2019 Pascucci Formula Kite World Championships – Day Five

Nico Parlier and Daniela Moroz claim the 2019 Pascucci Formula Kite World tittles on Lake Garda, Italy. Check here the report. Reigning Champions Successfully Defend Crowns at Formula Kite Worlds in Italy France’s Nico Parlier and the US’s Daniela Moroz mounted successful defences of their titles in difficult conditions at the 2019 Pascucci Formula Kite World Championships played out on the waters of northern Italy’s stunning Lake Garda. For 18-year-old Moroz the crown was a remarkable fourth in succession, while Parlier could bask in the glow of three back-to-back Formula Kite world titles in the face of increasingly-stiff challenges from ever-quicker fleets stacked with talent. Moroz came into the five days of competition in a relaxed frame of mind, but was nonetheless stoked with her unbroken haul of titles against a growing women’s fleet eager to break her dominance. “I’m absolutely delighted,” said a beaming Moroz. “It was challenging and I learned a tonne. I know it’s only going to get harder from here as more girls start getting into it and begin training with more intensity. It was pretty cool racing on iconic Lake Garda for the first time, too.” Likewise, Parlier sees that kiteboarding’s inclusion in the line-up …

CHAMPIONS POISED TO RETAIN CROWNS DESPITE INTENSE PRESSURE AT KITEFOIL WORLDS The current men’s and women’s title holders, France’s Nico Parlier and the US’s Daniela Moroz, are sitting in pole position to retain their crowns after a scintillating penultimate day of hydrofoil racing at the 2019 Pascucci Formula Kite Worlds fought out in Italy. But the pair both stumbled in several races under stiff challenges from ever-faster kitefoil rivals. The slips blotted their previously-perfect records at the world championships being contested on Lago di Garda with its breath-taking mountain backcloth. In near-perfect foiling conditions, in breezes that built during the afternoon from 6kts to around 11kts, Britain’s returning Olly Bridge picked up a bullet and a second in his day’s four races to leave him second overall. It was an audacious move that landed him the vital win in his day’s final race. He gybed early on the last downwind leg and surged past Parlier and fellow countryman Connor Bainbridge as they were preoccupied battling one another for the lead. Yet Bainbridge was still able to hold the third spot overall that he …

OLYMPIC AMBITIONS UNLOCK RESOURCE BONANZA FOR KITEFOIL RACING Dreams of capturing coveted Olympic medals when kitefoil racing makes its debut at the 2024 Games in Paris has prompted nations to invest heavily in kiteboarding programmes to unearth and hone top athletes. The dynamic of kiteboard racing on display at the 2019 Pascucci KiteFoil World Championships being fought out on northern Italy’s Lago di Garda has altered dramatically since the sailing discipline won Olympics inclusion last year. Now a number of countries with strong sailing backgrounds and big Olympic ambitions have fielded large national squads, often made up of extremely young athletes who will reach their peak by the time the mixed team kitefoil relay graces Marseilles venue. But on day three of the world championships off Campione del Garda—supported by Regione Lombardia—rain and thunder showers stopped the reliable Ora thermal winds from building and prevented any racing. The results of the four races from the opening day’s qualifying series will seed the the 87 men into “gold”, “silver” and “bronze” flights for the final two days …

But the pair edged out France’s Alexia Fancelli and former world champion Maxime Nocher by just one point in a day of thrillingly close race action on northern Italy’s breath-taking Lago di Garda on the sidelines of the 2019 Pascucci Formula Kite World Championships. With all the world’s fastest kiteboarders gathered to contest the world championships—hosted by Campione Univela and supported by Regione Lombardia—most who could muster a mixed team joined the trial for which one day was set aside. The crop of former world champions teamed with their fellow countrymen added to the drama and intensity of the nail-biting format, with Russia’s Elena Kalinina and highly-ranked Denis Taradin taking the third place overall.
