The final day of the EFE/EFPT event in Le Brusc saw extremely strong wind, blowing with more than 40 knots. The new single elimination ladder was already prepared and the 36 competitors were ready to start the elimination.
But the police has upset the plans. “Red flags were put up along the whole coastline between Marseille and Nice with the strict announcement, that everybody who will enter either the beach or the water will be warned by the police. The council recommended to cancel the competition and gave us no authorization to send the riders out again.” Hanna Poschinger, EFPT Press manager, said.
Belgium top freestyler Dieter van der Eyken (20), who already made it in 5th place at the PWA freestyle event on Fuerteventura in July 2012, won for the very first time an EFPT event in his career. He lost in the final of the single elimination to Tonky Frans, but had a run in the double elimination winning against Davy Scheffers and defeating Tonky twice.
