300 kiters from 28 countries were gathered on the icy mountain plains of Hardangervidda in Norway, to compete in the world´s biggest and toughest snowkite competition, Red Bull Ragnarok.
In the Snowboard girl class, the first 4 girls were Cabrinha riders, and in the Women Over All / Women Ski Camilia Ringvold managed to secure 2nd place just minutes after the winner. According to Camilia “Red Bull Ragnarok should be on all kiters bucket list.”
Ever since Red Bull Ragnarok was first arranged back in 2010, its popularity has been growing. Two thirds of the starting lineup were international kiters, with participants traveling from countries such as Greece, South Africa, Croatia and Brazil, trading board shorts with windproof clothes. For some it was their fist time kiting on snow. While some had been training long and hard to go all in, others, like three guys representing The Dominican Republic, said they were born ready.
