MANCORA, Peru (Monday, November 3, 2008) - Round 1 of the Movistar Classic Mancora Peru presented by Rip Curl is scheduled to hit the water at 6:30am in clean two-to-three foot (1 metre) waves at Mancora in Northern Peru.

Event No. 6 of 8 on the 2008 ASP Women’s World Tour, the Movistar Classic Mancora Peru pres. by Rip Curl is expecting a full day of competition as event organizers and competitors take advantage of the swell on offer.

The surf is clean this morning, but it appears that we’re ping from the last few days so we’ll be getting Round 1 out there this morning as soon as possible,” Rich Porta, ASP Women’s World Tour Head Judge said. “We want to take advantage of the conditions on offer as much as we can and we’re expecting a full day of competition.”

The Movistar Classic Mancora Peru pres. by Rip Curl is a crucial stop in the hunt for the ASP Women’s World Title.

Sofia Mulanovich (PER), 25, former ASP Women’s World Champion, is the new frontrunner on this year’s ASP Women’s World Tour following a solid result at the last event in Sydney. Despite a foot injury, Mulanovich is confident that she will be able to perform in her home country and will face Rosanne Hodge (ZAF), 21, and Valeria Sole (PER), in her opening round heat.

Stephanie Gilmore (AUS), 20, reigning ASP Women’s World Champion and defending event champion, follows closely behind Mulanovich and will look make ground here in Mancora. Gilmore faces Megan Abubo (HAW), 30, and Anali Gomez (PER), in Round 1 of the Movistar Classic Mancora Peru pres. by Rip Curl.

Up first will be current ASP Women’s World No. 4 Amee Donohoe (AUS), 27, up against powerful goofy-footer Jessi Miley-Dyer (AUS), 22, and 2008 Dream Tour rookie Nicola Atherton (AUS), 22.

The Movistar Classic Mancora Peru pres. by Rip Curl will be webcast LIVE via MOVISTAR CLASSIC MANCORA PERU beginning at 6:30am.
