Did You Know...

... that the HayaBusa/FireFlash wake creates new AAA Class teams in Belgium?

Ayro at the ESL Championship 2018
posted Jan 9th, 2019 - The 2019 season is bringing the exciting last step into the AAA Class world to the recently crowned Belgian AA Class indoor champions of Ayro.

The original and unchanged lineup started in the A Class of 2017 and moved up into the AA Class at the World Challenge 2018. Ayro has the same plan in 2019 and will attend the first AAA Class competition in Bedford at the end of April.

Ayro has maintained a very special meet record throughout their first two years. The Belgian team has improved the previous team record averages at every single meet they have attended. This could be easy with a low number of attended meets. However, Ayro has competed at ten events in the first two team years.

The outdoor record in the A Class of 2017 (11.6 - 12.1) is just as clean as in the AA Class (11.6 - 12.1 - 14.9) of 2018, and it is not any different for the team's indoor performance, after two A Class meets (21.1 - 21.7) in 2017 and two (18.6 - 20.0) last year. The 20.0 at the Belgian Indoor Nationals 2018 was the last and encouraging result in the AA Class, which was rewarded with the Belgian indoor championship title.

Ayro - Synergy - Stardust at the Belgian Indoor Nationals 2018

Stardust at the ESL Championship 2018
Belgium has two different national champions in the AA Class. Stardust won the Belgian Outdoor Nationals 2018 in September over Ayro, before both teams traveled to Saarlouis for the ESL Championship 2018 right after their national outdoor championships.

It was a successful trip for both teams, as the Belgian delegation in Saarlouis won the ESL Spirit 2018. Ayro finished ahead of Stardust a week after the Belgian Nationals, and both teams contributed to the winning total of 31 ESL points, together with Jetmax in the AAA Class and Aeropotams in the A Class.

Ayro and Stardust know each other very well, as they started their team careers at the same event and on the same A Class leaderboard in August 2017.

Stardust won the first Belgian duel at the national championships of 2017 and has maintained the same clean progression as Ayro after the team's seven meets in the same time period.

AA Class awards at the Belgian Indoor Nationals 2018
Ayro and Stardust are two of the Belgian 4-way teams that have probably been coming in the wake of the HayaBusa and FireFlash momentum in the small country. Both teams will now make the next step together, compete in the AAA Class this year and leave the new Belgian AA indoor and outdoor titles open for other teams.

Their last AA Class competition at the Belgian Indoor Nationals brought them back together on the same leaderboard with Synergy from Italy who had won the AA bronze medals at the ISR Grand Prix 2018. Ayro and Stardust went neck to neck (149 - 147) once again in Roosendaal and still ended up behind the Italian team.

The Synergy visit in Belgium not too much later was a perfect re-match opportunity for the two home teams, and it became a lively and exciting competition for the three AA Class top positions.

Ayro needed the 20.0 average to win by three points, while Stardust could not catch the Italian guests. Next time, the two Belgian teams will have a AAA Class duel at the World Challenge in Bedford...
