Pushing the limits

50knots+ winds hit the beach of “Le Jai” in Marignane located in the south of France, just in time for the second stop of the French racing tour. Severne rider Benjamin “babou” Augé took third place and now leads the French tour.

To finish it off in style, a jump contest was thrown into the mix.

Local boy and Severne rider Benjamin Augé had this to say about the event;
The second stop of the French championship (AFF tour) took place in Marignane (my home spot) in the slalom discipline. We have been lucky with a good forecast and we got some crazy conditions!
In the end, we managed to do only 2 slalom eliminations because of the stormy winds making things too dangerous.
I scored two fourth places which allowed me to finish in 3rd place. This also means that I’m leading the French tour at the moment. The next AFF stop will be the final and will take place in Leucate in two weeks.
