Adam Koch 1st, Nuria Goma 2nd & Riccardo Leccese 3rd >> PKRA Holland Racing
This news piece has not yet been translated but will be soon, thank you for your patience.
I just arrived to France after the PKRA Holland in Den Hague. That was the second stop of the PKRA. I’m super stoked with my second position as it is my best result in an International event so far. After my third place in Mexico the month before I’m now ranked 2nd overall on the Pro Tour.
In the first two days of the event we had pretty strong wind conditions so the organisers decided to start with freestyle as the forecast was not looking so good for the rest of the week and freestylers had to do trials to get into the main event. So on day two they already managed to finish the single eliminations and they even started with the doubles. No racing for us.
Day three was the first day of competition for the racers. We completed only one race as the wind was very light. Ozone team mate Adam Koch won that first race and I managed to get a second place on my 13 meter Edge. The rest of the riders where on 17’s and 18’s. I totally chose the wrong kite sizes for this event. That shows how powerful and big the wind range is on the Edge. I just Love it!
We had four more races during days four and five. Adam, Bryan Lake and Riccardo Leccese (Ozone) were alternating top 3 positions in each race so they were very tight and any one could get first place, which actually was not decided until the very last day.
On the sixth and last day of the competition, Bryan was leading the event, close behind followed Riccardo and Adam in third. Nobody was expecting any more wind. Miraculously it came and two more races were completed. Adam dominated both of them scored two firsts places which gave him a very deserved victory by .04 points. He is now leading the overall PKRA ranking.
It is always great seeing Ozone team riders on the podium, two in the men’s division and myself in women’s.
Now we are just here in Hyeres in day 1, waiting for some wind to fill in. Unfortunately the forecast doesn’t show more than 7 knots for the entire week.
I’ll keep you posted!
