Morocco being the first stop for the Pro Kite Tour, we were able to see a good indication of the talent and determination that each of the riders will be displaying for the rest of the season. As always, a lot of close heats with fraction of points differences.
The double elimination gives opportunity for riders in the singles to progress even further. Alex Pastor (Riding the Airush FSand Airush Razor) and Bruna Kajiya (Riding the Airush Razor and Airush FS Team prototype) started the season off riding only in boots allowing for more power and adding difficulty to their riding. Bruna had an awesome week going against the other female riders in some unexpected and harsh conditions. She was able to hold off the rest during the finals to grab 1st place! Alex was able to pull out his full arsenal of tricks but unfortunately lost by .3 points bringing him in the second place postion. This was probably one of the closest and exciting battles of the event. Asia Litwin (Riding the Airush Razor) grabbed third place overall bumping down one spot after going against her fellow countryfolk, Karolina Winkowska.
We will see our team riders competing in France next from April 7-12, 2012. For more information check out Pro Kite Tour.
