2011 Peruvian Inka Challenge
Chilca Point -Lima, Peru

The next event on the IBA World Tour is the 6 Star Peruvian Inka challenge and starts on Wednesday.

This is the first of the IBA’s new 6 Star “Primary” events and carries the maximum 2000 points on the GQS ratings.
The Top 24 riders off the GSS (Grand Slam Series) will get top seeding for the event and the majority of them will be using the event to warm up for the next GSS event at Arica.
Defending Champion Pierre Louis Costes has elected not to go and will concentrate all of his energy on the Grand Slam at Chile.
“I stayed back in BOX for a few weeks to train and I will now just go to El Gringo early to focus on the next Grand Slam” said Pierre

Along with the 6 Star for Men the PIC will stage a Grand Slam drop knee event with the current World Champion Cesar Bauer keen to light up in front of a home crowd.

“ I hope for good waves and a good result” said the humble Peruvian.
Promoter Jose Ugarte is looking forward to hosting the worlds best riders and understands the important status that has been awarded to the contest as a 6 Star Primary.
“We are proud to have this rating and we will do everything in our power to make this the best event ever in Peru” he said.
