Pierre Mortefon is the PWA Slalom Vice World Champion 2016!

Pierre Mortefon is the PWA Slalom Vice World Champion 2016!

With the wind failing to co-operate on the final day of racing at the PWA World Tour in La Torche, Fanatic´s Pierre Mortefon finishes the year as the Vice World Champion for the second year in a row and it seems only a matter of time before the Frenchman will go one better, but he will have to wait until next year to do that now!

Pierre finished 2nd at the PWA stop in Korea, 1st in Costa Brava/Spain, 3rd on Fuerte, 2nd in Hvide Sande/Denmark but only 9th on Sylt. It was a very close overall finish between him and Matteo but unfortunately the wind did not cooperate in La Torche, so they were not able to fight it out in that final decisive race.

Well done Pierre – Vice World Champ is a enormous title in any case!!!

Also big thanks to our French team representing the brand in La Torche, the booth looked great and the riders did a great job during the autograph hours to make the most out of the now wind action.
