  1. 2019 Red Bull Ragnarok

    World’s toughest snowkiting race fills frozen plateau with colour. Red Bull Ragnarok returns to Norway’s stunning Hardangervidda for a 10th time. 1). Participants at the start during the Red Bull Ragnarok in Hardangervidda, Norway on Saturday 6 April, 2019 Photographer Credit: Ydwer van der Heide / Red Bull Content Pool The skies above the starkly beautiful wilderness of Hardangervidda were once again filled with hundreds of kites as 250 participants from 30 different nations tackled the gruelling five-lap course. Competitors took on the challenge on either skis or snowboards, with only the very hardiest managing to overcome the changeable wind conditions to go the full distance. 2).

Participants attempt to use kite power alone to complete five laps of the course in the shortest possible time. The race format is a mass start and the kiters then have a five-hour time limit to finish the course. 3).

Speaking after the race, Kersten said: “This year's race was quite tough, because after the first round the wind died completely and we had to walk a little bit. I was in front, but I saw everyone was catching up to me and I lost a little bit. In the second lap I overtook them again, and from this point I was in the lead and I took it o the end!” 4).

She completed the course in 4h 45m. Bruce Kessler took the men’s snowboard win with a time of 3h 23m. The 19-year-old from Switzerland had previously won silver here on skis, but this was his first title. The women’s snowboard was won by Aija Ambrasa from Latvia. She came close to finishing four laps and claimed the gold ahead of Norwegians Kirsti Henriksen and Sigrid K. Gaup Aamot. 5).

I put so much time into training and coming out on top is just magical as there was a lot of pressure on me as defending champ. Jesse and Liam were on fire and went big. I had to pull everything out of the bag. I couldn't be happier!" 5).

The very first Red Bull King of the Air ran at the hallowed windsurfing spot, Ho’okipa, on the Hawaiian islands of Maui in 2000 with the event evolving into how high and far competitors could go in storm force winds. Riders like Ruben Lenten began throwing ‘mega loops’ up to 40 feet high, which saw the event move to Cape Town in 2013 where it has stayed ever since. Crowds up to 13,000 pack the shoreline to see riders hit speeds of around 30 knots, often aided by a south-easterly wind known as the ‘Cape Doctor’. Judges look at Extreme Big Air and Overall Impression with height (70%) favoured over extremity (30%) and the three best tricks of a run counted. A fourth unique score for overall impression is determined by considering technical difficulty, style, variety, execution, risk, show and innovation. by: redbullcontentpool.com
  4. 2018 Red Bull Lighthouse to Leighton

    European champion Guy Bridge breaks Red Bull Lighthouse to Leighton record 1). 2018 Red Bull Lighthouse to Leighton Fremantle, Western Australia: A convincing win by 19-year-old Guy Bridge from Devon, UK saw a new race record set at today’s Red Bull Lighthouse to Leighton kiteboard race from Rottnest Island. Within five minutes of the race start there was already a clear winner. The Current European Champion flew in front of the field from the start on his hydrofoil board and grew his lead as he crossed the Indian Ocean from Rottnest Island to Leighton Beach in Fremantle in just 18 minutes, 49 seconds. In a solid 20kn winds and under clear blue skies, Guy shaved 45 seconds off the race record set in 2016. Guy said the conditions were perfect for the 19km crossing. “I’m pretty stoked. There was no seaweed and plenty of wind, there wasn’t too much swell so it was really perfect,” Guy said. “I went a lot faster than last year, it’s pretty incredible to have managed to get the extra distance ahead in the race to beat the record,” he said. First woman across the line was Twin Tip rider Rachael Hughes, who is from New Zealand but currently living in Safety Bay in Western Australia. Rachael said she was surprised to win. “It was a great race, really fun. I wasn’t expecting to win. It’s always a toss-up which kite you’re going to race with so there is some luck involved too. The wind was pretty good the whole way across, I got in the shadow of one of the ships out there for a bit but then was ok the rest of the race.” 2). 2018 Red Bull Lighthouse to Leighton Winner of the Mens Twin Tip category was Dan Anderson from Coolbellup in WA in a time of 26 minutes 45 seconds. Rachael won the Twin Tip division, and Claire May won the open category. This year’s Marc Sprod Memorial Trophy, awarded to the fastest West Australian, was presented to Alty Frisby from Samson, Western Australia. Alty is a past winner of this award, winning it in 2016. He placed second overall with a time of 21 minutes 14 seconds. He said despite his board giving him some initial issues, he managed to catch up some time lost at the start and was stoked finishing in second. “It’s fantastic to win the Marc Sprod Trophy for a second time. I knew Marc before he died because he was part of the crew. I’m very happy. “My hydrofoil was misbehaving, sort of kicking as though I was dragging some seaweed, but there was none there. There was nothing to do but just ride through it. I was quite unstable for a lot of the time but I kept pushing, going consistent rather than trying to go too fast. I watched other people crash and kept going and pushed it towards the end because I didn’t have much to lose. “I was probably 5th or 6th til about half way, then people started dropping. Then I was 2nd, 3rd, 2nd, 3rd and about a kilometre before the end I thought oh my goodness I can do this! “The wind wasn’t as strong as it was predicted so I was very comfortable I had the right sized kite and good equipment for the day,” he said. Current National Kitefoil Champion Mani Bisschops placed third overall in a time of 21 minutes, 17 seconds. 135 local, interstate and international kiteboarders took on the open ocean race this afternoon. Winners shared more than $5000 in prizemoney. 3). Guy Bridge, Alty Frisby, Mani Bisschops Mens Overall and Mens Foil 1 Guy Bridge 18:49 2 Alty Frisby 21:14 3 Mani Bisschops 21:17 4).
