In the preliminary results posted by Race Commitee it was Adam Vance in 1st place and even in the wrap up article from the organization it was Adam Vance who had got the title.http://www.grandprixguyader.com/suivre-
The official results are now known since Toby's post (Tue May 17, 2011 10:40 am) http://www.kiteforum.com/viewtopic.php?f=159&t=2370314
Totally coherent with the ranking and the local press article published since monday 16th May (The Telegramme de Brest),
The 3rd ranked overall and most regular rider mentioned in the wrap-up is not Adam VANCE but BJ JENSEN.http://www.letelegramme.info/sports/voile/grand-prix-guyader-mondial-juniors-et-masters-maxime-nocher-ca-promet-16-05-2011-1303004.php?xtmc=guyader&xtcr=2

Guyader Grand Prix / World Youths and Masters. A very promising Maxime NOCHER !
May 16, 2011
Untouchable in the Youths, the Mediterranean Maxime Nocher was crowned world champion, yesterday in Douarnenez. The Dane Bjorn Rune Jensen and the British Steph Bridge were crowned in the Masters.
For the last day, the Grand Prix Guyader has offered a nautical scene of dream. Wind for the final rounds of kitesurfing and a large sun for the stand up paddle, all of this in front of a marveled audience at the Port Rhu.
- Thirteen rounds in three days -
This world Youths and Masters championship will be remembered. Firstly because it was the first one dedicated to the below 18s and over 35s. Secondly because it has been validated beyond expectations: 13 rounds played over three days in perfect conditions (15 to 20 knots in bright sunshine). The riders had great fun in the Bay of Douarnenez. For Maxime Nocher, it was the perfect World. The Frejus rider [South of France] logically titles of Youths World Champion. Ambitious, Nocher now targets the Open World championship that will take place next month in Germany, "just after the High School final exams," he said.
- The regularity of Jensen -
In the Masters (age 35 +), the title of Men Masters World Champion returned to the Dane Bjorn Rune Jensen. Regularity will have paid.
In the overall ranking, it is Julien Kerneur (Quiberon, Brittany West of France) who won. Among women, the British Steph BRIDGE has always been on the lead: she leaves Douarnenez with the Women Masters World Title. Very international podiums on this very first world championship.
