Andy Yates (Slingshot, AUS) stood proudly on top of the podium grinning from ear to ear as he received recognition as the men's Mondial du Vent 2010 single elimination Champion, as well as his first PKRA title.Yates has proved that he is going to be a tough competitor throughout the 2010 PKRA tour season. In a recent conversation with one of the official PKRA judges, he states that Yates competes with world-class style, amazing execution and difficulty.
Dutch competitor Youri Zoon (Slingshot, NED) was ranked second in this competition followed by Spanish rider Alex Pastor (Airush, ESP) who took third.
In the women's single elimination division Spanish rider Gisela Pulido (Airush, ESP) stood at the top of the podium as the women's Mondial du Vent single elimination champion. Bruna Kajiya (Flexifoil, BRA) followed in second position with Polish rider Karolina Winkowska (Slingshot, POL) in third.
