AJ Philipsen - 1st Place DFC MTB contest 2013
I got the invite to go and compete in a freestyle kitelandboard competition in France organised by DFC (Dunkerque flysurfer club). Still suffering with the flu and feeling sick I jumped on the ferry and headed over with fellow Pushkiting rider Kris Beech. When we arrived it was freezing cold and the tide was in so it was a case of meeting and greeting all the organizers and other competitors.
Once the tide went out the sun also came out and everyone started warming up for the competition, my warm up was not quite along the same lines, mine involved sitting in my car watching feeling quite sick. When the competition was about 5 minutes away i started to get ready by arming myself with the always ready for action Ozone C4 2013 kites and my MBS Pro90 2013 board.
After riding through several rounds the competition was over and everyone headed to the off to the DFC clubhouse for the results.
The results came in and i came 1st and was awarded a large trophy and some other freebies.

I would like to say thank you to my sponsors Ozone kites, MBS boards and Edgeriders.com for their support and helping me win this, and thank you to all the organizers and riders of the competition for running it so well with such a great atmosphere.
Continue riding hard people!
