Kitekurs.no and Urge.no are excited to announce that once again we will be running the DRIVA snowkite camp vol.2 – The road to Ragnarok. The camp will take place on Haugastøl Turistsenter at Hardangervidda 27. – 30. March 2017. Same as last year, we are aiming to attract kick ass women from all over the world.
The camp is for women only, simply because we want more women to take on the tough challenge of Red Bull Ragnarok. Our goal is prepare women of all experience for a competition that for many might seem intimidating and mentally challenging.
– A lot of people sign up for the race without having a clue about what they might be facing. The conditions in the mountains can be very tough, and if you haven’t kited in similar conditions before, you are in for a treat, says DRIVA camp host Iris Straume.
The participants can look forward to four intensive days of training. There will be guided tours around previous Ragnarok tracks, coaching on how to kite in different terrain and wind conditions, and for the most courageous ones – how to jump off cliffs.
We will equip our DRIVAs with the right tools so they can feel confident crossing the starting line among 300 other competitors as well as how to handle obstacles, fast changing weather conditions, and low wind.
We might even get a “celebrity” kiter to come and coach our DRIVAs for a day. This is yet to be confirmed.
– Last year we saw how our participants reached a whole new level in their kiting because they had the right guidance and a fun environment to train in, says camp host Linda Viktoria Olofsson.
The hosts will be previous winner and extremely talented Linda Viktoria Olofsson and the gutsy kiter and yogi extraordinaire Iris Straume. We also have the best snowkite photographer Håkon Mæland to take photos during the camp, as well as the legendary kite adventurerer Camilla Ringvold as a guide.
Don’t be surprised if see any of these or some of our participants on the podium in 2017. We have done it before, and we will do it again!
