BAKL Review | The Mega Pod
We could hear that you were both very exhausted on this episode. But still a very good recap !
About the good and bad of this last event, I think you listed all the points.

Of course, the main problem was the duration of the event: 5 days is way too long and you loose interest at the end. 1 day for the amateur/women fleet and 1 day for the Pro is the good formula. They manage to do it all in one day in Tarifa and the last KOTA was also on 1 day.
But BAKL is new and they are learning, and despite all that they did a wonderfull job !!!

The last day with the semi and final was awesome with a great level of riding. Janek truly delivered and Giel probably felt the pressure.

For the next event in France, maybe your co-host could travel from the UK to the event and be live on the spot ?

Keep going, you both made this event very lively and having the live Chat was great !!!!

great event for sure.

Happy our sport has a big air tour now. Being getting on the nerves of GKA for years...

Commentary plus chat is a great and fun tool. Keep it up !

Adrian/Mike: is BAKL allowed to announce an official world champion? From my understanding ISAF will prohibit it for any other tour/event than theirs (which is big BS).
