Greed for speed, Antarctica 2008

Ronny Finsås, (NOR) hat alle Rekorde geschlagen. Er ist in 5 Tagen vom Südpol bis an die Küste der Antarktis gekitet! Am besten Tag hat er in 24 stunden 503 Km zurückgelegt! Ronny war äusserst zufrieden mit unserem neuen Kiteschlitten Dragonfly. Laut Ronny hat der Schlitten perfekt funktioniert. Das hört man gerne!

Hier im Original:
„…I started kiting at South Pole 20th of January 0230 Chile time and arrived at Hercules Inlet 24th Jan 2052. Totally solo (alone) and unsupported on this leg, but of course kite-assisted.“

„Total 5 days on the route or ca. 60 hours kiting.“

„It was a fantastic ride. The weather gods treated me nice. A bit low wind the first two days, but then the catabatic ruled for the rest of the trip. Nice and sunny most of the way. No big technical problems. The kites and the pulk worked perfect.“

„The 23d I started at 0928 in the morning and kited to 0911 at the 24th. I covered a distance of 271,45nm or 502,73km in less than 24hours. I believe that must be a new world record. This was kiting roughly from Thiels mountains to Three Sails.”
