Re: Chen Thrills Home Fans with Near Flawless Outing at Formula Kite Asians in China

Both the articles, the video and the website make it really difficult to understand what is going on. I can see that Taradin is leading the World cup, but nobody else from the Top 5, men and women, was competing in this cup. Why is that? What is foil racing really about?
