EFPT 2014 - Results

Steven van Broeckhoven wins the EFPT for the 4th time

EFPT 2014 - Results

Wind or no-wind for the final EFPT Event of the year in South France? The forecasted light South wind at the final day of competition left the EFPT crew hoping for a local effect that would make it stronger and make a freestyle competition possible, yet it didn’t fill in which left organisers, crew and riders disappointed afterall. With only one windy event this year, the ranking from Podersdorf is the “Overall Ranking” for the year as well and a huge amount of people joined the prize-giving. Third place goes to highly talented and impressive young rider Jacopo Testa (RRD) from Italy who showed a decent performance in the lighter wind in Austria. Second place goes to Everon Tonky Frans (Tabou/Gaastra) from Bonaire, who currently lives in Lanzarote. Tonky convinced the judges with his fluent style even on his biggest freestyle sail. First place in the European Freestyle Pro Tour overall ranking and therefor European Champion for the fourth time (2009/2010/2013/1014) is once again Steven Van Broeckhoven (JP/Neilpryde) from Belgium. Steven is one of the guys on tour who is always willing to make a competition happen and is always up for a good challenge which makes him a great athlete. Next to bringing a lot of input and feedback to the EFPT he is also always living the example of a sportsman- clearly inspiring the younger riders on tour. We are delighted and proud to crown him as the European Freestyle Pro Tour Champion and are looking forward to see more of his extraordinary freestyle skills at our events in the future

Steven stated:“I am really happy to win the overall title again! Even though we didn’t have wind on the last two events, it is still a first place and the conditions in Podersdorf have been challenging and most of the best riders of the world were there. So I am super happy to win the tour again!”

With a huge amount of people watching the prize-giving, the third EFPT event at the European Freestyle Expression ended with a beautiful sunset and the outlook for the EFE 2015, where we are hoping for the return of the storms that hit Six Fours les Plages in 2012. For more info click www.efpt.net
