Almost unnoticed: NMP-PCH Hayabusa after landing from a jump in Banja Luka
It's the Day After at the World Cup 2013
. The Sun Path Products NSL News will follow up with several stories and videos, as this year's World Cup generated great participation, footage and content.
The aftermath begins with NMP-PCH Hayabusa, the winner in the 4way Open Class competition. Round 10 almost went by without any attention for the 26.7 finish of the top contender for any 1st place at any 4way competition at this point in time.
The battle between USA and France in the female 4way category was the competitive highlight of the whole event and was in the final stages when the 4way Open Class teams also completed their meet. However, there was no serious competition for Hayabusa on the top of the leaderboard, while it was an incredibly exciting finish in 4way Women. It was no big surprise that Hayabusa's newest victory went by almost unnoticed in Banja Luka.

Cleaner than ever_ NMP-PCH Hayabusa
The Sun Path Products NSL News had the opportunity for an interview with the team yesterday afternoon and was interested how the Belgian team was dealing with the situation of competing mostly with themselves and the numbers on the scoreboard.
The Hayabusa members were prepared for the situation and still tried their best to perform on their own top level. They also had a special goal, which was well accomplished. Andy Grauwels explained that Hayabusa has been on a cleanup mission after the Mondial Dubai 2012.
Dennis Praet still has a flashback of his Block 2 debacle in Round 10 in Dubai once in a while, and he does not like the block very much. He said that the total damage in Dubai was the main reason why his team lost the meet. It is not supposed to happen again.
NSL Talk with NMP-PCH Hayabusa after Round 10
Hayabusa seems to be on the right track with this mission. The team tries to maintain the same level of energy and speed and maintain more control over the perfomance at the same time. Result in Banja Luka was a total damage of three points, and videographer Danny Jacobs had to take responsibility for two of those three points.
It is a completely new picture compared to the past. NMP-PCH Hayabusa was one of the cleanest teams in the whole World Cup competition, if not the cleanest one at all. The first infringement was called in Round 9, and it was the only one caused by the active lineup.
The Sun Path Products NSL News audience has the opportunity to find the infringement, as the competition video of Round 9 is available, together with all other Hayabusa jumps. Dennis Praet provided a hint during the NSL Talk where to look for it...
