KTE News:New Discipline for 2014

Written by KTE on . Posted in News

The Kitesurf Tour Europe will have some changes for the season 2014. We decided to add a new discipline - the Twin Tip Racing. There will be also important changes for the Freestyle and Formula Racing disciplines. 

The year has just begun and we are happy to provide you step by step with important information about the Kitesurf Tour Europe 2014. Not all tour stops are confirmed yet, but we will be able to announce them as soon as possible. We will add a new discipline – the Twin Tip Racing – to our already existing disciplines Freestyle and Formula Racing. 

 

Why did we do that? 

 

In the past we got some requests to organize a race, where everyone could take part without equipment restrictions. With this new discipline we open the competition to every kiteboarder around the world. 

This Twin Tip Racing will add the normal kite-action only on Saturday and Sunday. If someone would like to take part at the Formula Racing he/she needs to be equipped with a race-board and kites, which are all registered at the IKA. This discipline is made for riders who are ambitious to the professional regattas. The Twin Tip Racing will we open to everyone who likes Kiteboarding and who likes to experience a new challenge. The Regatta-Course will be set in an easy way, so that every Kiteboarder can ride this course with his/her Twin Tip Board. Within this discipline there will be no restriction of entry numbers. The Kiteboarding Industry would be able to support this discipline and to take the chance to hand out boards and kites, for testing, to the riders.

The Freestyle discipline will have some changes as well. Within several meetings we have decided to decrease the number of participants from 48 to 32 for each division. This will guarantee higher quality within the competition and a better time management for the organization, sports crew and riders.  More information for the Freestyler here.  

 

The last discipline we would like to introduce is the Formula Racing. Like in Freestyle we have decided to decrease the number of participants from 48 to 24 for each division. This discipline is only for rider who compete with IKA Registered equipment. This also guarantees a higher level for the competition. More information and facts are here.
