The Lancelin Classic looks like it was another huge success. The Western Austrilain event has been running since 1986, and boasts a giant downwinder with 400 entrants, plus a high level wave event, dominated by the local rippers. This year saw youngster Jeager Stone win the final ahead of local boy Luke Warmsley in 2nd and last years champ, Ben Severne in 3rd. C7 gives us a few more details here.
The downwinder saw Bjorn Dunkerbeck lead the way and cross the line victorious. After struggling last year with too big equipment, Bjorn made no mistakes this year and took the coveted prize. For the full results check here.
Our headline video today comes from British Freestyle Champion Andy \’Bubble\’ Chambers. He talks us through his 2010 year, then demonstrates the skills needed to win the UK title. Check out his nice work with the green screen.
Some top transfer news just in. With the 2011 season official started you can expect a few transfer changes coming up and they dont get much higher profile than Finian Maynard moving back to NeilPryde. Whilst there is no official announcement just yet it seems that his inclusion on the NeilPryde website is a slight give away as to where he might be heading.
Another change is top Itatlian racer Alberto Menegatti, who moves to Gaastra, maybe taking up Finians old position. Whilst not quite so high profile, watch out for him in the ranking as has been steadily moving up, finishing 12th last year. Check out his profile.
If the cold is getting you down, why not head off to Kaulis new centre in Gostoso, Brazil. With waves, freestyle, and freeride all on offer, as well as beautiful golden sand beaches, it looks like paradise. Check out the video if you need more persuasion.
Failing a trip to Brazil, the other solution is just to \’man-up\’ and get out there. Adam Simms and Mike Archer, show their levels of enthusiasm for the sport by heading out over Christmas to enjoy some bump and jump action.
Lastly, multiple world champ Antoine Albeau really does not rest. In preparation for the up coming Vietnam PWA World Cup, he has heading off to New Caladonia to take part in the ANG Gran Prix. Fairly obviously he is winning, so thats another good start for the champ! Check out the results so far.
