Brasil Kite Tour 2010 - Cumbuco


Today just finished the first stop of the Brazilian Championship. The event, sponsored by Volkswagen, was held in Cumbuco in a really nice spot betwen Cumbuco town and Cauipe Lagoon. It was a complete succeed as all the disciplines could be finished and the organisation, an example to be followed. I wish in Spain the events were half the one of this one.
For three days, the best riders from all the country and also a few foreigners competed to get the title. I'm very happy with my 2nd place in Course Racing, after the Brasilian champion Nayara Licariao, also one of the top 3 riders in the world championship ranking. A total of 7 races were completed, with 2 descards. I couldn't finish the last 2 due to a massive crash in the starting line at the end of the day. Fortunately, my three second places, one 1st and one 3rd, gave me a 2nd place in the overall ranking.
I also took part in Waves riding and I'm happy with my 4th place because it was a very close heat, and even I didn't win, I was satisfied with my performance.
So tomorrow I'll go back to Taiba to keep training. Next weekend is the Super Kite International competition also in Cumbuco. I hope to get as good results as in this competition!
