Matthias Dolderer was officially crowned Germany’s first Red Bull Air Race World Champion on Sunday after the season’s final round in Las Vegas was shortened due to high winds.

The 46-year-old won two of eight events this season enough to clinch the title ahead of Australia’s Matt Hall while recently deceased Austrian Hannes Arch finished third in the overall standings.

Arch, who died in September after his private helicopter crashed in the Austrian Alps, was represented on the final standings podium by his girlfriend Miriam Holler.
