Did You Know...

... that HF Flying Circus outscored the Bad Boys for the first time in a 10-round meet?

HF Chicks with 4-way junior Karolina Henkova in December
posted Jan 14th, 2018 - The first scores of the new year came from the Czech Republic where 13 teams applied the January draw of the World Tunnel League.

It was the third meet of the Czech indoor winter season, and it featured a great start for HF Flying Circus. In fact, the January 2018 meet eventually turned out to become the first time that Flying Circus, with son Jakub Klapka in the lineup, finished ahead of the HF Bad Boys, with father Jan Klapka in the tail slot.

The Bad Boys, still the Czech 4-way indoor and outdoor champions, actually finished in 3rd place. However, it was not the first time that the HF Chicks, bronze medal winner in 4-way Women at the FAI Indoor World Meet 2017, outscored the Bad Boys.

The HF Chicks were back with their top lineup last week, after 4-way junior and HF Cubs member Karolina Henkova had filled an open slot in December. The team's 22.4 average missed the highest team average (22.5) only by one single point.

19.9 average at the World Challenge 2017: HF Flying Circus
The HF Chicks had posted their 22.5 record average in Montreal last year, which was already too much for the Bad Boys by then. They had finished with 21.9 at the same event.

The Bad Boys are still missing inside center Vaclav Prokes, and HF Flying Circus member Martina Vavackova was once again helping out, this time at the 10-round meet. She had substituted for Vaclav Prokes at the December competition of the Indoor Cloud League, where her own team outscored the same Bad Boys lineup with the AAA/AA sequences.

The Bad Boys have a 23.3 average in the books after the last meet with Vaclav Prokes in November last year. They will still face ever toughening opposition with their own regular lineup, now that HF Flying Circus becomes comfortable at the 21+ average level.

Flying Circus had missed the 20-average benchmark with a 19.9 at the World Challenge 2017 and jumped up to 21.1 at the ISR Grand Prix 2017. Scoring higher is easier in Roosendaal though with a limited dive pool and only eight rounds.

The team's 21.2 average last week is a much stronger statement. The ten rounds included all six slot-switching AAA Class blocks, even though two of them (Block 12 – Block 10) neutralized each other in Round 10.

New Czech Rookie Class team: High Five
It is probably not only Jan Klapka with his Bad Boys who has to watch out for the new-generation team and his son's 4-way challenge. HF Flying Circus seem to be ready to reach out for the AAA indoor and outdoor top spot in the Czech Republic.

Martina Vavackova was not the only Flying Circus member with double duties at the Hurricane Factory. Her team mate Jakub Klapka was substituting for the Skydive University team from Slovakia, while she competed together with his father in the rear piece for the Bad Boys.

Jan Klapka also happily announced a new Rookie Class team, which does not consist of 4-way juniors this time. High Five had posted two of the Rookie Class scores (RRR - RR) for the Hurricane Factory on the Indoor Cloud League December leaderboard and now followed up with the first 10-round competition. The Czech 4-way Junior teams are still the main opponents for the Rookie Class seniors.

Jan Klapka is coaching the 4-way juniors every Wednesday at the Hurricane Factory and works with senior teams (Accord, Flying Circus, Mimozemky, M team) on Thursdays. High Five will probably have to join the Thursday group...
