Ricardo Adarraga: "It was an incredible weeks. Mental work, physical and material, and the new brand of wax has been rewarded. With each piece and leaves me feeling better. I had a personal duel with my friend Klaus Schrottshammer of Austria. We always 1 km above him or me and we each sleeve empujábamos more. Schrottshammer that has secured the third position leaves the feeling that you can reach the stars. I am very pleased by Klaus. In the final gust of wind threw a bit of powdery snow on top of the track. This made it down to 207 while kph my loss tables to the ground. To avoid a greater evil had to drive with your hands to stay on track. This probably has cost me between 4 and 5 kmh and so I was just 207.7 km / h. But anyway, I can not complain, a week ago I had not imagined that it would be a little disappointed to be classified in the twelfth Masters! I downloaded 3 times to over 200 km / h and I had the honor of being one of the first 29 runners starting from almost the top of the trail of Montfort. "

Switzerland is a great ski speed. Be the third in Switzerland is something for me that is almost as much value as the record for Spain. Sharing the podium no less than Philippe Moret and Jonathan May, two of the five men who have passed the 250 km / h is a great honor for me.

An interesting comment
:
Ricardo was talking, after the event, to the world champion Hembel (alias "mad cow") . He had his 3 years old son, Gorka, on
 addressing to the champion exclaimed: I'm the best. To this the champion, addressing to Ricardo, graciously responded : That's a good start. He will go far.

Certificate. (FSV recognises as “official” record only speeds measured in competition by runners classified for the corresponding run (manga), that is, the speeds of “forerunners” are not registered. In Spain ski speed is not regulated by an official body)

Speed Ski (information, in Spanish,  supplied by email, 
by Ricardo  Adarraga)       

 The” Speed Ski or just “KL” (for Kilometro Lanzado, in Spanish) is a fascinating sport in which three elements, technique, equipment and skill are combined at their maximum best. The present world record of 250.70 km/h is held by Frenchman, Phillipe Goitschel.

 In Spain we are 2 fanatics of Speed Ski who have experience in International Competition. We are trying to interest the “Spanish Federation of Winter Sports” to assist us. Any help, institutional o sponsorship, would be welcome.
