The Race to 4,000 K1RS Points Has Begun!
10 February 2019
Qualification for the 2020 K1 World Championships begins with a strong showing for January’s 31 Day K1RS Points Challenge
The quest for the 2019 K1 Speed points championship has started! At stake is a lot more than just a trophy; it’s a chance to qualify for the K1 Speed World Championships in 2020. Racers at K1 Speed Toronto competed nonstop all January to try to win the 31 Day K1RS Points Challenge and began building up their 2019 points haul. On January 1st, all previous points were erased, giving everyone a fair shot at the top step in 2019.
The concept behind the 31 Day K1RS Points Challenge was simple; be the racer with the most K1RS points at the end of the month to win the Challenge.
Taking up the hunt were newcomers and veterans alike. With 1970 points and 1822 points respectively, Daniel Demaras and Jason Wong took the top two spots in the 31 Day K1RS Points Challenge, just as they finished at the end of the 2018 points championship. But they faced tough competition. Michael Kostopoulos competed all month long and took third spot with 1700 while Dawson Campbell, Michael Accardi, Christian Menezes, and Dan Balm challenged, each scoring more than 1500 points. In the Top 10 were also Chris Demaras, Paul Kuleba, and Shamar Walker who battled for those extra K1RS points day after day.
After seeing Daniel Demaras qualify for the 2019 K1 Speed World Championships, many racers are setting out to rack up 4000 K1RS points in hopes of making it to the 2020 championships. Wong and Kotsopoulos are nearly halfway there, and it’s still only January! With the rate K1 Speed racers have been going so far, it’s clear that reaching the 4000 K1RS plateau is a difficult but achievable goal.
The competition is fierce and fast, and January’s 31 Day K1RS Points Challenge shows how much enthusiasm, excitement and high-speed action there is at K1 Speed Toronto in 2019.
