Gisela Pulido, Spain
Karolina Winkowska, Poland
Bruna Kajiya, Brazil
Alex Pastor, Spain
Marc Jacobs, New Zealand
Aaron Hadlow, UK
The closing day of Mondial du Vent found Gisela Pulido and Alex Pastor at the top of the podium in the PKRA freestyle competitions this week in France. After three days of intense competition with 61 riders from over twenty countries, the PKRA’s second tour stop of 2013 was marked by some of the strongest winds in its history, along with one the biggest fleets of freestyler riders ever.
The women’s ladder was full of new talent, including Annabel Van Westerop with a strong 4th place finish, her best ever on tour. Gisela Pulido’s performance earned her the freestyle title, putting an end to the four-event winning streak of Karolina Winkowska.
The mens side was reshuffled by the return of Aaron Hadlow, who in the second round eliminated World Champion Youri Zoon and went on to finish 3rd. Marc Jacobs finished 2nd and Alex Pastor took number 1; a repeat performance of Dakhla rankings.
Next up is Mexico, where the tour will start its slalom season, followed by a freestyle event in Marsala, Italy. Visit the Pro Kite Tour (PKRA) website for the latest contest news and schedule information.
