Heineken and Bridge win Medal Series in Soma Bay, Egypt, crowning them African Open Kiteracing Champions

Written by Editor on . Posted in News

Friday’s medal racing climax at the 2013 African Course Racing Championship in Soma Bay, Egypt dawned with lighter conditions compared to the past two days, and all was set for the most tense day of racing so far.

With riders only carrying points equivalent to their position on the leaderboard into the final day, there was all to play for. The ten riders in each of the men’s and women’s events competed in a repechage series, with only the top three on each leaderboard guaranteed a place in the final race off. The bottom four riders, positions 7 to 10, were to race off first, with the top finisher progressing through to the next round, which then pitched the riders in positions 4-7 against each other and rewarded only the top finisher with a place in the finals.
