posted: Apr 10th, 2013 The Fun Flag had not made it from Canada to the Paraclete XP Outdoor Championship 2013. However, it was at Bodyflight Bedford for the World Challenge 2013, as the NSL News reported on 4 April 2013.
It was not really flying as usually at the outdoor meets since host Paul Mayer once again played his own game with it. He makes it visible on the DZ-TV screens with hints of the location... (more)

Did you know that NMP-PCH Hayabusa still has to watch out?
posted: Apr 8th, 2013 The aftermath of the World Challenge 2013 continues with the promised Round 10 live videos and the conversation with NMP-PCH Hayabusa after the last round of the meet.
A happy and relaxed team knew that they did not have to work too hard to win the meet this time. There was only one World Challenge in the history of the event where the winning team was 27 points ahead of the team in 2nd place.

Did you know that XL is in trouble?
posted: Apr 6th, 2013 It has never happened in the history of the World Challenge that XL did not place withing the Top 4 which are traditionally the money slots at Bodyflight Bedford. This time, XL may not have the resources at the end of the meet to buy the beer and celebrate. XL is in trouble.
XL has competed in Bedford with different lineups since 2007 and always won some cash of the total jackpot, sometimes even for the 2nd place. At the moment and after Round 8, XL would end up in 5th place and would go home empty handed.
The XL hopes for the day and the second half of the meet were supported by a great... (more)
Did you know that Dennis Praet still has Round 10 of the Mondial 2012 in his mind?
posted: Apr 6th, 2013 The NSL News followed NMP-PCH Hayabusa to the team room after Round 8. It was lunch time, and the leader had a few minutes to share some thoughts with the NSL News and coach Gary Smith who joined the conversation.
Main topic was the Hayabusa scoresheet, which has been looking cleaner than ever at the World Challenge 2013 - at least until Round 7. There was only one single mark by the judges in Round 1.
It was bad timing since a few more marks brought down the score of Round 8. However, Evolution had to deal with... (more)
