It is impossible for France to keep up with two world class teams from Belgium and Russia who have been together for years. New members Pierre Emmanuel Balages and Damien Gouriou said before the meeet that they would be happy to get to the 21+ average. It's 23.3 after three rounds.
NSL-TV also features Round 1 of the French 8way national team, Aerodyne Maubeuge. The second French team, NPC Espoirs Maubeuge, will become the national lineup after the World Cup 2013 and with a few experienced 8way competitors of the past years.
|World Cup 2013||Rd. 1||Rd. 2||Rd. 3||Rd. 4||Rd. 5||Rd. 6||Rd. 7||Rd. 8||Rd. 9||Rd. 10||Total||Avg|

|3||Maubeuge Aerodyne (FR)||22||28||20||-||-||-||-||-||-||-||70||23.3|
4way Open: Barkli
8way: Aerodyne Maubeuge
In fact, the new 22.9 record average of the Golden Knights, posted by Brian "BK" Krause's 2012 linep at the Mondial Dubai 2012, might be in jeopardy if Aerodyne Maubeuge continues the same way.
It is the last competition for this lineup, and it would be a very nice farewell gift and a great memory for the team members. They posted the second highest 8way average in history with 22.5 in Dubai, which did not even register when the Golden Knights finished with a 22.9 average. The World Cup continues with 8way tomorrow morning.
