PKRA News:Registration and Light winds in Fuerteventura

Written by PKRA on . Posted in News

The first day of the Fuerteventura World Cup in and 100th event of the PKRA started with registration and light winds.   All the Slalom racers registered for the 3rd stop of the year.  Everyone was expecting high winds early on, but the trade winds were capricious.  All the riders took the time to tune their gear, go for an SUP session and enjoyed the perfect weather.  Competiton will resume tomorrow when the trades return.

The men’s fleet is full of top competitors like Julien Kerneur, Adam Withington, Oswald Smith and many more.  Bryan Lake is not here to win a third consecutive race so someone else will walk away with €3000 and hoist the trophy of the Fuerteventura World Cup in its 28th consecutive edition.  Many freestyle competitors entered this event looking for chance to upset the top racers in the world.  Reno Romeu, Paul Serin, Chirs Bobryk are just some of the big names that are entered in the Slalom.  On the womens side Gisela Pulido and Karolina Winkowska the best freestylers in the world will also be competiting in both freestyle and slalom.

The high winds will provide a great testing ground for full speed slalom racing.  The past two events have taken place in rather light winds, so this will be a change for the racers.  For this event, some competitors brought twin tip boards to see if they might have an advantage in high wind and around the marks.  The forecast is calling for the winds to return tomorrow and then just keeps building for the rest of the week.  All the races will be LIVE, so make sure you tune in and follow us on Facebook and Twitter.
