It was a slow start to the GKA Freestyle World Cup in Leucate due to lack of conditions. With teasing moments of contestable winds coming through at times, the decision was made to relocate the event to another spot called Port Leucate. Just 20 minutes south of Le Franque, the unobstructed exposure to the wind allowed riders to make the most out of the southerly winds and right foot kickers.
The hard work and efforts from the GKA organisation paid off and the rounds got underway in nuclear winds.
The Duotone Freestyle Team proved unstoppable, with 6 riders making up the 8 finalists. Here we catch up with queen of the competition Francesca Bagnoli, runners up Mika, Claudia and Pippa, as well as Gianmaria, Val and Stefan.
