Björn Dunkerbeck seems to be unbeatable at the moment! He could win the last three events he participated: the PWA Slalom final at Sylt in October 2010, the Speed event at Napoleon Plage next to Port Saint-Louis du Rhone in South of France and now in January 2011 the Marathon from Ledge to Lancelin in Western Australia. Congratulations! We hooked up with 40 times worldchampion Björn Dunkerbeck, who already used his 2011 worldcup setup. He gave some updates about the event in Australia and his general feelings.
