Did you know that Polaris had a successful reunion in Dubai?
posted: Dec 7th, 2013 The Aerodyne French Girls won the last round over SDC Rhythm XP and would be tied in 3rd place with the US team in the Open Class competition. However, the separate category for 4way Women was very beneficial for the French team this time, as the 1st place was rewarded with $15,000 prize money, the same amount as in the 4way Open Class.
The 20.9 average is a strong statement, as only a few top teams were able to score higher than they did at the Mondial Dubai 2012.

NMP-PCH Hayabusa recovered well with the 30-pointer in Round 10 and brought a 25.1 average over the finish line. It's short of Gary Smith's 26.0 average goal, but it is still a satisfying result for the technically challenging 10-round draw. Last year's competition draw for the Mondial... (more)

Did you know that the Qatar Tigers got away with murder in Round 5?
posted: Dec 5th, 2013 The Aerodyne French Girls went even a step further in Round 9 and tied the highscore for the round of all 4way teams, after posting the second highest number two times earlier in the meet. NMP-PCH Hayabusa stumbled in Round 9 and also allowed Barkli and SDC Rhythm XP to share the highest score for the round.
Barkli completed 19 points within working time and had one point deduction. Other than that, the Aerodyne French Girls simply kept up with the Open Class pace. However, SDC Rhythm XP is still one point ahead of the French team in the female 4way category, and Round 10 will be the last word.
