Yesterday was the first day of the IFCA Pro Kids, Junior, Youth Freestyle World Championships 2012 at Marseille. The day started off cloudy with temperatures around the 26 degrees, the first skippers meeting of the event was held in the riders lounge area at 13:00 after the inscriptions took place. The general event information and the event crew were presented to the riders. Riders from 4 continents and 9 countries signed up. The riders were put on standby due to the lack of wind, but the winds started to kick in so the riders went out to practice and to get the feeling of the conditions in the competition area. The day was hot as the sun came out, a lot of people came to the event site where they could enjoy the bmx and skateboard contests and also participate to fun games organized by Sosh the official event sponsor.
