Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series

Posted by fidest press agency su venerdì, 17 giugno 2011

La Rochelle on Saturday, June 18, ‘La Grande Nation’ will have its eyes on the ‘little cliff’; only between 7pm and 9pm is the tide in the cold, 16-degree-centigrade, water of the Bay of Biscay high enough to secure the required water depth of five metres. For all those who cannot be onsite for the world-class high diving competition, the midway stop will be screened live on ServusTV from 7.30pm (CEST) with a live webcast on
Three down, three to go after France – with seven competitions in the 2011 World Series calendar, La Rochelle represents a pivotal moment in the Series. Gary Hunt, reigning World Series champion, comes to France as the overall leader and, after a moderate start to the last competition, the Brit has been working on his diving programme: “I’ve learnt inward double half in training so I’ll try that as my first dive in this event. The massive crowd here in La Rochelle always motivates me to perform really well.”
Since 2009, the catacombs of the Saint Nicolas Tower have come alive each year when the world’s best high divers come to town. 120 steps to the highest platform in the entire competition, the 27.5m structure will be the focus of attention for up to 70,000 spectators, the biggest crowd ever for a World Series event. Why? This breathtaking action is only to be seen once a year and never before has a French diver had a better opportunity to step up onto the podium. Cyrille Oumedjkane can be sure of his compatriots’ support!

I am delighted,  the goal is to improve the overall classification of the last two rallies, maybe with a podium, I will  surely commit to the utmost professionalism. After a short interval of time, I return to race with a  Peugeot by Balbosca, of which I can say with absolute certainty, having used both, that it has  nothing to envy, to the very performing one made available by Kronos in Sanremo ” The objective of the crew is to have a positive end to the yaer to plan at best the 2010 season.
