COMPETITION QUOTES

Trevor Wagner – Technical Head Coach
“There was no chance this thing was going to happen today. The panels were laying flat on the ground, the gondola was running at slow speed and there was a ton of fog.”
 
“It’s going to be an early morning tomorrow for all of us, but our plan will stay the same.”
