Just a quick word to thank Howard and Turner Downhill for bringing out such a good board (GS/Hybrid XL "Fatboy"), that I was able to defeat the best Swiss guys (Maurus, Raffael, Martin S and others!) as well as Paul Price, Michael Stride, Chris Eggers, Gianluca Ferrero on many other strong slalomers (we were 41 in total) in the Giant slalom event in Kreuzlingen, Switzerland, Nov 2.

Giant slalom is traditionally not my strongest discipline and it came as a good surprise to me that I would feel so strong with the board. It was just the right setup for the type of course that Chris Eggers of Germany had set. (The course was similar to American GS, except for the first 4 cones!)

I also used Tracker RTX/RTS (Thank's Vlad!) and Turner Avalons (85A). Those wheels roll!

Thank you all for the equipment which made my victory possible!
