be competing.

AquaX championship manager Lisa Barsby said: "The AquaX USA championship has gone from strength to strength and to think that we launched in June with just 7 riders and now 4 races later we have 38 signed up for the finale.

With this in mind we need to step up our game and to have Mike on board will certainly help in this process".

The on water action starts at 11.30am on Saturday with the P1 Superstock qualifying races on East Lake Tohopekaliga in St. Cloud, FL.  The first AquaX race of the weekend will start at 1.15pm with the Superpole race.
