FINALS | Lords of Tram GKA Big Air Kite Wod Cup France 2023 – Results

The Lords of Tram GKA Big-Air Kite World Cup France has concluded with a phenomenal display of big air kiting, thanks to the strong Tramontana wind. Undoubtedly, this event was the highlight of the kite world this year.

Spain’s Liam Whaley used his competition experience to the full to take the top prize in the final on the second drama-packed day of the Lords of Tram GKA Big Air World Cup at Barcarès in southern France.

Reigning Bir Air World Champion Mikaili Sol saw off a strong challenge from France’s Angely Bouillot in the women’s final. Sol’s composure helped her work through the gears to rack up the scores she needed to take the win.

Both riders are keen to cement their pole positions in the race for the Qatar Airway GKA Big Air World Championship crowns at the next tour stop in Tarifa, Spain, in May, and were delighted with their victories.

“It feels so good,” said Whaley. “I’ve had such a journey and I’ve had a challenging last year. I was a bit burned out after so many years competing. I’ve not been training as much as normal. I came into this event with no expectations and just tried to have fun. It worked out. I’m super-stoked.”
Eighteen-year-old Mika Sol, a five-time GKA freestyle world champion, was equally pleased, especially as the conditions in the final were challenging. “I’d like it to have been a little windier,” she said. “Yesterday the conditions were insane. So I’m super-stoked with the win and want to thank everyone.”

But the thrill is far from over! The next Big Air event is just around the corner, set to take place in Tarifa, Spain 🇪🇸 from May 26th to June 16th, 2023. It promises to be just as exhilarating, and we cannot wait to witness it.
