It's Hot at the Top

Canada PKRA WinnerLangeree, who had his eyes only on the championship seat, rode with much more power and height in all his moves. However, he was defeated in the final round by no less than PKRA world champion Aaron Hadlow (Flexifoil, GBR) who only needed one final run to win the event. An action-packed final round finished-off the doubles with a total of 15 moves from Langeree and 18 moves from Hadlow.
Both riders were evenly matched but Hadlow came on top with greater technical difficulty score and switch variation, landing a regular and switch KGB/slim/hasselhoff/mobe, plus an s-bend to blind air pass, blind judge with aerial handle pass, shifty-3, mobe to wrapped, front mobe to blind, non-inverted slim 720 and a double front to blind. Langeree had his own switch move variation of back to blind air pass, hasselhoff plus a blind judge 3, s-bend to blind air pass, mobe to wrapped, 313, double s-bend, front mobe and slim.
Aaron has called it the 'Heat of the Year'
Leader BoardThe PKRA website (www.kiteworldtour.com )shows Kevin as leading currently, but under some complicated count back system, we think it could be Aaron. Bring on Brazil and Chile
