According to the original schedule, the final event on the MINI Kitesurf Tour Europe (KTE) 2012 was supposed to be KTE France, to be held between the 27th and 30th of September at Nantes, La Baule. According to the revised schedule, the final event on the tour is no longer KTE France, it is KTE Spain instead.

KTE Spain was originally supposed to be the penultimate event on the tour. The original schedule said that KTE Spain would take place between the 20th and 23rd of September. According to the revised schedule, KTE Spain will take place from the 1st until the 4th of November instead. The location remains unchanged: Barcelona, Castelldefels.

“A big party area just around the city of Barcelona will prepare an unforgettable finishing line for riders and visitors,” said representatives of the MINI Kitesurf Tour Europe.

Previously known as Kitesurf Tour Europe, the competition changed its name when MINI stepped up as the first car maker in the world to sponsor kitesurfing at a European level.

Speaking about MINI, the car maker gave German Champion and Vice European Champion Mario Rodwald a brand new car. Here’s what the pro freestyle rider had to say about it: “Great sporty car I will love to ride to the best beaches all around Europe and very sympatic the color is called kite blue.”
