Sad Reality Check Dakhla Dessert
Was so happy to have my first PKRA of the season in Dakhla. It is my 4th time in the mindblowing dessert here and one of my favourite spots to kite. Just had finished 1 month of second trimester studies for one heavy day with all my exams, and was so looking forward to be focussed only on kiting and showing what I had mastered over the winter on the water.
Qualifications for the main event were going to be hard. First Heat we were with 3 riders, what is difficult for the judges, only winner passing, I had to borrow the 5,5m from Bruna, Nailed 8 tricks and to my surprise only got second place because my opponent was more power full . Now there were 21 riders left for the last 2 spots in the main event. I won 2 heats on a row, beating Spiesberger, Victor Hayes and Bournay; getting me in the finals of the qualifications. Again 3 riders. Ready for action. Second trick and bang……broke my chickenloop…..loosing time, loosing the heat and loosing my place in the main event.
Feeling Shit and Sad.
Its a hard reality check. But I will overcome and use my time here to get stronger; I need more power. Realizing that its only the Top 8 what is counting now and I have to enter to win against anybody.
The season is long, I am young, Time is on my side, I will be back. Stronger.
Bring it On
