Day one of the Alacati Slalom Event didn’t see many surprises. We are use to see Antoine dominating the racing scene without anyone being able to get close to him. And in the first race of the event it wasn’t different. He solidly won the first race, followed by the always-consistent Kevin Pritchard in second and Finian Maynard in third. Ross Williams made a good event start and did fourth in this first day and Ben Van Der Steen showed that he is still on form after finishing fourth overall in the last event in Fuerteventura. Jimmy Díaz and Gonzalo Costa were showing their brand new sponsors: Starboard for Díaz and Exocet for Costa.
In the ladies, no surprises neither. Valerie Ghibaudo won the race followed by Karin Jaggi in second and Verena Fauster in third. Great performance from the young French girl Alice Arutkin, who finished fourth in this first race.
