One more score came with a video from SkyVenture Montreal where the Bisson family team 4Astrophe added a 23-pointer for the AA Class sequence. Father Richard Bisson said that his team will even follow up with another score for the AAA Class sequence of May.
4Astrophe did not compete with the original 2014 lineup. Center Inside Marie-Eve Dallaire, also a member of the Canadian national 4way team in 4way Women, Fuzion, was not available, and 4Astrophe had a famous alternate filling the slot for the AA and AAA Class sequences.

It was a new experience for Katie Woods, as she is usually flying in the front piece, together with Vincent Lemay. However, she is familiar with all slots of a 4way team, as she is also coaching other teams and needs to know the details of all positions.
The video shows Katie Woods in Tail action for the AA Class sequence. The AAA Class video will be added as soon as Canadian judge Pierre-Andre Gauthier has approved the video and the performance and put a number to the 35-second working time.
It is coincidence that 4Astrophe found an alternate who is a member of another family lineup. 4Astrophe's Richard, Valerie and Yannick Bisson surely have a lot in common with Evolution's Martin, Vincent and Benoit Lemay. The main difference between 4Astrophe and Evolution is the fact that father Richard Bisson is still a team member, while father Michel Lemay stepped back at the end of 2012 and made room for Katie Woods.
Katie Woods is now probably the only competitor in the history of the sport who has performed in two lineups with three family members. Insiders may know that she was also one of the candidates when NMP-PCH Hayabusa was looking for a new Point at the end of the 2010 season. Hayabusa is a family team with two brothers David and Andy Grauwels. By the way, her brother James is also a very talented 4way competitor...
