PWA Slalom World Cup Japan – Mortefon Family on the podium!

The FLY! ANA Yokosuka PWA World Cup finishes with two 3rd places for the Mortefon family. Due to sad wind conditions during the event week, only one elimination round could be completed.
Therefore the final results of both men’s and women’s competitions were already fought out in the first two racing days. Luckily the Mortefon Family, namely Pierre and Marion Mortefon performed on point. Pierre constantly finished his heats on a second place. In the winners final he then reached a third place. It seems that Marion’s favourite colour is BRONZE, as she came to the finish line in each and every of her heats on third place.
Marco Lang had bad luck: with a fifth place in the first heat, he didn’t get the chance to improve his score and climb up in the event ranking. There was simply no wind for further eliminations.
Hopefully there will be better conditions at the upcoming event in Korea, starting next weekend on the 19th of May. We keep our fingers crossed for strong wind, that our #WarpBoyZ and ladies can prove what they are made of!
