 Antibes International slalom 2006
Posted: Mon Nov 14, 2005 11:49 pm
Here are some news from south of France.
Antibes International Slalom will take place during the last week of September. (or first week of October not to clash with Gruningen) Ed note Nov 30, 2005. /Jani
We'll try to make it during 3 days. (One flat part and one on the Garoupe hill)
RACES : Tight, special, giant and of course our traditional "nations slalom".
PLACE : Salice and Garoupe but we're studying the possibility to eventually move the race.
ANIMATION : 2 big parties and bbq (one with live music). freestyle demo, child slalom...
MEDIA : a big work on the promotion with local and national media to bring crowd in La Garoupe.
ACCOMODATION : We try to lodge all the racers at the same place near the race and at low cost.
INFORMATION : Internet site will be ready before the end of the year. Any question here before it ready.
SPONSORING AND PRIZES : We begin now to pick up sponsors for our event.
I want to thank all the racers present on the precedent editions 2001, 2003, 2004, 2005 and especially all those who came this year even if we haven't really promoted the event.
It was fun! And give us the willingness to continue..

get up stand up, don´t give up the fight.
Posted: Tue Nov 15, 2005 1:36 pm
Do not give up!
Next year I will be there!
With or without any media coverage or prize.
Try to train and give my best regards to the whole family!
PS: What about organizing a winter training session together at La Garoupe?

please notice that we have the Zurich competition at the same time as your world cup.
We can't move the race, because there is the carfree day in the city of Zurich. There are 100'000 people in Zurich on this day and perhaps we will be the Highlight of the whole event, what means a big media coverige.
It will be Sunday the 24. September 2006.
Is it possible for you to have the race one week before or after the competition in Zurich ?
It will be bad to have two competitions on the same date.
Posted: Wed Nov 16, 2005 12:49 pm
No prob Jadranko.
I respect your work and never put a date at the same moment as your event.
Certainly one week after. I'm waiting to see the city before deciding, but some people from the beach have complain about the disturbation, that why we move a little bit later in the season.
Posted: Wed Nov 16, 2005 12:57 pm
Peter and Anders and all the swedish scene : thanks for your support. I apreciate a lot.
It will be great as never in Antibes next year!
Stefano : We had a giant the 4 of december in La Garoupe during the telethon.
you're welcome as everybody. Just a small race for animation.
Posted: Wed Nov 16, 2005 1:34 pm
If it's a week before or after, some us skaters can attend both races !
We will be there as every year !
Antibes is a kind of extra summer time for us !!
See you at the next race....

Popaul: We need your 2 legs to race with the French team next year.
And I need you...to translate the rules in a true english on the internet site of the race. I'll let you know. See you and be strong.
J-Rad : Let's try to work together to have some US racers in our races.

What is the update on this event? Has the date been finalized yet? Might be planning a trip there if we can work it out . . .
Posted: Tue May 02, 2006 8:29 am
Pierre plans his Event one weekend before or after the Over80Cones race in Zurich (24. September).
I will ask him if he has detailed information and keep you informing here.
Posted: Tue May 02, 2006 10:19 am
It should happen on September 30 - October 1.
I think that is a pretty safe bet. We discussed it a couple of weeks ago and it is still announced as that on Riderz.net.
At that time Janis Kuzmins needed to know and by now I think that he has already booked his ticket, so I hope it won't change now.
Posted: Tue May 02, 2006 3:37 pm
I booked ticket for 30.sep./1.okt.
Posted: Wed May 03, 2006 10:44 am
I just spoke to Pierre and he confirmed that Antibes will be held as announced on September 30 and October 1st.
Posted: Wed May 03, 2006 5:09 pm
Thank you all very much for the quick replies and update.
Posted: Wed May 31, 2006 6:21 pm

Posted: Wed May 31, 2006 6:42 pm
I like those news. They make me looking forward to your event which always was a real pleasure!
Posted: Tue Jun 06, 2006 9:43 pm
I know Antibes it's a very special place where racers seem to be more at holiday than at race. ( shouting with the micro to get the racer out of the sea to go to the start! it's really typical in Antibes!)
We are working hard to put the registration certainly next week on the net with the official internet site.
Posted: Wed Jul 12, 2006 6:15 pm
here is the official site
We are working to have soon the english version but you already can register no use to speak french.
We certainly propose an easy accomodation in front the sea near the Garoupe. We have reserved about 40 beds. We give you complete information very soon.

We add soon all the informations about accomodations.
We are just waiting for the answer of "RELAI INTERNATIONALE DE LA JEUNESSE" which will be only open for us. It's 300 hundreds meters from the giant track front the sea.

Don't forget to add your name on the registration list
See you in Antibes
Posted: Wed Aug 16, 2006 6:05 pm
hm....isn´t it possible to move the Special Slalom to La Garoupe Hill? :|
Posted: Fri Aug 18, 2006 12:33 am
Unfortunatly not. It was what I had previous first.
But there is a big pedestrian race on the same day.
The city let me 2 solutions : Cancel or move to the parking. I have chosen the second solution! But remember the very hot public we have at night on this place Ramon!! All these (practicly ) nudes girls shouting....Ra...mon! Ra..mon!
You know for sure it will be more difficult to beat Luca on this type of track...I'm sure you'll enjoy the challenge.
Posted: Fri Aug 18, 2006 1:11 am
Ok, ok, ok - I see. 1:0 for you Pierre. See you there, I'm so much looking forward.
Posted: Fri Sep 08, 2006 10:44 pm
You can reserv the accomodtions in sending a mail to our president
Tell if you want to stay friday, sathurday or sunday.
Remember the lodge is only open for us. So for thise who want to arrive early you have to find another solution.
Claude Reynier I know you arrive before so let me know I have certainly a solution for you.
Posted: Fri Sep 08, 2006 10:48 pm
The t-shirt of the event is realy nice...but we have only 60...We keep for the 60 first register.
But anyway we never be more in Antibes....Only the pure are coming
Posted: Mon Sep 11, 2006 2:14 am
Hi Pierre, we expect about 8 British to come to Antibes - should be good!
Posted: Mon Sep 11, 2006 12:29 pm
wow! I tell to the bar to order much more beer!
lot of swedish too!
And I usual the incredible swiss teams, Janis from letvia and Claude from Canada, the russians girls. The Italians with their Capo : Luca. lot of french, but for time no americans and more strange no germans?
Let see later. The internet list is never the same as the race list.
Anyway we try to prepare something great for this (last) edition. We wan't you to have a lot of fun in coming here. I know some of the racers are more in vaccation that at race. And it give a good spirit to the race.
See you soon on the french riviera
Don't cpunt 'em out yet, EH!
Posted: Mon Sep 11, 2006 4:24 pm
Pierre, Maria & Richy & Jason mentioned they we're interested in going and I am sure that after ASR this weekend Maria will be able to find a cheap flight if they can make it.
They'll all be at La Costa and I'll see if they are still attempting the trek. We talked about having a North American Team in the Nations Cup this year neither of us would have 3 of our own.
Thanks for the e-mail we write you in a bit.
Ramon tell Chris to check his e-mail again. What days are you practicing before Zurich so we know when to plan our travel days, EH!
C & MB

Claude, we normally practice on Tuesday evenings but actually we are quite flexible so we could easily have another training session on Thursday or so.
