It's for 90% sure that I will film the event. As usual, the main organizer may receive a DVD from me, which contains footage of previous slalom events like Hannover and the PSWC.

Map of the location , which makes it easier to find locations of hotels.

So, then I can't try to take away from Fabian his master world record, nor Christopher take back from Olle Bauer his junior world record that he lost about a week ago? Even if only unofficial...

Please do!
Think we can do better, all of us!

That's right Michel.

We have to concentrate to those who can break the worldrecord arround 50 Cones. As you say right it isn't the official ISSA record. It is just the record as fastest human arround 50 Cones. If you feel you can break Gustavs record so we let you race, otherwise not.

We have to keep this part short so we can longer skate the Over80Cones.

Yeah - everybody must come to Zurich to have a great end of the season and of course beat my 50cone record !!!

I hope to see there our Usein Bolt in slalom - Marcus Seyffarth ;)

Thank you Gustavs, but I feel more like Usama then Usain (hiding in my cave in stockholm instead of running cones). Anyways, I'm in! I bought my ticket today. However I will miss practice since I don't land until 12.15. But I guess its the ususal left-right-left-right so it will be fine. I'm so looking forward to meet everybody!

We have 14 Juniors and 32 Open racers on the list.

All Racers have to come to the Speaker to confirm their Internetregistration, to pay the entryfee and to take their BIP Numbers.

From Arround 10:15 it should be possible for the Juniors to practice on the course.

The Juniors will start at 11:00 in the morning. The Juniors will race two different courses. Two runs for each Junior. The best time for each Round will count for the Roundresult. The additional of the best times from the two Rounds gives the Finalresult.

At 13:00 we start with the Open Group.

1. Round
All 32 registered Racers will Race the first Round. Two runs each, the best time of the two runs counts.

2. Round
26 Racers goes into the 2. Round. Two runs each, the best time of the two runs counts.

3. Round
20 Racers goes into the 3. Round. Two runs each, the best time of the two runs counts.

4. Round (Final Round)
10 Racers goes into the Final Round. Two runs each, the best time of the two runs counts.

The Final Round is the decision Round. Round 1,2 and 3 is to qualify for the Final Round and the Final Round only, decide who will be the Over80Cones Champion 2009.

After the Final Round we will have the World-Record Attempt, if we have enough time.

Thank you for a great time in Zürich! I really enjoyed my few hours in the town. Great fun meeting everybody, great fun racing some and... Well it was fun! I even enjoyed falling, haven't done that since trocadero 2004 I think. Hope too see all at a race soon!

Note to self: don't reach for finish line while looking at the timer display and riding on one foot through the last couple of cones at full speed.

Thanks! /Marcus

I gave it to Michael Brönimann and he sand it to the newspaper. I hope they had enough paper to print it. There were 260 runs and times, just for the statistic.

If Ramon isn't faster than i with publishing the times, than they will be online today 17:30 swiss time. My only problem is, that i haven't a server to publish them. I sold all my things (Server place, wheels, my old russian trucks, my both timingsystems), just not the 161 board.

If i get a possibility to publish it (hope Jani will give it) than i will publish, otherwise i send it to you and all who want it with e-mail.

If you send me the original excel files I will import them and show them online at

Same goes for all races and race organizers. No matter how small or big event it is, as long as you use the standard excel spread sheet and send it to me at I will upload the results so that they are available to everyone.

Doing this also helps keeping the ranking alive.

Congrats Marcus! I find it pretty amazing that you, after a year without to much (allmost none) training can do this.

Pretty tight times................after Ramon that is.
