The PKRA is back in Pingtan, China for what is sure to be another banner event. This year the event features three disciplines including Freestyle, Slalom, and a Twin- tip Course Race. Following the phenomenal conditions that were had here last year, this second-time event has been widely anticipated by many of the competitors, not only for the great and reliable conditions, but also because of the intense competition set to unfold as the race for the freestyle world titles is coming down to the last two events. This event marks the final stop of the slalom season where the slalom world champions will be decided. With a hotly competitive field of both men and women present and hungry for the win, this is going to be a week to remember.
Registration officially opened today for all disciplines and will remain open for slalom and freestyle for another day. Tomorrow, an opening ceremony will celebrate and officially kick off the event at 9:30 am. The competition will get underway with the first possible start of the twin-tip race at 11 am. The conditions forecast for the week look to be lighter slalom wind early on in the holding period, then building to strong freestyle conditions starting on Monday. As always, stay posted to the PKRA Facebook and Twitter feeds for all the latest results and news from the event.
