The final WKL tour stop in New Caledonia begins!

On December 14, 2016   |   By kiteworldmag.com

 

WKL final stop is about to start in New Caledonia!

 

It’s been an interesting year so far on the WKL and, while Bruna has retained her control of the podium with Hannah Whiteley consistentlyon her heels and Annabel Van Westerop and Paula Novotna closely ranked in third and fourth.

It’s been far less clean cut in the men’s division. Carlos Mario is ranked first with a reasonably healthy lead over Youri Zoon in second and Alex Pastor in third but, as this tour has shown us so far, nothing is a given in freestyle events. While Alex took first place in Fehmarn, it was Dominican rider Luis Alberto Cruz who hammered home the ficklenature of competitive freestyle when he surprised everyone by winning the first event at his home spot in Cabarete.

There’s not yet an obvious soon-to-be championamong the top four riders sowe’re sure the competition over the coming week in New Cal will be fierce with Liam Whaley sitting just outside the podium in fourth and clearly hoping to secure another podium finish after his third place result in Cabarete.
