How does Marco Begalli prepare for the IFCA Slalom Worlds?
Posted On:  19/04/2011 12:09:37

So Marco, the Worlds is coming up. How do you prepare?

Marco Begalli: First of all I try the course a couple of times. then I try starts, finding the right angle with the corner and only after that I'll decide if I will start closer or not to the boat.

What will be your strategy immediately after the start?

If I'm in the first position and I have clean wind, usually my speed will let me win. But of course I always have to watch what is happening on my shoulders. If I'm not the first one to enter the jibe, who knows. I have to find a space between the other competitors that will let me take the lead. In any case, if you are in first or second position after a jibe, you're going to want to pump to get back planing as quick as possible.

Being the first at the mark is important

Give us one reason why you should the Champion Title again

In every regatta I do my best. Even if I'm 45 I will hunt down as many trophies as possible in 2011, especially the ones I won last year. Thanks to my training, I feel better every year. I happen to have many secret weapons, but first of all is my personal perfect trim and the right feeling with the rig and board.


The right feeling

Any other riders you are afraid of ?

In Curacao I will be the man to beat!

Thanks for the interview Marco...
