PKRA News:Mondial du Vent Leucate Registration

Written by PKRA on . Posted in News

The best riders from all over the world are here in Leucate to win the Mondial Du Vent on the second stop of the PKRA 2013.  This is the 17th edition of the Mondial du Vent and the 6th with the PKRA.  Winning this PKRA event brings a lot of prestige due to the history of the event and the extreme conditions. This week will be no exception with the winds forecasted to be 30 knots for the first three days of competition.

\"\"

The top riders came out in force with Youri Zoon, Alex Pastor, Karolina Winkowska, Gisela Pulido and many more.  The big surprise for this event is the return of Aaron Hadlow to PKRA competitions. He is a five-time world champion and regarded as one of the pioneers and top riders in the sport.  61 riders have registered for this event, 50 men and 11 women from over 20 countries will be on the water.

\"\"

The main event of men has 24 spots available, 8 are for the top preceded riders, 2 are for the wildcards chosen by the organization; for this event it will be Sebastian Garat and Paul Serin, and then the 40 other riders have to compete for 14 spots.  Qualifying for a PKRA event is already a competition on its own and a tough battle with lots of pressure.  The way the qualifiers work: the first round will consist of 10 heats and the winner of each heat will be qualified for the main event and the 30 remaining riders would have to go to two more rounds to qualify for the final four spots.

\"\"

The town of Leucate and the organizers of the Mondial du Vent have once again set up a great village and venue for the competition.   The wind forecast is absolutely brilliant and we should have some amazing action right from the start at 9:30 AM Saturday morning.

The entire competition will be broadcast live on www.Prokitetour.com where you can follow the results and heat scores and also follow us on Facebook and Twitter for the latest news updates.

The live feed will start at 10 AM on Saturday morning April 20.
