XC-Contest Final Ranking 2016

Written at 15:20 by kitetracker.com

XC_new

The final KiteTracker XC-Contest Ranking of 2016! Congratulations to all final contestants and their awesome tracks!
There have been many interesting and long tracks – and like the XC-Formula has been designed, not every track in the high mountains.
So the system worked and everybody had a chance to compete, no matter while kiting in flat areas or tracking so many gained altitude meters in the mountains.

In the end – it’s being decided by the riders between each other, to which rider the victory belongs! Each rider of the top 10 XC-tracks can vote for every other track.
Points from 0-10 can be voted for every track and the average of all the votes will be multiplied with the original XC-Points – > this new number will define the final ranking!

Jozone – or let’s say Johann Civel ;) did it!! With his awesom RideUp Session, he did a good base for his original XC-Points and the other riders judged him to an average of 8.0 points – together with these two numbers, he has a good margin to the 2nd place! Congratulations! 500 Euros for you as cash prize Johann Civel ;) !!!

All Sessions here (Numbers in Brackets: initial XC-Points, Rider-Judge-Average-Points, Final Points):
1. Johann Civel (238 x 8.0 = 1904) : http://www.kitetracker.com/gps/tracking?r=jozone_210
2. Simone Borgi (208 x 7.4 = 1539): http://www.kitetracker.com/gps/tracking?r=simoneborgi_126

Snowkite Speed Contest Winner 2016

Written at 20:58 by kitetracker.com

The area around Haugastol in Norway has been THE place for so many showdowns, battles, movies, Events – and not just because of no reason…
Perfect conditions for almost any competition – and Jonas took this chance to bring home the Snowkite speed contest – it was hard and took a long time in a session with many attempts to gain for maximum speed.
Whopping 7 hours and just below 150km took him with his Ozone R1 V2 in good conditions to get this years record of 107km/h! Go on Jonas!!!

Congratulations Jonas to the sick speed of 107km/h!

KiteTracker Contest Winner 2015: Snowkiting Speed

Written at 20:24 by kitetracker.com

Snowkite Speed Contest
The Hardangervidda Plateau is the good known and famous spot of epic movies like “Snowkitefilm” and the Red Bull Ragnarok contest and this year, Felix took this unlimited seeming area as his base for the speed record.
Carrying different GPS devices to compare the results, he was also smart enough to carry his smartphone with the KiteTracker App. And did an excellent job with the amazing 121km/h!!
KiteTracker doesn’t just record the fastest GPS speed – it will sort out the wrong GPS infos (false speed computations) and will count only the most accurate signals and speed over a period of 5 seconds.

Congratulations Felix to your 121km/h in Norway!
Felix’s speed track here: http://www.kitetracker.com/gps/tracking?r=gurke_1e
