Kiteboarding champs hit Cape Town

Jesse Richman was crowned "King of the Air" when he came out tops in Red Bull's competitive kiteboarding competition. See all the pictures.

Calling all fast and furious riders. Are you South Africa’s Red Bull Kart Fight champion in hiding? Red Bull is giving amateur karters a golden opportunity to set their fastest lap to qualify for the National Final at Kyalami Raceway on the 11th of May.

To make your dream come true buy any Red Bull drink variant, take your till slip to a participating track and set your lap time. A fee of R50.00 will apply to set lap time at all participating tracks.

And viola! You're now on your way to entering the Red Bull Kart Fight - a global tournament aiming to determine the fastest amateur kart racer in the World of Red Bull. There will be national competitions in 20 countries around the globe in search of the best racers to represent each country and the winners will then travel to the Red Bull Kart Fight World Final where the overall winner will be crowned as the Red Bull Kart Fight World Champion in December 2013.

Although the venue for the final has not yet been decided. Could you be the South African champion who will win this trip? Keep in mind that no person under the age of 13 may compete and that this competition is for amateurs only.
