PKRA 2010: Thailand Day 4

Day three of round one of the PKRA World Tour in Hua Hin, Thailand was unfortunately called off due to there not being enough wind. This was not the case though for Day four where there was enough for the course racing events to be held.
A northerly wind direction mixed things up a bit from the usually southerly gusts, blowing at an average of ten knots for most of the day, too light for the freestyle riders, but enough for the racers.
With the maximum number of course races able to be held in one competition day being four, the racers took clear advantage of that. None more so than French rider Bruno Sroka (Cabrinha, FRA) who used his momentum to secure wins in all four races impressively. A couple riders used different strategies to attempt overtaking the racing world champion but failed. Fellow team mate Renaud Madier (Cabrinha, FRA) took second place twice in day four, followed by another French rider Julien Kerneur (Takoon, FRA) who came in third place on more than one occasion. Spanish rider Abel Lago (RRD, ESP) came in second place twice as well as a third place finish.
There were a couple protests for the first race of the day due to line entanglements with three riders on the first lap near the finish line marker. David Tyburski (Airush, USA) was disqualified due to this entanglement.
In the women's racing events Kari Schibevaag (Ozone, NOR) had been leading the races in the women's division until Kristin Boese (Best, GER) overtook her in race number five. French racer, Caroline Adrien who took two second place positions also had a good day. Even women's freestyle single eliminations winner, Gisela Pulido got in on the days racing action taking part in a single race and earning herself a very respectable second place.
