Team Bridge were on the invite list to represent the Kite team in Lake Silvaplana where kites would battle with the best Windsurfers and foiling Moth sailors for Speed, Slalom and Course Racing. Olly, Dirk Hanel (north kiteboarding Production manager) and Simoni Vanucci (ITY) and myself formed the kite surf team. We found ourselves up against a way more competetive windsurf team including Bjorn Dunkerbeck and top Swiss & French Moth sailors. We dominated the course racing, came 2nd to the windsurfers in the slalom discipline and won the speed. Crashes, near death experiences but some of the most exciting racing was had and for the 2nd year running the kitesurf team won the Best of 3!
The event would not be the same without the Engadin Marathon which is a course sailed 4 x the distance of Lake Silvaplana with over 140 entries we all race together. For the 2nd year, Olly won the Marathon , just 6 seconds ahead of Italian kiter Simonni Vanucci and Phillip in his Moth a minute behind in 3rd.
