Last years champions, Richard Wernersson (28) and Simon Jaktlund (34) from Sweden, will be back in 2015 to defend their honour. In their words: Last year we had so much fun. VAKE is the best and we would like to try to have as much fun as possible and hopefully do a good race.
The application-window for Varanger Arctic Kite Enduro 2015 is now closed. Thanks to all you adventurous kiters for wanting to do this Arctic kite expedition! It warms our kite-hearts. We're now starting the process of picking the line-up for VAKE 2015, a difficult task. We'll have the list ready by December 1st, and by the looks of all the strong applications, there will be a waiting-list as well. Prequalified teams (from top ten VAKE 2014) are: ABC Printhouse, AlleMannen, Severyane, Whiteout, Bora Czechs and Team Sweden.
For the sixth time in VAKE: veterans Petr Petras (38) and Tomas Krivsky (38) from Prague in the Czech Republic. They came in as team #8 in 2014 slightly disappointed for not advancing from the 7th place in 2013. Bet they're aiming at the top three this year.
