ALACATI TURQUIE PWA

Sep 06

Back in Turquie for the 5 worldcup slalom event of the year.

Like last year we get really nice conditions with wind everyday and quite strong sometimes!!

I used only during 2 races my 7,1 Vapor Gaastra and Manta Tabou 71 and mostly of the time I was on 7,9 or 8,6 and Manta 84 specially when wind was gusty.

Like in Fuerte, I had an horrible event start with a crash on the first mark… some guy are really “idiot” to push until the crash but it is a part of racing. I have to avoid these situation whatever.

So during the all event I pushed hard to come back and on the same time I took care to do not any big mistake. Specially in quarter final where you can go to the semi final… or take 30,5 points if you finished last of it!! So sometimes it is better to miss the semie final and finish 5 than take a lot of risk on the stard or around a mark and be last of it!!

During the next 8 races i have been 2 times in final (3 and 5) so quite happy about this and never did worst than 5 in quarter! So finished 11!! I was not the faster on water but races suite good with some nice races.

Here is my ranking from day 1 to last day: 44, 24, 21, 17, 14, 11!

Whatever level is super close and ranking could have been completly different.

Now I am back in France for the French AFF tour in Alamanarre and have some rest.
