North Press Release PKRA Austria

Postby Toby » Mon May 05, 2003 11:02 am

PKRA Event Lake Neusiedl – Rhino2 still rules!
(April 30, 2003-Podersdorf, Austria)- As hoped, the wind gradually returned through out the day, allowing for a 2pm start to the finish of the Freestyle Double Elimination. Winds were a gusty 16-22 knots, from the south. Picking up as the heats advanced made for difficult decision making for the riders, regarding their kite sizes! The dreaded wind hole on the shoreline added to the drama as the Finals neared.

Phillip ANT, building on his progressive and strong performance in 2002, won Eloy FRA- a new face on the PKRA showing lots of promise as he rose from 25th in the Singles ladder to 9th place! And, Shinn UK, our 2001 Tour Champion passed by De Jong NED.

James USA, showing marked improvement and his signature style left behind Lago ESP. In the same Heat, Herraiz ESP, demonstrating the results of his determined training, won over Phillip ANT.

In the Men’s Quarter Finals James USA took down the mighty Herraiz ESP. Continuing to the Men’s Semi Finals James USA, continued on to take down Koch USA, though Koch demonstrated much grace and flow.

In the Women’s Finals, it was the pervasive Cindy Mosey NZL who prevailed over Claire Bunton UK. The Men’s Finals was energy in motion, as James USA and his comrade Vari ARG exchanged tricks, it was Martin Vari ARG, who finished 1st Place in the Men’s Freestyle competition!

Didn't we hear that Martin Vari borrowed Jaime's Rhino2 to win. :D

Yep, I know we did :P

Martin had some kite problem, so his bud came to the rescue. :greenlaugh:
