The kitebuggy's European Championship 2016 occured on the last august 22-26th, on the beach of La Franqui.
On the 2nd and 3rd of July the Eurocup took place on the dutch island of Texel. Our Zebra pilot Vincent started on his Zebras and scored good results.
On Sunday there was less wind and Vincent switched to LIBRE Radical III. He managed to finish 2nd. The wind picked up again a little and Vincent switched to Radical III 11m proto and finished 2nd.
Overall Vincent finished the Buggy Cup on the 2nd place and made clear that the new Radical III has great potential!
On the 1st to 3rd July the first tour stop of the German KLB tour took place in Schillig.
LIBRE team rider Kolja Löwen started the first races with the LIBRE Revolt Ultra 11m. The wind was gusty and brought tricky situations and Kolja had some troubles on the first day. On Sunday it was sunny but still the conditions were not perfect due to gusty winds. Kolja finished on the 4th place overall.
LIBRE team rider Guntram participated in the 8 hour long distance race right on the French top buggy spot Les Hemmes. Guntram started with LIBRE Radical III in 13m and 15m. Due to less wind in the last phase of the race, the French locals managed to took the lead. Guntram was happy on the 2nd place overall and had great chances to test the Radical III in different conditions. He was very happy with the performance of the kite.
The second tour stop took place at Lago Bianco, Bernina from 2nd to 3rd of January.
The races of the first day had to be cancelled due to no wind. The second day races were very exciting and the pilots fighted hard. In the end Kolja came in 3rd on Zebra Revolt 16 m². Bernd had a very good day on his Radical 2, 11m² and was able to finish 2nd. Jörg, as well with Radical 2, 11m² ranked 4th.
Congratulations to our successful team riders!
