Snow kite race Red Bull Ragnarok in Norway 100km

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

There is an amazing snowkite race held annually in Norway that had 350 participants in 2016.  People came from 30 countries.  Not that many manage to complete the race because five laps of the full course (10-20km) is required.  The race takes hours, not minutes.

 

The four winners (men/women, ski/snowboard) were from Germany, UK, and Canada.

Found a couple of other videos that make it more obvious how the race works.  Everyone has to go thru 5 gates along the course, which are about 5m wide (~16 ft).  Can result in a traffic jam at times.

2015, one of the top 20 for the first lap on the second day ever snowkiting, ended up finishing four laps in 4 hours
