Joey Jones with Atmosfera G4
The Sun Path Products NSL News reported on 23 February 2014
that Joey Jones and Paul Mayer are back at the World Challenge 2014
with Bodyflight Black Majick and the same lineup as last year. Black Majick has signed up for the A Class competition.
It is not the only team for Joey Jones. The field of 4way teams also includes AAA Class team "Cats in a Bath", and the Sun Path Products NSL News found all four team members at least in the same room at the same time. Joey Jones was working with Portugal's national team Atmosfera G4, while Luc Verstrepen, Marco Arrigo and Martial Ferre were watching a video of an earlier flying session.
The international pickup team of world class 4way competitors and coaches has four different nationalities, with Luc Verstrepen from Belgium, Marco Arrigo from Italy, Martial Ferre from France and Joey Jones from the USA, currently living in Bedford.
Luc Verstrepen - Marco Arrigo - Martial Ferre
Luc Verstrepen was the Center Inside for NMP-PCH Hayabusa in the first years after Roy Janssen, David and Andy Grauwels joined the Belgian military forces to become full time competitors. He is now coaching the Qatar Tigers. Marco Arrigo was a member of the Italian world class team Sinapsi and is also a full time coach. Joey Jones won gold medals with DeLand Majik at the World Meet 2004. Martial Ferre replaced his brother Marin Ferre who was originally registered for Cats in a Bath. He won 4way gold medals for France in 1999 and 8way gold medals in 2010.
The team language was easy to find for the Cats in a Bath members. Assigning slots and determining an engineering plan were more challenging. Original front piece competitor Joey Jones ended up in the Tail slot with a right-hand pattern. Only Luc Verstrepen is in his familiar Center Inside slot with the usual French continuity.
The NSL-TV camera was also in the flying chamber when the French national team Volt'R was warming up for the competition.
