GKA Distance Battle Finally Begins – Tuesday 29th 8pm CET

After Russian meddling with the online voting and general Covid-19 rubbishness plaguing the GKA Distance Battle earlier this season, finally the first heat of the Men’s Strapless Freestyle will begin tonight (Tuesday 29th). You can watch and keep up with all the action on the GKA Live Event Page here

Basically, over the summer, selected riders had a window to shoot their tricks in a timed, continuous video and submit them to the GKA. Those tricks will now go into a virtual heat against other competitors. Sounds complicated… but we’re hoping it’s going to be good to watch, making up for the absence of GKA Kite World Tour competition this year. 

The livestream went live at 8pmCET, here it is. Scroll down for more scheduling updates:
