The new Block 5 (Crank - Crank) was drawn in Round 2, together with the new Random Formation K (Crossbow). Block 7 (Nacho - Nacho) followed in Round 7. The new Block 21 (Stereopod - Stereopod) did not make into the 10-round competition draw, which is an unfortunate coincidence.
The NSL News discussed the changes of the dive pool briefly with Paraclete XP8 members at the end of the day. The other video features the Top 4 teams with the execution of the two blocks. XP8 Tail Tim D'Annunzio had to admit that the Crossbow (K) is too long for his flying chamber. The video of Round 2 shows why.

The young national B-Team had a 4-point lead after Round 6. Then 8way veterans Martial Ferre and Damien Sorlin got serious, together with Thunder's Paul Hofstee, and turned the table in the last two rounds of the day. Bonjour Blue Sky is now up by one point, and the battle will continue tomorrow.
Paraclete XP8 allowed the French teams to get too close in the earlier rounds and has picked up the pace in the last three rounds, as the leaderboard shows. The 4way teams will be first in the chamber tomorrow morning.
