RRD News:Julien Kerneur keeps leading the Beetle PKRA Slalom in Saint Peter Ording

Written by RRD on . Posted in Industry News

With the winds never picking up over 12 knots, a full day of racing was the call for today at the Beetle Kitesurf World Cup, Saint peter Ording Germany. The battle was fierce every final, everyone was a contender to get a top spot. Kerneur and Lake each won a couple of races and the rest of the fleet took turn finishing in 3rd. Luca Marcis rises to 9th place overall thanks to his constant presence in the winners’ finals.
To be noted that Christian May (RRD German Distributor) is in 14th position, proving his great skill and shape… well done Christianone!!!

On the men’s side of racing every final was intense from the start to the finish. The course was set up with four marks with the first leg around 400m and the others around 300m. The first leg allows the racers time to spread out before the first mark, to make sure they do not all arrive at the same time and have kaos at the first mark with kites tangling. The second Mark was set up a bit off the wind so the racers had to move their kites to achieve maximum speed, and the last two legs were set up for speed. The course gave competitors many passing opportunities and riders were constantly going neck and neck.

Julien Kereneur won the first two races and Bryan Lake was a close second behind him.
In race three and four it was a different story with Brian Lake taking command of the top spots and Julien Kerneur crashing out.

At the end of the day Julien Kerneur is in the lead of the event but only by one win, so the fight for the final victory is still completely open and Julien (who already proved being the faster one on the race course) has to keep calm and concentrated to take home the result.
