The world’s largest snow kite competition of the year once again was a hit! Kiters from more than 30 nations worldwide had gathered at Hardangervidda again this year. Well within the time limit of five hours, Felix Kersten crossed the finish line in 3 hours and 10 minutes to claim his third Ragnarok-title. Last time Felix came out on top was in 2017, and now he is back where he belonged after a 2nd place finish last year.

It was a hard fought battle in the men’s snowboard-category. It looked like Peter Martel, who won in 2016 and 2018, would claim his third title, but in the end, it was Bruce Kessler of Switzerland who took the win. The 19-year-old Swiss came into this year’s race with a silver medal from 2017 (on skis!) in his bag, and walks away with his first Red Bull Ragnarok-title. Kessler reached the finish line in 3 hours and 23 minutes.

What would Ragnarok be without Steph Bridge? She claimed her fifth consecutive title this year, but we have an idea that this one is extra special for her. She is one of the most decorated participants, but this year she finally made it to the finish line for the very first time. With 15 minutes left on the clock, she could celebrate her victory!

The women’s snowboard-category was won by Aija Ambrasa from Latvia. She came close to finishing four laps and claimed the gold in front of Kirsti Henriksen and Sigrid Kaup Aamot, both Norwegians.
