Day Five at the Pringles Kitesurf World Cup

Pringles Kitesurf World Cup Day Five

 

Day five in Fehmarn, Germany, started with a bang. After another early 7am skipper’s meeting, the much anticipated Men’s Freestyle Main Event finally got underway and the conditions were a slight improvement on day four with around 15 knots of wind that was less offshore.

In the first heat of round one Adeuri Corniel from the Dominican Republic put on a strong display, landing a nice Backside 317 scoring 7.87 points. Former World Champion Youri Zoon from the Netherlands put on an outstanding performance, hoping to make up for his errors in the previous event in Cabarete where he was knocked out of the competition in round one. His efforts were well rewarded with several high scores including the highest scoring trick of the day, a nice Frontside 317 which earned him 8.37 points. It was Zoon and Corniel who gained 1st and 2nd place and will be passing directly through to round three. Passing through to the second round will be Set Teixera from Brasil and Paul Serin from France, who both battled hard to remain in the top four and therefore gain a second chance in the next round.

 

 

The second heat of round one was unfortunately cancelled due to the deteriorating conditions and, with the wind dropping below the required strength needed to run the freestyle competition, the freestyle riders were released for the day.

 

 

The final day of foil racing saw the riders fighting to gain headway with the light wind conditions. Four races took place over a two hour period, with some mixed results compared to previous days. The first race was won by German rider Benni Boelli, the second by the consistent rider Florian Gruber, the third once again by Boelli, and the fourth race was won by young Russian racer Dennis Taradin. After an anxious wait, and a total of eight races, the final results were posted with Florian Gruber once again reigning victorious at this event in Fehmarn, Germany.

 

The final foil results stand as follows:

1st: Florian Gruber
2nd: Adriaan Geislinger
3rd: Benni Boelli
4th: Oliver Hansen
5th: Jannis Maus
6th: Peter Mueller
7th: James Johnson
8th: Reinhold Gehrer
9th: Denis Taradin
10th: Elias Oauhmid
