I think it is just all the years of experience he has on the rest of us. He is actually the most relaxed guy. When the pressure is on he knows better than anyone how to deal with it. From what I see most other guys can’t handle the pressure as well as Antoine. They crumble or just start panicking with equipment and try and change fins and masts. He just sticks with what he knows. He is always so chilled I don’t know how he does it. He has the mental side down. In the end you can be as fast as you like but without the confidence you will suffer. Antoine has all the racing skills combined with more and that is what makes him a winner!
