PKRA News:

Light winds in Leucate and 2013 Rankings


For the fifth day of the PKRA France, the wind stayed light at the Mondial du Vent. Riders took full advantage of the warm weather to go for SUP sessions or take a cruise down to the cable park. The town of Leucate is being a great host providing activities for visitors and competitors to enjoy the conditions and event site. Many riders also spent time talking with Dave on the live stream and making time for interviews with national and international press.

At the beginning of the season the ranking of the riders is based on two factors; the results from the current year and the past year. This means that if a rider has done well over the first two events but has a poor ranking from the year before, the rankings will not be as high, however it also works the other way if a rider did well the year before and had a bad first event his ranking might still be good. Ranking is crucial because the top eight men and four women are preceded into the main event and get a bye in the first round.

In 2013 the level of the top 40 riders has been extremely competitive and the qualifiers to make it into the main PKRA event have become tougher. Our next stop on tour is in Marsala, Italy and the top eight men and women have already been chosen. The rest of the riders unless they are part of the two lucky wildcards given to the local organizers will have to go through the qualifiers.
