Dunkerbeck secures the slalom world title 2011

by Maarten on August 14, 2011

Bjorn Dunkerbeck managed to secure the PWA slalom world title with still one event to go. Congratulations to Bjorn! Good to see someone else winning again. Not that I have anything against Antoine Albeau but after winning several world titles in a row it is good to see somebody else win again. The same happened a while back in the Formula 1 where Michael Schumacher was taking all the wins successively. That became a bit boring after a while.

In my opinion it would even be better to see someone win who has never won before instead of Bjorn, Ben van der Steen for example. That will shows to the other windsurfers that it’s still possible to win a world title between all the “old” guys. On the other hand Bjorn Dunkerbeck and Antoine Albeau show how incredible talented they are because they are so consistent in their performances over the years.

Let’s see what will happen in Sylt, Germany. That will be the last race/slalom stop of the PWA Tour 2011.

Ah thanks, made a subtle change to the article. Good effort from Ben!

Nice article BTW!

For the rest of the top 10 the Sylt event will be exciting for the yearranking:
– Finian Maynard and Cyril Moussilmani could both make 4th
– Peter Volwater, Micah Buzianis, Julien Quentel, Josh Angulo én Jimmy Diaz could all make 6th
– Pieter Bijl could make 15th
