KTA News:Rodwald and Novotna claim the European Freestyle titles at Kitesurf Tour Europe in Italy

Written by KTA on . Posted in News

The previous night’s festivities may have had an impact on the performance of many today as one of the biggest parties in Southern Italy was held at Hang Loose beach with over 2000 people present.

With the wind blowing hard there was no time to waste and the Freestyle competition quickly got underway. The double elimination round would give the riders a second chance to claim the European title and with today’s gusty weather it wasn’t an easy task. Crashes and tight battles were on the menu today. In the women’s race it was once again a final between Czech Republic’s Novotna and local rider Bagnoli. Novotna proved her superiority and defended her European title, easily winning today’s heat.
