With the GKA moving to Brazil for the next round of competition, the Ocean Rodeo international team will be aiming to put on another great performance, having pulled out the stops at the recent event in Dakhla.
Reece Myerscough (above) managed to blow down the door in the men’s single eliminations, knocking out Airton Cozzolino in the quarters and then Pedro Matos in the semis, going on to a nail-biting finale against Mitu Monteiro, who beat Reece by just over 2.5 points. As the double eliminations progressed, Reece once against came up against Airton who pipped him to the win by just half a point, putting Reece into a 3rd place podium finish in Dakhla.
Remaining at the top of the Women’s Kite-Surf division is Carla Herrera Oria (below), who comes out of the event with a sizeable lead, and is now set to be top of the Championship podium following Brazil. Well done Carla!
Freestyler Juan Rodriguez has had an amazing debut year on tour. This season he has managed to attend every single stop, ride better on each occasion, and is currently sitting in 12th in the general rankings. With one final event to go in Brazil, anything can happen! Juan has proved that he is a very versatile rider adapting well to the conditions at all the events, whether 15 knots or 30 knots, Juan goes all in!
Another team rider enjoying his rookie year on tour is Graham Harney who has been having a great time vlogging his experience along the way. He currently sits in 15th position and will be looking to do his best in Brazil to advance even higher.
