Antoine Albeau crowned 2013 PWA Slalom World Champion in Sylt

After 7 days of tough competition and 5 breathtaking slalom eliminations, Antoine Albeau produced another fantastic display to not only claim the event victory, but also the 2013 PWA Slalom World Championship – back-to-back world titles for the RRD Frenchman.

To be highlighted also the great performance of Julien Quentel, who leaded the event until the last Slalom elimintion, securing a great 2nd place overall in the event and a fantastic 3rd place in the PWA Slalom yearly Overall ranking!

Antoine Albeau speaks after defending his PWA Slalom World title:

“I’m super happy to have won again here in Sylt and of course to claim the world title. I had a big battle with Julien [Quentel] (RRD / NeilPryde) and Alberto [Menegatti]. I had a lot of opportunities to win the world title this year, but it is always stressful. I’d also like to take the chance to thank my sponsors and the organizer of this fantastic event, so thank you Matthias. I’ll look forward to returning next year, just have my bottle of champagne waiting for me.”
