Antoine Albeau has shown again that he is the man to watch out for this year. Taking the top spot at this event after dominating on the World Tour last year, he really is showing his form and experience. However, there is certainly a shuffle in the ranks taking place and some fresh blood is starting to appear, perhaps this is a sign of things to come. With a taste of the podium the likes of Julien Quentel and Matteo Iachino, who came second and third respectively, will now be filled with the confidence the needed to continue making damage to the top 3 positions. One person not to forget is Alberto Menegatti, struck down with a couple of spates of bad luck and perhaps not the best decision making, he found himself still winning many heats and even one round but it wasn't enough as only four rounds were complete and thus not enough discards were available.
