Events for 2010

My focus will be on testing, development and completing my new goals for 2010 (will be published 01-01-2010).

But some events will be a good thing to see where you are at that moment:
  • Belgium Speedweek 2010, I want to compete on tight angles. Just a hard confrontation for myself, otherwise I will never be fast in these conditions.
  • USM 2010 series, try to compete all of them, hope to score even a higher position than 9th overall
  • Karphatos, maybe I am this year lucky enough to enter the event...
  • NK Speed 2010, I don't want to miss this one. Probaly another lightwind event ;)
I considered competing a lot of ISWC events like Jacques vd Hout, Hans Kreisel, Anders Bringdal and more. Only paying all entry money and being there would give me a good result, but somehow I don't want to pay a lot of money for a high ranking ;). I don't think in my case that I am able to cover all costs, the biggest problem would be breaking gear. My gear is quite expensive you know.

Risks is related to succes, also for speedsurfing this rule applies. However taking high risk both financial investment and on speedcourse doesn't always guaranty a good result. This is a lesson learned in 2009, I have to advance step by step.
