With the KiteTracker RideUp Challenges, we introduced a nice way to compete outside of just distance & speed contests in a new way and loved by every backcountry snowkiter! Not every challenge has been available from the beginning of Winter 2014, but this year everything is ready for even more competitors, so go ahead and beat the results of the here announced winners…!!
(Note: the PicBlanc and TripleS Challenge have not been ranked due to missing competitors or tracks not complying with our challenge-rules)
Finally it’s here – our Final Ranking of the KiteTracker XC-Contest 2014! This year with our new Rider Judges Rider System! The riders with the Top 10 Tracks had the chance to rate each other track with a rating from 1-10 to generate the final ranking with the Ultimate XC-Contest Champion.
The system worked well and we got a interesting final ranking table with Jozone (Johann Civel) on first place with his impressive Track! Respect and congratulations Johann!!

It has been a very interesting year for KiteTracker and all users! This weekend, the KiteTracker Contest 2014 are now over and the final results are here! As it is clearly visible on all the rankings, there was an ongoing challenge between the top riders – just exactly what we want with KiteTracker – to get everyone to compete against competitors from around the world…!
The Rankings are closed but according to the Contest Rules the Final Results will be done with a “Rider judges Rider” system, so the best riders will judge the others to get the big winner! These results will be finalized during the next week and announced next weekend!
With his incredible Speed-Session on the glassy Icelake in Finland, Kai Schroder made his way to the top of the Snowkiting Speed Ranking! Big respect Kai for the 117 km/h and congratulations!!

Landboarding Speed Contest
Similar to last year, Pascal Lohmann (kitepascal) recorded some serious speed sessions on his landboard and made it again to the leader position! More than 85km/h on a landboard, thats faster than most Snowkiter would dare to go on their skis, respect!
Congrats and thumbs up for kitepascal with 87km/h on his landboard !!

Landboarding Distance Contest
Looks like the landboarding distance contest was like last year a decision made in the last seconds – the leader gurke (Felix) took the chance and attempted his run during the last 2 days of the KiteTracker contest. And was successful with his mission and went for more than 200km!
Congratulations gurke to your 202km on the landboard!

Kitesurfing Distance Contest
Probably the most impressive session has been uploaded by drkitesurf from the San Francisco area. With his foilboard, he we went for the longest kitesurfing track ever uploaded on KiteTracker and even the longest track ever done – so it’s a new world record for the longest distance in Kitesurfing (according to the Guinness Book of World Records).
So biiig and massive respect for this huge distance winner – session!! Absolutely incredible!!
KiteTracker congratulates for this epic session and effort of DrKitesurf !!!
