The Racing Month
This past month has been super intense for our riders, filled with races and a lot of success!
DÉFI KITE 2017
Starting with the DÉFI KITE, an event gathering 253 kiteboarders on boards of all kind in Gruissan, South of France.
Our riders Axel MAZELLA, Titouan GALEA, Alexis MOUNARD were competiting with their FURTIVE while their first competitor Nicolas PARLIER had a ram air kite. Axel and Nico were both roughly going at the same speed throughout the 5 races, even if they had completely different kites.
Axel finishes 2nd, Titouan 4th, Alexis 5th after 140 kms in a strong and gusty tramontana.
4 out of the top 10 riders were competiting with our FURTIVE !
Many riders were competing on F-ONE LONG DISTANCE GUNS, showing the rest of the competitors the excellent speed abilities of this board!
HYDROFOIL PRO TOUR 2017
It was only a few days later that the F-ONE Foil boys were back in the water.
For the second stop of the HYDROFOIL PRO TOUR, in Villeneuve-Les-Maguelones close to Montpellier in the South of France.
Axel MAZELLA and Titouan GALEA have welcomed their American fellows Riley GIBBS and Joey PASQUALI to their training spot!
The four of them were extremely motivated for this competition.
It there again was intense with some tight races between the boys. This gathering was also the perfect occasion for them to try the new DIABLO V3 (coming out soon) in a competition.
Gold Race ranking:

# 6 - Titouan
# 7 - Riley
# 8 - Joey
The boys have managed a 100% F-ONE U21 podium with:

b]ENGIE KITE TOUR 2017[/b]
The unstoppable Axel MAZELLA was again on his foilboard last weekend for the first step of the French ENGIE Speedcrossing KITE Tour where he finishes 1st! Alexis MOUNARD is right behind him at the second place!
Unfortunately, Titouan GALEA had a back injury in Santander during the World Sailing Series Final.
We are wishing him a speedy recovery!
