The last test for the national 4-way teams before the FAI World Championship of Formation Skydiving 2014 was only a 2-round meet, while Venturi Maubeuge was the only 8-way team with five completed rounds on Monday.
All French AA Class teams completed five rounds, as well, while the other 8-way teams were done after Round 3. The French national championships are scheduled for the beginning of August and could be another opportunity for the national teams to attend a competition. However, the timing may not fit to the French countdown plans for the world meet, and national coach Jeremie Rollett will probably have the final word soon.

It was different last weekend, as national coach Jeremie Rollett sent all three national lineups in the traditional FS events to Maubeuge for the competition. Venturi Maubeuge managed to complete five rounds in a hurry on Monday, and the meet conditions were far from normal. The 14.8 average is almost identical with the scores at the Paraclete XP Outdoor Championship 2014 and is not threatening for the Golden Knights yet.
Former French 8-way world champions could be found as player coaches in the other 8-way lineups: Bruno Perin and Damien Sorlin (alternate) with Acceler8 Maubeuge in 2nd place, Erwan Pouliquen with Meetic Pamiers in 3rd place, Emmanuel "Manu" Sarrazin as the coach and alternate for Le 8 Cretin Horzone Clermont. Paul "Polo" Grisoni, French national 4-way and 8-way competitor of the late 90s until 2006, competed again for Monaco Vitalsea.
