Snow kiters challenged the mountains of the Alto Sangro

Thirty Formula GPS kiteboarders battled it out on the mountains of the Alto Sangro, Italy, for the second leg of 2018 IKA Snowkite World Cup.

The first day of racing was scheduled to take place in the Fredda Valley, a rather flat area with less steep slopes where speed and distance were more rewarded than gaining height through the terrain. Some impressive performances were recorded early on, with two GPS tasks completed.
