Thanks to all the people who made Forbes possible for us! Big thanks to Vicki, Steve and Bill for having put in the bid to bring the worlds to Australia again. Thanks to all the numerous assistants everywhere, in the hot paddock and in the hot bowling club.
Thanks to the DHV for all their trust and support in our team and us individual pilots! We worked hard and tried our best - and my work has only just begun ;)
Thanks to Moyes for the RX 3, a glider I could fly 2000km and 60 hours in 14 days with and still happily jump into Bruce´s Malibu at Cronulla Beach the day after the awards, I didnt need to take Voltaren during the comp ;)
Thanks to Red Bull and adidas for their sponsorship, not just in Europe, but also in Australia - you guys make me feel home everywhere in the world! The Red Bull music truck and the sampling girls even came out to the hot paddock in Forbes with cool drinks and cool music! The adidas outdoor clothes made my flying much more comfortable and safe!
