Thierry Guibal >> 100km of Leucate Race
Cette news n\'est pas encore traduite et le sera bientôt, merci de votre patience.
La Franqui hosted the mythic “100km of Leucate” race. Wind conditions were very messy, 20 knots gusting to 35kts and upon that blowing in all directions! The race was quite technical with high speed parts.
Usually I’d have used my Yakuza GT 5.5, but as I just recovered from a wrist fracture done in November, my friend Thomas Bouzerand lent me his 5.0 Method (as he decided to start the race with a Method 4.0 and finally finished with a Yakuza GT 4.5).
That was my first race with the Method but I was told by other pilots that this kite has incredible performances.
As soon as the race began, I was in 4th position. Laps after laps I finally reached 2nd place in total security but quite easily due to the huge depower of the Method. Even if sometimes I was undersized due to this fu***ing wind, I was very surprised by the handiness and the performances of the Method.
