PKRA News:Mondial Du Vent and MINI World Cup Mexico

We are just one week away from the start of Mondial du Vent in Leucate, France and four weeks from the first slalom event in Mexico; the MINI kiteboard world cup.  After a great start to the season in Dakhla, Morocco, with perfect wind and waves, the next stop will be in the challenging conditions of Leucate.  Leucate is located in Languedoc Roussillon in southern France at the base of the Pyrenees.  It is one of the windiest destinations on tour because the tramontane can blow up to 50 knots.

This event brings many riders from all over the world and Europe due to its convenient location, great media coverage and almost guaranteed wind.  The competition is one of the toughest on tour with many freestylers registering and battling for the win.  When Tramontane is on the wind is offshore making the spot perfectly flat and very good for freestyle. The wind tends to be gusty because it funnels  down a Valley but still the top riders are able to land some spectacular moves on this great spot.

The organizers and city of Leucate really do a great job promoting the sport and providing things to do for everyone. When the freestyle is not running many other activities are available to keep you entertained for the whole day.
