If you are en experienced snowkiter, we´ll coach you in the direction that will give you the advantage you are looking for in the race.
GUIDED TOURS AROUND PREVIOUS RAGNAROK TRACKS
Ragnarok has taken place 4 times, and the track is never exactly the same. Sometimes some of the route is similar, sometimes it´s at a completely different place on the plateau. We have participated at all of them, and we know these mountain plains very well. Natural obstacles are a part of this race – but don´t worry; there are ways around jumping off cliffs. But if you´d like to fly out – we´ll teach you how.
TIPS AND TRICKS FOR YOUR RIDING AND THE RACE
Sharing a starting line with 300 kiters is a one in a lifetime experience for many, and it can be a bit intimidating. We´ll help you make a plan for your race, even if you´re aiming to just make one lap, finish the race or is aiming for a top position. For many, the mental challenge of finishing, especially in low wind conditions or in really tough weather, are just as tough if not tougher, for many. This race is a fun event, and we´ve got some great tips to share with you to keep a positive vibe throughout the race. When the going gets thought – we´ll make sure the snowflakes keeps going!
Red Bull Ragnarok photographer, and the number one snowkite capturer in Norway, Håkon Mæland at MLand Pictures, will follow us during the days on the mountain.
