Frejús in France

First race of MotoSurf WorldCup 2017 – Fréjus in France

The first “season opening” race of MotoSurf WorldCup 2017 took a place in a small village in Fréjus in France. This race was originally placed in Monaco, but organizers of the race found so many restrictions for having the race on the ocean that it was easier to move it on a lake. Luckily for them, because there was a pretty big swell on the ocean that weekend.

So South Wake Lake has hosted the world’s fastest motorized surfers for the first time and it was a great place for JetSurf race.

Jakub Kornfeil has dominated whole weekend

JetSurf Factory Team’s racer Jakub Kornfeil was undefeated whole weekend in France. Jakub won the qualifying, won all four heats and completed his amazing weekend with two victories in the finals.

The biggest surprise of the weekend was Petr Vencovsky

Petr Vencovsky from JetSurf USA Team surprised the field finishing tied on points with Lukas Zahorsky. Petr was moved on 4th because he collected fewer points from qualification and heats. Bad luck for Petr but he definitely showed us what a strong rider he is.

South Wake Lake in Fréjus

South Wake Lake in Fréjus was a good choice for hosting a JetSurf race. Unfortunately, JetSurfing is not allowed on this lake other than for this racing weekend.
