Did you know that Hyrrokkin has a reunion in two opposing teams at the UK Nationals 2017?
posted: Jul 26th, 2017 The Sun Path Products NSL News brought the situation of British Team 4mula to the attention of the audience on 27 June 2017. Several updates from the United Kingdom followed, even though the 4mula story was not complete at that time. The UK silver medalist of 2016 has a new team member, and the story of 4mula tail Will Cooke connects with the updates that followed the first news story. In fact, new 4mula member Will Cooke does not only connect with some of the teams that were a part of the recent updates. He also has a reunion in his own new team with one of his earlier team mates, 4mula's... (more)
Did you know that the July 15 weekend featured three combined leaderboards for two rounds?
posted: Jul 25th, 2017 Last weekend did not bring any new scores to the leaderboards, and the scores of the July 15 weekend are still the latest ones. It was a special leaderboard though, as it happens to turn out once in a while. The NSL competition draw for the AAA Class is always randomly created and then trickles down into the other three outdoor categories. This procedure creates an interesting situation whenever a sequence is identical for two different categories. In such a case, teams have the opportunity to compare their scores directly with others in a higher or lower category. A 5-point AAA Class sequence... (more)
Did you know that Yannick Bisson attended his first outdoor competition with 16 years of age?
posted: Jul 24th, 2017 The story of Yannick Bisson began for the Sun Path Products NSL News on 17 April 2013. The Canadian 4-way junior was 11 years of age when he competed in 4-way for the first time at the Canadian Indoor Championship the same year. The first story in April 2013 explained how his father Richard Bisson trained his two kids, Valerie and Yannick, in the SkyVenture Montreal wind tunnel to get them ready for their first 4-way team, 4'Astrophe. The Sun Path Products NSL News has followed the progression of the Bisson siblings ever since on a regular basis. Four years later, 16-year old Yannick Bisson... (more)
Did you know that the French B-team lineups have average ages of 28 and 23?
posted: Jul 23rd, 2017 The AAA Class leaderboard on the July 1 weekend included several French 4-way teams, as the Sun Path Products NSL News reported on 8 July 2017. They competed in Bouloc at the second event of the Coupe de France 2017. Both national B-teams attended the event and completed four and five rounds, as the weather in the southern part of France near the Spanish border did not allow more. The short event was still enough for the two B-teams to show their outdoor potential compared to the previous indoor results of the 2017 season. Espoir Saumur Weembi claimed or tied the highest scores in each of... (more)
Did you know that NMP PCH HayaBusa lifted the indoor benchmark to 28+ rounds?
posted: Jul 22nd, 2017 The recent induction of SDC Rhythm XP into the 20+ outdoor elite club of 4-way teams who have completed 10-round meets with only 20-pointers or higher brought back the same topic for indoor competition. The Sun Path Products NSL News has not given attention yet to the fact that the indoor benchmark was once again lifted earlier this year. The last new benchmark with only 27-pointers and higher was set in 2012 when the French national team finished with a 32.8 average at the Aerokart Indoor Championship, and NMP PCH HayaBusa missed it with a 26-pointer in the last round. The reigning Belgian... (more)
Did you know that Hal Spence will be dearly missed?
posted: Jul 21st, 2017 You may have noticed over the months and years that I usually stay away from the bad stuff in Turning Points. I don't like to cover the dark events of the sport that happen once in a while, the BSBD stuff. I don't mind a good, hard and controversial discussion at all, however, there is more than enough BD stuff in the media and there is no need to add to the daily overflow of bad news. This time, I cannot manage to stay away from bad news, and I convinced myself that it even makes sense to pick up the BSBD story for a very simple reason. Hal Spence was such a positive participant in the sport... (more)
