Pressemeddelelse fra RRD

Rrd is proud to announce that the Rrd International Windsurfing Team keep growing with the signing of former World Speed Record holder Finian Maynard. Finian is no doubt one of the fastest riders of the world and a slalom and speed addicted. His season goals are to stay on the top of PWA Slalom Ranking and to score the new speed world record.Definitely another hot RRD rider to watch right on this 2008 season!

New Rrd Team Rider Finian Maynard:
“I have know Roberto for many years. I was sponsored by RRD in 1996 on my second full year on the PWA tour and I had some very good results on his boards like my first podium finish of 3rd in the World Cup of Paros, Greece. The time seemed right to join the RRD team again as they were looking for a top slalom rider.
The RRD boards fit my style. I have been rigourously testing them in Gran Canaria in different wind strengths before I made my decision to join and I am confident that they can help me to my goals this year once I learn them a little more and get comfortable. I also want to work closely again with Roberto and his team as they are based in Tuscany and I spend a lot of time these days in Europe so logistically it made sense for testing and developing for the future.
Of course my season objective is to win.”

Rrd Brand manager Roberto Ricci:
“I’m very happy to welcome again Finian in the Rrd family.
He is the fastest windsurfer I have ever met and I am sure that he will find the right support he need with us. I have raced for many years with Finian in the tour and know very well what he needs to win .!”
