... that France is on track for a new record average in 8way?
Counting the 8way points: Aerodyne Maubeuge
posted Aug 15th, 2013 -
The last Sun Path Products NSL News update from Banja Luka mentioned briefly that the French national 8way team, Aerodyne Maubeuge, was still be chasing down the highest meet average in history, which the Golden Knights had between 1997 and 2012, before last year's US Army lineup brought it up from 22.2 to 29.9 at the Mondial Dubai 2012.
The same French lineup that posted the 22.5 average in Dubai is now competing for the last time together in Banja Luka. The 23.4 average after five rounds is a solid foundation to challenge the 22.9 average of the Golden Knights.
Aerodyne Maubeuge made 50 training jumps since the Mondial Dubai 2012, just enough to warm up for the last big challenge before the 8way lineup will change for the upcoming years.

The Sun Path Products NSL News audience has the opportunity to follow the French national 8way team on the record challenging road in Banja Luka. The video is showing all five competition jumps, including the fast sequences in Rounds 1 and 5.
At the same time, the next generation of French 8way competitors are trying to show their national coach Jeremie Rollett and 8way coach Erwan Pouliquen the best they have to offer in the other French team NPC Maubeuge Espoir, the 8way B-Team.
The new lineup will be a combination of probably three 8way veterans and five new members. Jeremie Rollett is competing with the team in Banja Luka and will discuss soon with Erwan Pouliquen who will be selected for the new 8way lineup. NPC Maubeuge Espoir is trying to keep up with Russia's 8way team Barkli.
