DAY 6 Palmolive Kitesurf World Cup 2010

Abel Lago still fighting on German Racing fields

At 3:00pm, the red flag went up marking the start of the racing
discipline. Racers rushed out on the water for the 8th as well as 9th
race of the competition. French racer Bruno Sroka (Cabrinha, FRA)
finished first in both races today. Julien Kerneur (Takoon, FRA)
placed second in the first race of the day while Spanish rider Abel
Lago (RRD, ESP) takes third. In the second and final race of the day,
Bruno Sroka (Cabrinha, FRA) finished yet again in first place followed
by Olivier Dansin (North, FRA) in second and Julien Kerneur (Takoon,
FRA) in third.

It was a challenging day for the women racers due to the stronger wind
conditions. Katja Roose (Airush, NED) injured her foot during the
race. The ambulance drove on the beach to care for her minor injury.
In a short interview with Norwegian rider, Kari Schibevaag (Ozone,
NOR) she mentioned that she only had a light wind board amongst her
material and due to her extremely petite size, it was impossible for
her to finish the race. Steph Bridge (North, GBR) finished in first
place in both races today followed by Caroline Adrien (Cabrinha, FRA)
who finished second in both races and German rider Kristin Boese
(Best, GER) who finished third on both races.

Tomorrow's mandatory skippers meeting is scheduled for 10:00am
