 SIERAVUORI, Finland - Zane Schweitzer (Starboard) puts on another impressive performance at Stop 3 of the European Cup presented by Starboard by winning the long distance race and placing 2nd in the sprints, earning him his 3rd straight win on the Cup. This result has made him now untouchable on the European Cup Ratings.


Set in the beautiful region of Sieravuori, this stop saw Zane match up against Europe's leading racers in an elite field and a very unique course given the location. In the long distance, the dramatic scenery was all around and the racing between the Top 5 was intense, as they battled for position right up to the beach, with Zane capturing the win. In the sprint racing, 2nd was enough for Zane to secure the overall win, and to continue his momentum coming into the next big event for the World Series, to take place in Fehmarn Germany from the 18th - 20th July. This will be Stop 4 of the European Cup, but also Stop 3 on the 2014 Stand Up World Series, as the World's best will once again congregrate to do battle.

Leonard Nika steps up on Day 2 to take the win in the sprints and 2nd overall


Leonard Nika (Starboard) has been on great form this year and it shows with his Top ten ranking on the World Series (currently 8th) and 5th on the European Cup ratings coming into this event.

With a 4th place to kick things off in the long distance, Leonard knew that he would have to put it all on the line in the sprints to have a chance at a win here in Sieravuori. This he did and more, taking the win in the sprint racing, and while it was not enough for Leonard to secure the win, he did secure a well deserved 2nd place behind Zane (Starboard).

So a great result for the Italian Stallion, which now moves him into 3rd place overall in the Cup Ratings (2nd European) as he will now put his mind to Germany, and then of course when the European Cup heads home for him to Rome, Italy from the 25th - 27th July at Santa Severa Beach.

Casper Steinfath continues to assert his presence on the European Cup


Casper Steinfath (Naish) continues to show that he is one of Europe's leading lights and one of the World's most consistent paddlers, once again posting a great result here in Finland with a 3rd place overall.

The Viking had to feel more at home than the rest of the crew here in Scandinavia and this showed in his 2nd place finish in the long distance.

In the sprint racing, a 3rd place finish was enough to secure his 3rd overall for the event, unable to surpass Leonard Nika (Starboard) with his win getting the edge to secure 2nd.

Casper is now sitting in 2nd place in the European Cup Ratings and leading European with a string of good results in Bilbao, Oleron and now Finland.
