dear charles:
you didn't skate the ramp when you were here last time,so how come you know?

anyway...
i just wanted to offer help,i did not want to start a controversy here.
lots of racers told me they like the idea for the big ramp to be in paris for the gs.
if you guys think it is not suitable for the event then that is your oppinion and it has to be respected.

It is just my opinion, Trocadero is already very fast. With a big ramp, it will be very very fast!
But it is just my opinion and I am not a Big star in slalom!

The Big ramp is too BIG for Trocadero Giant for me!

See you to Paris!

hey ho
time off :)

For now, Donald/Pavel is building us two new ramps! We hope they will give you SOME speed into the slalom! Don, Let s talk about that via email.

And nothing more is decided! ;)

What happened to the idea of running a dual hybrid instead of single lane GS?

I have a question.

Will there be a place where we can park our cars? Or will we have to park on the streets around Trocadero? I guess that costs money as well, right?

That's an issue in Paris.
It's forbidden to park on the race site (even where you have seen a kind of car park last years, at the end of the slopes if you ever came).
Only essential vehicles that have a special authorization can be be there for organization needs (we have 4 trucks, 2 emergency ambulance so not much place left).
Even me I won't have a reserved seat for my car!

You can find some spot to park in the area, but it's not so easy and most of them are not free.
Best thing to do is to park your car in your hotel carpark or a quiet area near the place you'll stay and to come with public transportation.

We tried to put the tapeswitch about 50cm from the back stopper on the startingramp at our session yesterday and it worked like a charm. Perhaps this is a good idea to prevent lifting.

Image

The trigger was never started accidentily, and no starts were missed du to lack of preassure on the back foot.

As a sidenote the platform is 135cm long from stopper to where the transition starts and that feels like more than enough.

Good idea?

Way to go. Yes it is a good idea. Although placement would be critical. Perhaps too for a variety of level racers.

Are you able to leave enough room for those that do not take a full pull and also those that rock the start?

The idea is good but it can be challenging insofar as if you wanna have a small reaction time you don't see where your rear wheels are - you'd have to guess/find out when to go with the beeps...

About rockin the board. Yes and no, of course you can roll back and forth some but only the length of your wheelbase without starting the timer. Probably enough for those who need to feel the rythm.

Placement is critical. You would like to have it as far forward as possible, basically the one with the shortest wheelbase will decide the placement. As far as I know the Airflow Jani boards are the ones with the shortest wheelbase and these will still make for 50cm of pull/rocking.

The difference of having the switch at the front hitting it with the front wheels and having it in the middle hitting it with the rear wheels is just a difference of 10-20 cm depending on wheelbase and platform length. My guess is that if you are able to time the beep perfectely you would get 0.03-0.05 seconds early start using this system (based on that the 50 cm wheelbase gives you 0.10-0.20 seconds advantage when lifting the wheels). Actually I could measure this just for fun.

Since we are talking hundreds of seconds or rather 10 cm difference my guess is that your timing of the beep will be more of an issue than the difference where the switch is located. From what I've seen at races most people leave within 0.3-0.5 seconds after the beep, so they would actually make a slightly better start using this.

Also this is probably only useful in the pro category, and since the switch is only duct taped you can move it to the start for the ams. If anyone feel like standing close to the front and roll in very slow, perhaps you should consider moving to the ams.

And Ramón I think you should raise your focus from the front wheels to perhaps the course when the beep goes, or you might as well look at the hooter girls at the sponsor tent ;)

And hey, its just an idea, I'm not part of the organization...

I'm quite tempted by this idea. Unless some really good arguments come up against it, I would vote for giving it a try.

Yes it's a bit touchy to try that here... we will walk on it, roll on it before start
the real start would be behing the front wheels, isn't it a bit strange

A good solutions is the kind of gates they have in Swiss, magnets release the gates on the start...
(please another post to discuss all that!!)

The Mironenko's are coming!

Post by Jani Soderhall » Mon May 21, 2007 10:48 pm

Stas and Sveta from Ukraine just obtained their tickets to come to Paris!!!

Stas Mironenko was one of Soviet Union's (although we called them all Russians) fastest slalomers back in the days and now he's back again along with his wife Sveta.

It's really great to hear they managed to sort it out and come and see what slalom racing is all about at the Trocadero - in the heart of Paris!

See you all soon! I'm travelling the rest of this week, so I won't be of much help here on the forum (or even via email).

Let the race begin!

I should start to train too :( :(

couldn't not even come yeasterday because of little interview yeasterday night
but hey, no training = new challenge during the race

For what I know Jason is coming (I'd like to contact him but I've lost a lot of emails, it would be cool if someone could give me his contacts).
For the others, know that it's perhaps the last PSWC!

Training, Oh Yeah!

Post by Claude Regnier » Wed May 23, 2007 3:04 pm

Oh yeah, Thanks for the shot Fred. Dominic thanks for improving the looks, EH!

Training yesterday included staying awake for a long period then some coaching at the troca. What a great place for a party. Last actual training was Texas. Time before that North Carolina. So when I get my a$$ kicked we'll know why.

MB and I did get some well needed sleep and we're ready. We've had a tough stresstfull time this year with the whole sk8park thing. Last year was tough but less stressful.

Even better when the party is an International slalom race. We seem to have free internet from some nearby provider, :)

Safe travels see you all soon.

Pardon my language, but Scandinavian Airlines are such a buch of fuckin assholes. All flights on friday 25:th are cancelled due to union conflict.

Hopefully we'll find something else, but at the moment at least 6 swedes are stuck in swiiden, so if we don't show up at least you know why...

very hot and beautiful day today
but yeah, saturday we can have some quite heavy rain showers
for sunday and monday, not so much rain, just light showers so perhaps it won't be a problem
Trocadero ever prove that its red pavement dry quite fast.

let's hope that the Big Boss is a skater!

Rain, rain go away!

Post by Claude Regnier » Fri May 25, 2007 7:13 pm

Okay, it's Friday evening and the rain and lightning just hit us hard. Gary, Flu, Micheal (Sweden) and his two boys amongts other we're practising.

When the storm hit the wind was strong and some of the large tents fliped as others began to be fastened and secured. We made it to the museum out of the rain then headed to the metro rather then walk to our appartment.

Well that's what we thought. The metr near our appartment was shut down. Must of had to do with the storm. Sure we'll find out later.

Rain is forcast for everyday this weekend so let's keep our fingers crossed.

Safe travels to everyone still driving in for the race.

Perhaps one day I will make it there....anyways, Cabbage & I will be throwing down a longboard jam at Lansdowne Skate Park in Baltimore at the same time as your race and we will set a banked slalom course as well but w/o use of a timer this time. We will pause for a moment to salute the racers in Paris. Have fun!

Hi there,
I am sorry to inform that after waitng until 14:00 yesterday to decide if we were going or not. We have decided not to go to Paris due to the bad weather.
I have no words to describe how difficult it was for me, after weeks of planning and training, to make that decision. Arrrggghhhhh!!!!
Anyways, I will see you all in Hannover.
Best of luck from The Dutch Team.

After the storm on Friday, we had a good saturday with clouds but also a lot of sun.
Today, we had a lot of hopes and everybody was excited to race the special courses setted up in the night. But constant light rain kill the whole afternoon and the bowl session.
So tomorrow, let's hope to have enough time to finished at least the special qualifications.

Here's an express gallery of pictures of Saturday:

A big congrats to Cris Barrett. He laid down the fastest time in the AM, GS and nailed 2nd overall. Adam Winston held the top spot for a while and ended up around 6th or so.

A big congrats to Civ for stepping up to the Pros and skating well all weekend.

Jackmam skated great and It was nice to see him take the AM overall award. Mitchell made his 2nd run count and took 1st. in the GS today.

Ramon locked up 1st. overall in the Pros

Katie took home a 2nd in the GS today (I think) It rained most of the day and we made due between drops getting 2 runs each in all the events. The Pros and Women had to run both the Special & GS today.

It was another successful event with the usuual frustrating hickups. Way to go everyone especially the Canucks moving up there, EH!
Many Happy Pumps!
