Soma Bay: a Course Racing speedway

The 2014 African Continental Course Racing Championships have kicked off at Soma Bay, in Egypt.

The world's best fastest kiteboarders will participate in epic races for five days. An additional competition for the TwinTip Racing Class will be held between 27th-28th June.

Florian Gruber returns to defend his 2014 campaign. He is the man to beat in the waters of the Red Sea.

"In 2013, I managed to finish the African Championships as the runner-up. Now I am first in the world ranking and have a world champion title to defend. At the African Championships, I am not the hunter but the hunted," says the German rider.

"All racers want to defeat me and have prepared immensely for the race. My toughest competition is last year's fourth rank Riccardo Leccese from Colombia. I am gonna give my best!"
