This ain’t no competition for rookies! Ragnarök in Scandinavian mythology means “Destination of Gods”. You must be persistent, tough and in a good shape to endure these conditions. It’s a 5-hour struggle and 100 kilometers to ride on snowboard or skis. You don’t have to be the fastest though – but you must observe what’s happening along the track, of course, if the visibility will let you so.

This year’s Goddess was the 16-year-old Nobile rider from Russia – Valeria Garashchenko. Her brother Artem – the current snowkite world’s champion in Freestyle category – finished 3rd among men. Christian Labbe – brilliant Canadian who took the competition like a professor – almost climbed the podium as well. Another Nobile rider – Gehrer “Fly Fish“ Reinhold (Austria), the world‘s snowkite champion in Race category finished the race at high 7th rank, despite an injury (prolapsed disc) Justyna Sierpińska was classified right in the middle of the wmn’s ranking – at 14th position.

We’re all looking forward to next year!
