Athletes from 15 countries will gather at the festival "Summer in Russian" in Vladivostok

The international aquabike competition, which will be held in Vladivostok from 13 to 17 August as part of the large-scale sports and cultural festival "Summer in the Russian", will bring together athletes of the highest level. As the director of the competition noted, Belgian Peter de Smeth on the air of the Public Television of Primorye, the JISBA association, which develops aquabike competitions around the world, sent invitations to the best athletes to participate in the Jetracer Russkiy Grand Prix 2014, so the composition of the competition will be exclusive. They will have to overcome 1000 km of the water surface around the Russky Island in five racing days, 200 km in one race, informs "Pacific Russia".

In addition to aquabike competitions, the sports program of the Summer in Russian festival included performances by BMX (cycling) and FMX (freestyle motocross) masters, as well as much more, including a demonstration of certain areas of boating. The jetski races themselves will take place in close proximity to the embankment of the Far Eastern Federal University campus, so that spectators can enjoy high-speed races. In addition to the long race, spectacular ring races are also planned closer to the shore - the athletes will have to go around the buoys.

Children's competitions will also take place - stages of the Primorsky Territory championship in the Formula of the Future category. Master classes under the guidance of experienced instructors will be held on August 12, 13 and 14, approximately from 15 to 17 hours. There will also be one stage of the championship of the Primorsky Territory on "sitting" and "standing" jet skis. These will be 15-minute single marathon races, reports PrimaMedia.

In all, about a hundred masters of aquabike, cycling and motor-freestyle from 15 countries will come to the regional center of Primorye. Among them will be the teams on aquabike from Guadeloupe and the team of the seaside rider Alexei Chernukha, one of the strongest in Russia.

As Peter de Smot noted, the Russian Island is an excellent base for holding such a sports and cultural festival, as well as for organizing the training process in the format of an international base, the FEFU campus has all the facilities to accommodate guests, hold competitions and trainings. And this is not to mention the unique nature. The Belgian sports manager said that some of the riders will come to Vladivostok with their families to fully enjoy the rest in Primorye.
