Extreme. Out of standard. Physically and mentally committed. Here is a summary of the Red Bull Ragnarok, which annually gathers more than 300 thrilled snowkiters. Riders like Canadian Peter Martel go back every year in the hope to complete this race. Here is what Peter had to tell us about the 2017 Ragnarok.
Hello Peter! What motivated you to take part in the Red Bull Ragnarok?
This event takes both physical and mental preparation. Dedicating yourself is necessary to obtain the strength and skills required. I get out and kite as much as possible, settings goals allows me to track my physical progression. Mentally, I just never give up while preparing for a race. Training myself not to be phased by pressure or discouragement is key.
