Results of the II stop in Cup of Russia in snowkiting . «Moscow Sea»

Competitions were held on the ice of the reservoir Ivankovskoye Konakovo in Tver region 24 to 27 January 2014. At the competition in Konakovo came anticyclone .
For the first time in all winter started strong frosts (up to -25 degrees).
Competitions were in jeopardy when on the morning of the competition frozen diesel fuel in the car used to bring equipment for a good half of the foreign participants . Fortunately, the problem was solved quickly and everyone just got to starts.
Competition had to begin with a minute of silence in memory of fellow man . Tragically, two weeks before the start, in the waters of the reservoir Ivankovskoye, fell through the ice and died kiter.

It was an unusual wind during the competition: in the land was nearly calm, and at a distance of 30 meters from the surface of the barrel , sometimes 4 -7m / s .

Race distance consisted of three laps from the finish line. The wind conditions allowed even novice athletes to pass the distance on the kite measuring 14 square meters in the first two races.
It was the time to give another, the fifth race, by the evening of the first day, but the wind turned sour and just a few minutes before the start refereeing decided to close the racing day .
The morning was calm in the second day of racing in, and the wind for lunch blew from the west. We had to give the start directly from hotel Konakovo River Club. The «bubbles» of calm appeared the distance, so only skiers managed to pass the race.
That was the reason for the cancellation of the fifth race for snowboarders.
The racing was uncompromising struggle. Dozens of athletes gathered on a small piece of ice.
Distance consisted of three circles and the straight ridge to the end.
Sunny weather added positive emotions to all fans of the Russian winter. For example, the speed of movement in snowboarding allowed to communicate on the move. In motion, it was possible to discuss how many laps still left, and how are things an athlete. All athletes had a good mood.
In the list of participants of the festival there are legendary names: world champions Tatiana Sysoeva (Chelyabinsk) , Anastasia Emets (Moscow), defending champion Russia Igor Danilov (Moscow) and many other names.
Geography competition is vast: from Tallinn to Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk!
According to the owner of the Cup of Russia in 2014 in the class of “Course-Race Snowboard” Egor Larionov ( Moscow, Yacht Club «Patriot» , team Synergy)
“ — The competition was held at a very high level! Good organization and good participation. Almost all strong athletes were of those who are now chasing in Russia. Thanks to the organizers for the program before the races and after the races - hot tea and coffee — greatly improves mood! I’d add that it was a very interesting to race with such strong athletes. Many thanks to refereeing . At competitions the best judges of those I ‘ve seen in three years of participation in snowkiting competitions was working. I thank my coach Danilov Igor for assistance in selecting the equipment, organization of training, support during the competition. Common efforts guided to achieve a good result.”
Russian Cup winner in 2014 in the class of «Course Race Skis » Dmitry Nikulichev ( Petrozavodsk, team RZD ) said about the competitions :
“— I want to stay still , and continue ! Holiday atmosphere. The organizers tried to 1,000 percent . Everything was provided. All held at a high level.”
At night riders passed the test in the «Slalom» discipline with headlights Petzl.
Electronic musician from St. Petersburg DJ Afro made his set for the participants and guests of the competition on the first day.
At the second day — Nizhniy Novgorod group “Snakes”made their show.
