World Tour heading to Mexico

Feb 10, 2011

Author: PKRA

Following its success in 2008, Mexico is back on the 2011 PKRA World  Tour Calendar as the second official stop of the 2011 PKRA World Tour  Season which will be held from March 22nd through March 27th, 2011! The  best-seeded racers in the world will have the chance to compete in  Riviera Maya Mexico’s warm turquoise waters. This is an epic  kiteboarding destination famous for its consistent winter winds ranging  anywhere from 10 to 25 knots, hot, sunny days, endless parties and 100%  Mexican hospitality. Playa del Carmen is a fun and exciting venue with  thousands of spectators who travel from all around the world to catch a  glimpse of all the world-class professional kiteboarding athletes in  action. The town of Playa del Carmen is known as the heart of the world  famous “Riviera Maya” with its many kilometers of powdery white sandy  beaches, and crystal clear Caribbean water.

As an added attraction a Freestyle Pro Competition will be held with a  $10,000 USD Prize Purse.  2 Top ranked PKRA riders will be invited, all  expenses paid. 3 wildcards will be awarded by the organizer to  outstanding Mexican riders. 7 spots left will be granted to the top 7  riders from the trials.

Distribution of $10,000 USD will take place as indicated below.

The Freestyle Pro will be judged taking into consideration both old  school and new school tricks, rewarding the rider that can perform both  tricks in the most outstanding style and fashion. Basic new school and  old school tricks will be expected but not requited. The Freestyle Pro  will be run in a Round Robin elimination format described below with 12  participating male riders:

The round robin freestyle elimination format means the 12 riders will  be divided into two groups of 6 riders. The 6 riders in each group will  compete in men to men heats 5 times. Each heat will be against a  different rider of the group. Two judges will be scoring the heats, each  giving a winner or a looser. Therefore each rider will get 2 points for  winning each heat (both judges giving it to the winner), 1 point for  tying (each judge giving the heat to different riders), and 0 points for  loosing.



The two riders from each group with the highest scores will advance into a knockout semifinal round, and then into the finals.
