This was the most hard-core slalom we have had in a long while, it had the possibility to be dangerous, but in the end we only had a few small incidents. There were a lot of big crashes and close shaves, but mostly it was extremely fun racing. I loved racing through the waves, it is similar to where I live and I am comfortable in these conditions. I am always hoping for waves, as there is more adrenaline. I still like the 9.0m slalom also, as that is technical and you have to be fine-tuned like nothing else. The top three came out in the podium positions because they are better! They are the most consistent guys. Everyone else was all over the place but they were just banging out final after final. Antoine is extremely fast always, he is probably the fastest and then you have Matteo and Pierre who are not as fast but super consistent and cool headed. That is the difference!
