14 January 2009 | 9:12 pm

The internationals. Day 4. The Vikings go big

The weather is pleasant here at Lautaret, big blue sky for the fourth consecutive day, cold, beautiful snow, and today the wind a little stronger. As it blew in the same direction as before, no opportunity to innovate for organizers Regis and Wareck Matthias Charton with the race director. So it is a second day of freestyle that has run with kiteurs always brought to the block. The wind now enabled them to really speak out. It was a great show of snowkiting freestyle. A welcome initiative which led the tribe of competitors, judges, spectators on the combination of the above, the new field called for creativity and instant competitors allowed thieves images continue their work in a beautiful sunset light.
Among skiers, it Kaupanger Bjorn who won the final against the old lion Fabio Ingrosso. An aesthetic taste and rich in high-voltage pace. Among snowboarders, Sigve Botnen managed to dominate terrible challengers such as Marek Zach, Romain Luppi, Remi Meum. Again sequences no dead time, with speed and precision that the dispute to a commitment.
Our Chasta, with a fracture of the metacarpal bone, could not participate, so it has enjoyed with his wife Titaua the beautiful powder that remains when the last snow date of seven days! Snowkiting is magical.
Voilà. After four days, Régis Labaune told me SKM’09 goal now was reached as we were filled with amazing footage.
But Let us keep the pace so far, there are two formats of race: the Best Line and the Best Trick and there, with little chance of weather, we’ll still spend good time here it will get fat and our Photos / video will travel around the world.
Stay tuned.
