IKA-2020: champion winter in Tolyatti
The world of snowkiting was shocked by the news: the third stage of the IKA-2020 Snowkiting World Cup in Ukraine was canceled. European winter this year surrendered to ecology. But this is no reason for snowkiteers to land their kites. After all, the stage in Russia, in Togliatti, remains a full-fledged and champion stage!
At the Cup in the Samara region from February 26 to March 2, you can participate in the disciplines "Course Flight", "Marathon" and "Freestyle". The final stage of IKA-2020 will be the freestyle classification in the alpine Cortina, in Italy.
The organizers of the Russian Snowkiting World Cup seem to be weather forecasters directing the weather situation on their spot. In the Zhiguli Sea, the snow falls on schedule, the surface is getting stronger, the site is preparing to receive athletes and guests from all over the world. Winter in the Samara region will be champion!
It is important to note that the week of snowkiting in Togliatti combines several major events: the IKA SNOW KITE WORLD CUP 2020 World Cup in snowkiting and the legendary Zhiguli Sea Marathon for professional snowkiting, fan races for amateur kitesurfers, JKS children’s races for young people kite champions, Summer or Winter Challenge for all participants and, finally, the Winter Festival and its activity, the Zhiguli Sea.
The organizers include the project “SNOWKITERUSSIA”, the agency “ROQETA” and the sports club “Power of the Wind”. Partnership support is provided by the Ministry of Sports of the Russian Federation, the Government of the Samara Region, the All-Russian Federation of Sailing, the Administration of the Togliatti City District, and PAO KuibyshevAzot.
The program of events beautifully combines the sports and cultural parts, which allows absolutely everyone, without age restrictions (even animals), to become a participant or guest of this kite carnival.
This is confirmed by the list of athletes in various disciplines. Over the winter, people come to Togliatti from all over the country and the world. The largest kite group is going from Novosibirsk: 17 people, including 11 children. The organizers say hello to athletes from Skultuna (Sweden), Kharkov (Ukraine), Moscow, Anapa, Tyumen, Yekaterinburg, Surgut, Chelyabinsk, Perm! Also announced the participation in JKS children's teams from Moscow, St. Petersburg, Kolomna, Yaroslavl. It is intriguing to register a whole group of titled yachting athletes who have been claiming victory in snowkiting for more than one season: Denis Shari, Vadim Tsvetkov, Daniil Krapivin, Kirill Volkov. At the fan race, residents of the Samara region and neighboring regions still dominate. This circumstance is true – it is easier for local athletes to believe in an ideal winter spot.
