24th of March 2010, Argentina, FW World Championships

Huge crowds of spectators turned up at the lake to watch day 3 action.....

The governor of mendoza must have declared a national holiday judging by the number of spectators that arrived at the event site to watch the days action ! Cars lined the roads surrounding the lake, and every vantage point attracted a group of spectators. There was a festival atmosphere around the event site - and to round off the days festivities a Miss Bikini contest .
Todays "star" rider was Casper Bouman (NED52) with a 4th in race seven and 2 bullets in races eight & nine. Championship leader Antoine Albeau (FRA192) still holds an impressive lead after another consistant days racing, but Paulo Dos Reis (BRA3333) will be regretting his OCS in race 8, slipping down the overall ranking by one place and making way for Casper to move into 3rd.
You get the feeling the podium places are all still in the balance.
In the womens fleet Marta Hlavaty (POL111) did not have it all her own way, in the lighter winds Morane Demont (FRA59) is a more than her equal, and surely is a star of the future.
