PKRA News:Racing Heats Up at the Beetle Kitesurf World Cup

Two full rounds of racing were completed at the beetle kite surf World Cup in Saint Peter Ording Germany. The racing did not start until four in the afternoon, but once it was underway the action was intense.  Julien Kerneur and Christine Boenniger won both finals today.  On the men’s side of racing many positions changes took place throughout the races and every race was entertaining to watch.  Kerneur and Boenniger both have the overall lead at the Beetle kitesurf World Cup.

The heats were reshuffled to make the racing more efficient so that more rounds could be completed faster. On the men’s side 3 heats of 7 were in the 1st round, with the top 3 of each heat advancing to the final. On the women side one super final was run during every round, meaning that every heat was crucial for the girls.

The first final Kerneur was in the lead from the start and stayed in front the whole way, Lake was on his tail and there was a strong battle in the back for 3rd.  Gruber got his 3rd place while Castel and Withington were fighting in the back, while Smith came in 4th.  For the women Boenniger was well in front with Sysoeva in race one.

The last 2 races of the day were the most exciting. All the competitors have adapted to the light wind and were comfortable with the conditions. The women were up first with Boenniger coming full speed at the gates and taking the lead, she was followed by Tatiana Sysoeva.  The two women stayed in first and second position until the finish, the battle was for third place in between Boese and Lutz.  Lutz caught up to Kristine on the last leg and got her for her first 3rd place finish of the event.

\"Racing

All the races today were very exciting with many intense starts, lead changes, technical moves, gear choices and good sportsmanship that made the day a success.  Tomorrow the slalom racers will be on the water before the freestylers and hopefully will get some stronger winds to compete in different conditions.  According to the forecast, it looks like the freestyler will be back on the water late afternoon when the wind picks up.
