[2003][Morro Bay] Who are going?

Post by Hans Koraeus » Tue Jul 08, 2003 10:10 pm

Would be fun to know which Europeans are planning to go over to the US for the Worlds.

Also interesting to know if someone have found any good flight deals.

Rumours goes that Luca will be dragged over with the help of American funds. Maybe we should start an European fund as well to help out.

No rumours or news about European participation. :???: I can't believe it.

Well isn't this topic as interesting as a dead fish. Since I'm fully responsible by starting this topic I feel the need to shake some life into that fish.

Hold on to your hats! I'm going. But let's be honest and say that it's not to pretend that I'm in any way are going to defend the European (or Swedish) slalom scene. Let's face it. I wouldn't be the one for that mission. But for doing a funny little film about the spectacle... that's more like it. And since I'm there it would be a shame not to enter.

I'll be in LA September 23 and heading back Oktober 3. Any info of skate happenings during this period are welcome (apart from the worlds of course).

So what of Max Bimler...surely he can schedule a dental conference the next week and write off the trip. He raced- what's the story?

One step at a time John. First let's see if we can persuade him to come to the European championships in Antibes.

But then again Max is an old school European slalomer. I don't know if the course setting att Morro Bay would be in his favour.

3 Englishmen
1 little Swede

That's the current status. I guess Price is going for the PRO class this time so don't expect any European miracles this time. Or...

Tiny rumours tell that Luca is starting to show some interest in this last minute. He's looking for a sponsor to pay his flight. Any sponsors out there?

By the way. I was over on the "other forum" to get some info and inspiration for the Morro trip. Since I think that on this site it doesn't "shake" very much. I very seldom go to the "other place" unless for a very specific reason. Sadly enough my good idea turned out to be a bad idea. How much inspiration do YOU get from this...

I can't believe that I actually had to make that last post. (my comment: Jack had put in a topic before this saying that any use of violence on the competition will get them DQ'ed for all future FCR races) It's moments like this when I wonder if putting on an event like the Worlds is even worth it.

I come home from an incredibly positive event, "Skateboarding Across America - On Board For Lowe Syndrome", take a couple of days off and then dive into preperations for the Worlds, only to find myself making a post about possible violence at the race.

Absolutely amazing.

Maybe we should just forget the whole thing.
Happy holiday! Here I come. :roll:

I am going to Morro Bay, it will be an interesting event I'm sure!

What is the word on Luca attending?

Seems like he's coming.

We will know for sure in Antibes. Then we will be able to talk to him. Eye to eye.

With my hearting shoulder I think I will skip the cross and have one more day to hope for the pain to go away.

We know for sure now that Luca is going to Morro Bay. He's looking forward to the race and he's ready to adapt to whatever courses there will be whether it's close to the stuff he's used to doing or not.

I start to regret now that I'm not going. For anyone else who can still make a last minute decision, don't hesitate. It was well worth my visit last year. I was very impressed.

Wishing you all a great racing weekend!

Claude Regnier and Ed Economy will meet Luca at the airport, and then arrange for him to travel up to San Luis Obispo / Morro Bay once Corky arrives.

Jani - I really wish you were coming. It should be a good event, with Paul Dunn setting the courses for hybrid and tight.
