After two weeks of training in Tarifa it was time to head to Fuerteventura for the 5th PKRA world cup of the season. I had never been there before but I heard about the classic very strong and gusty wind, so at least Tarifa was a good preparation with the strong offshore Levante.
This event there was a second discipline; slalom racing. I had never done it before but decided to enter for fun and see if I was any good. After the first days of slalom I was in second place and on the last day in the very last two races I managed to overtake Bibiana and ended up first with only a very small difference. It was a very nice experience and I am definitely going to do more slalom when I have the chance.
But of course for me it’s all about freestyle. I was very happy to be 3rd after the single elimination. On the last day we had the lasts heats of the double elimination and again I had to defend my 3rd place against Bruna Kajiya from Brazil. I was very nervous because I really didn’t want to loose my podium place, so I was really happy when I heard that I won that heat. The next heat was against Gisela Pulido who was riding really strong. Unfortunately I couldn’t manage to land all my tricks while she was landing really powered and technical moves, which also made here win the event over Karolina Winkowska.
I am super stoked with my second podium place in freestyle. After the competition I went home and after only a day I went straight to Germany to train for the next world cup that starts in only 3 days.
