PWA Champions – The French Rule the Roost

In fact Albeau was not the only Frenchman who found himself standing tall in front of the worlds media, it was a crowded French affair aboard the podium in Costa Brava, where Cyril Moussilmani and Pierre Mortefon took 2nd and 3rd place respectively after a solid and consistent performance throughout.

Also worthy of a mention was Ben van der Steen who fought off a spell of bad luck during a couple of the earlier races to finally emerge victorious in the final of round 5. Having come from the IFCA Slalom Worlds as the 2014 Slalom World Champion he left his mark at the final hurdle to show that he also has a strong shot for the overall title this year.
