Mondial du Vent 2010 wraps up in Leucate, France

An award ceremony was held late this afternoon at the event site where numerous amounts of spectators stood to watch as Andy Yates (Slingshot, AUD) stood proudly on top of the podium grinning from ear to ear as he received recognition as the men’s Mondial du Vent 2010 single elimination Champion, as well as his first PKRA title.

Yates has proved that he is going to be a tough competitor throughout the 2010 PKRA tour season. In a recent conversation with one of the official PKRA judges, he states that Yates competes with world-class style, amazing execution and difficulty. Dutch competitor Youri Zoon (Slingshot, NED) ranked second in this competition followed by Spanish rider Alex Pastor (Airush, ESP) who took third.

In the women’s single elimination division it was a successful day for Spanish rider Gisela Pulido (Airush, ESP) who stood at the top of the podium as the women’s Mondial du Vent single elimination champion. Bruna Kajiya (Flexifoil, BRA) followed closely behind in second position and Polish rider Karolina Winkowska (Slingshot, POL) took third place.

The Mondial du Vent was a great event with lots of excitement and entertainment. A large sum of fans, spectators, and tourist came from all around the world to be part of all the fun here in Leucate, La Franqui. Congratulations to the Mondial du Vent Champions.

We look forward to the next tour stop in North America.

The Mondial du Vent was supported in part by Volkswagen Utilitaires, Orangina, O'Neill, Orange, RMC, Leucate, PKRA, Veolia, Mini Libre, Fance Televisions and la Region Lanquedoc Roussillon.
