PKRA Day 3 Course racers battle it out

26 March 2011 | 6:54 pm

Warm blue, sunny skies lit up the beautiful beach of Playa del Carmen on the third day of PKRA competition in Mexico. The wind ranged between 8-13 knots so the riders had to use 14-16m kites.

It was yet another spectacular day for John Heineken (Ozone, USA) finishing overall in first place. His outstanding knowledge of the game and racing strategies definitively play a key factor in his overall successful performances. French rider Olivier Dansin (North, FRA) had a fantastic 2nd place finish in the final race of the day speeding past Julien Kerneur (Takoon, FRA) in the final inches before the finish line. Dansin has been putting the pressure on Heineken as these two competitors fight for the number one position.

In the women’s division, Caroline Adrien (Cabrinha, FRA) remains in the overall number one position followed by Melissa Gil (Cabrinha, USA) in second while Nuria Goma (Liquid Force, ESP) follows closely in third.
