The closing day of the PKRA France Mondial du Vent came to an end on another calm day. After three days on intense competition with 61 riders from over twenty countries, it was time to give the prizes and awards to the winners. Gisela Pulido and Alex Pastor were crowned Mondial du Vent champions. Pauline Valesa and George Dufty were given the rookie of the event awards. This competition had some of the strongest winds that we have seen in the history of the PKRA and the riders made it look easy.

This competition was marked by a three characteristics: it had one the biggest fleets of freestyler riders with an incredible amount of talent, the return of Aaron Hadlow to the pkra after a 3 year break and some incredible winds.

The womens ladder was full of new talent like Pauline Valesa the rookie of the event and Annabel Van Westerop who made a great run in the double elimination to get to her best finish ever on the PKRA in 4th. The top three had a great battle and it was Gisela Pulido who defeated Kajiya and Winkowska to win her first event of the year and end the four event winning streak of Karolina.

The mens side was reshuffled by the return of Aaron Hadlow, who in the second round eliminated the World Champion Youri Zoon and went on to finish 3rd. Marc Jacobs and Alex pastor took the top two spots like in Dakhla and are in a great position at the start of the season.

The next stop of the season is in Mexico for the start of the PKRA Slalom season and Freestyle exhibition by some top riders like Alex Pastor and Kevin Langeree. The next freestyle event will be in Marsala, Italy on the Island of Sicily. The warm lagoons and strong thermals will be a perfect spot for the 3rd stop of the year.
