09 Palma: Day 5 - Dorian is 'on fire'
Last Updated ( Friday, 10 April 2009 10:53 )
Dorian van Rijsselberge (NED) is having a real 'break-out' start to his season. Having had a blast in Miami, he is now taking the bull by the horns in Palma to lead the RS:X Class men's Fleet by 9 points. A 4th and a bullet were enough today to make things difficult for the others in the medal race.
The next three look set for a battle royal however. 4 points separate Fabian Heidegger (ITA) from Shahar Zubari (ISR) back in 4th with Ricardo Santos (BRA) in between. It's going to be a three way fight for the minor places on the podium. No doubt Joao Rodrigues (POR) 5 points back and Nick Dempsey (GBR) a further 5 points away will want to get into the mix as well.
Nothing is therefore set in concrete yet. It's going to be exciting to watch the tactics tomorrow
