Two pro Dutch kitesurfers, Lasse Walker and Steven Akkersdijk, go snowkiting for the first time during the world’s most extreme snowkite event.

The skies above Hardangervidda in Norway were once again filled with hundreds of kites as 250 participants from 30 different nations tackled the gruelling five-lap course. Competitors took on the challenge on either skis or snowboards, with only the very hardiest managing to overcome the changeable wind conditions to go the full distance. Participants in Red Bull Ragnarok attempt to use kite power alone to complete five laps of the course in the shortest possible time. The race format is a mass start and the kiters then have a five-hour time limit to finish the course.
