The Top 3 positions were taken by teams from three different countries (Netherlands - Great Britain - Belgium), and the 3rd place was strongly contested. Two more Dutch teams placed behind High Voltage from Belgium in 3rd place and ahead of the only Czech A Class team, High Five. The rankings of the adjusted leaderboard are according to the total after Round 6, which was completed at all meet locations.
It was the first outdoor competition in the A Class for the Czech team that the NSL News had introduced during the ESL Championship 2018 with a live interview in Saarlouis. High Five had won the Rookie Class gold medals and announced plans with a different lineup in the A Class this year.
High Five started in the A Class at the monthly meets of the Czech Tunnel League and attended four indoor meets between November and February. Then it was time for the first outdoor competition last weekend.

The British Volt4ge outscored the Belgian High Voltage for the 2nd place. It's the second year for Volt4ge in the A Class, and it was the team's 3rd time at the 2019 meets of the UK Skydiving League. Volt4ge have attended each UKSL meet since the team was founded at the beginning of the 2018 outdoor season.
The UK Nationals 2019 are next at the end of August, and Volt4ge could be in contention for A Class medals. The scores of last year's national championships are showing that Volt4ge is currently above the bronze medal level, and the silver medals are in reach, as well.
There is a new mix of British A Class teams this year. Only Volt4ge and Area 51 have been back in the same category. The RAFSPA Tornado lineup attended both earlier meets this year, as well, and Volt4ge has the upper hand so far.
UK Nationals 2018
The A Class was the most competitive category at last year's national championships in the Netherlands, and it could be the same this year.
The Funneling Four won with a 9.0 average in 2018, and no other Dutch team was close to Encore Une Fois's 10.2 average last weekend.
Everything seems to be wide open in the Netherlands though. Last year's A Class winner at the Tomscat Trophy, Free Format, did not compete at the national championships. Vice versa, the A Class winner, The Funneling Four, had not attended the Tomscat Trophy before winning the national gold medals later...
