In the meantime, ISR FireFlash was hit by a very unfortunate accident at the end of the team's second year together. Glenn Straeluyc was injured severely in a work accident shortly after the national championships. His L1 vertebra broke when he fell through a roof, and he had to undergo surgery twice. However, FireFlash were confident that Glenn Straeluyc would recover quickly and be back in training and competition action soon.
Sven Ibens' former Thunder ISR team mate Jacco van Eerden was helping out at a few indoor meets at the end of 2018 until Glenn Straeluyc was ready for indoor action. It was a strong and promising comeback for him at the World Challenge 2019, where FireFlash finished with a 27.0 average in 8th place.
ISR FireFlash were still approaching the outdoor part of 4-way training and competition very cautiously and scheduled even their indoor schedule always considering the physical situation of their team mate. FireFlash attended only two more meets since the World Challenge in 2019, the ISR Grand Prix in November 2019 and the Wind Games in January 2020.
Belgian Nationals 2018
ISR FireFlash's comeback efforts were even rewarded with the national 4-way title. NMP PCH HayaBusa took a break from the national championships this year, after winning their 4th set of FAI world meet gold medals at the FAI Tanay Mondial 2020, and there was no serious domestic opposition for the second Belgian world-class team.
Ayro and Falco both finished with new team record averages after a 10-round battle that Ayro eventually won by five points. Phoenix started into the AAA Class competition with a 10.0 average, after competing in the A Class of 2018 and in the AA Class of 2019. None of the three Belgian AAA Class teams behind ISR FireFlash attended a live competition in the pandemic season of 2020. Only Ayro participated in the NSL Cloud Mondial 2020, together with NMP PCH HayaBusa in the top spot, and with High Voltage on the AA Class leaderboard.

The NSL Cloud Mondial 2020 was the one and only AA Class experience for the current lineup, with new member Hanne Verbauwhede and Johannes Wirt on camera, before this year's national championships at the beginning of the month.
High Voltage won the Belgian AA Class title without any domestic competition. It was still only the 3rd place on the AA Class leaderboard, as Qatar coach Luc Verstrepen brought the two Qatar farm teams, Cheetahs and Lions, to his home country's national championship event for competition practice.
He continued traveling with the Cheetahs after the 18.8 average in Belgium. The German Outdoor Nationals 2021 began only a few days later and a driving distance away, and the Cheetahs now put all the German AA Class teams in place. Luc Verstrepen could not defend his German 4-way title though, as Oceanside AtomiX finished only 2nd. HayaBusa's David Grauwels was more successful in Germany. He was coaching Meltemi Illertissen to the 4-way Women title.
