Looks like things are building for a super grand finale next week as the Gard Kitesurf World Cup 2007 once again went into a wind delay for the second straight day as the wind provided no chance of launching any event.
Overall nice weather conditions prevailed with a temperature of 16 degrees Celsius throughout day two but with the wind way below the PKRA standards. Most of the riders worked on their laptops, watched movies in the cozy riders' lounge while others managed to play foosball. Several women riders read magazines or books while the rest took the opportunity to simply sleep or relax and gather up some strength in anticipation for the upcoming games
Tomorrow's mandatory riders' meeting starts at 08:30 am with a first possible start at 09:00am for the freestyle men's elimination event with the wind forecast looking good and everyone wanting to get a jump on the conditions. The wind is expected to average 17 knots, mostly side off-shore from the northeast. With two days of wind delay already, there is much to expect from the competitors, especially with the championship trophy for course racing at
stake along with over US$57,000 in prize money.
The live, up-to-the-minute results for the freestyle competition are posted at www.extremeelements.com with commentaries and photos for the day's events.
