The first ever Awaza PWA World Cup Turkmenistan proved to be a tricky, and sometimes frustrating affair, as light and shifty winds unfortunately interrupted the regular thermal winds which usually frequent Awaza. Still Fanatic’s Pierre Mortefon and Matteo Iachino did great both qualifying for the finals. As the finals could’t be finished Pierre claimed 2nd and Matteo 3rd place in the overall world ranking!
With the former leader of the tour, Albeau, losing his position at the top of the rankings, Cyril Moussilmani (Starboard / Severne) succeeds him. The Frenchman successfully navigated his way into the winners’ final to climb to the top, as did fellow countryman and Fanatic team rider Pierre Mortefon (Fanatic / North), who rises one place to second in the world. Fanatic’s Matteo Iachino (Fanatic / North) entered the second event of the year in eighth place, but now occupies third overall. The Italian showed great board speed in the light winds to qualify for the winners’ final and he also finishes in joint first.
Congratulations to our riders! Well done!
