Varanger Arctic Kiting Enduro 2010

Varanger Arctic Kiting Enduro, Norway, 15th - 18th April 2010
Sebastien Nestolat is a snowkiting instructor for FlyMountains Snowkite in France. Having recently taken part in the Varanger Arctic Kiting Enduro at the far end of Norway, next to the North Cape, he and Ivan Guidobaldi (Team Evergreen) managed to keep track of their exploits in an interesting and compelling blog that took them right from the early stages of training in the highlands of Härjadalen to the finish line at Vadso.

VAKE 2010 was the longest and toughest snowkite race in the world. Between 200 and 300km of race on the Varanger plateau. The Evergreen Team was one of 15 teams that were competing, with two kiters allowed in each team. They would all have to carry their own equipment during the 3-4 days of kiting with several check points mandatory to be passed through on the way to the finish line.
The Evergreen Team eventually managed a hugely respectable 5th place finish at the end of the event, but this was about much more than race positions. It was about braving the elements, pushing through the pain barrier and working together as a team. In that sense everyone was a winner.
