The event is usually a 10-round competition. Teams and meet management were struggling this year to complete six rounds in the AAA Class and five rounds in the A Class.
The challenging weather did not keep two teams in the AAA Class from continuing a battle for Denmark's top position in this category. VAF Warriors and Airplay used each of the six rounds trying to outscore each other after the first internal Danish battle at the World Challenge 2013.

The same story was also a preview of the World Challenge 2013 from the Danish perspective. However, VAF Warriors had a trip to Florida on the agenda before the first showdown with Airplay would take place at Bodyflight Bedford.

The DFU Cup was the third meet this year for VAF Warriors, and the team turned the table at this weekend's outdoor showdown with Airplay.
It was a very close call though, and VAF Warriors got some serious help from Airplay. Only the devastating 6-point deduction in Round 3 put Airplay too far behind. Both teams actually completed the same number of points in working time over the whole meet. However, the judges have the final word, and VAF Warriors had the advantage at the first meet in Denmark this year.
