Competitors from 22 countries will vie for the top spot in motosurf on Brno Dam/Brněnské přehradě. Brno is the first of the five event world series.
Motosurfing recently became a competitive sport and is rooted in the Czech Republic. It’s fitting that the Czech Republic hold the first round of the 2018 MotoSurf WorldCup because this is where it all began. It’s also the home of Jetsurf, the world’s leading manufacturer of motorized surfboards.
Riders will fight for World Cup points in both men’s and women’s categories. Forty-eight men make up the men’s side and the women hold twenty one slots. A couple of famous guys are competing in the men’s event. First is Jakub Kornfeil the current motosurfing champion and also a Moto 3 competitor. Second, former hockey player, Petr Prucha will be on the hunt for points.
The women’s side of things is very impressive with 7 time world champion jet skier Anya Colley in the mix. Current world champion, Martina Bravencova is also on the roster. She won’t easily be taken down. Watch for Aneta Sacherova on a comeback run!
The racing begins Thursday June 7 and ends on June 9 when the awards ceremony takes place. Some other cool stuff is happening that weekend. A timed race for a $10,000 CZK award will take place Saturday. In keeping with Jetsurf’s green theme, the E-ON Challenge Cup will also run. It’s a race held on surfboards with electric engines.
The Brno MotoSurf WorldCup series is a part of the Starobrno Ignis Brunensis Festival and world super-bikes championship. It’s a surf and turf event complete with a fireworks show at the end.
