18.10.10  PWC Competition
PWC Competition PWC Competition PWC Competition PWC Competition PWC Competition

With the Super final in Turkey concluding the official PWC 2010 season has now ended. It has been a spectacular year in terms of design and technology applied to the new competition wings. As you might well know Niviuk developed the Icepeak 4 NS in a record time. In five months we were able to offer a very competitive wing to our competition team that participated at the Europeans in Abtenau last May. For this season we only produced 8 wings and the results we obtained have been spectacular. At the Europeans, in the women’s category we took first and second place. At the PWC tour, from 8 contested events, Niviuk had 27% of the podiums. We started in Brazil with Urban Valic´s victory and third place by his brother Aljaz. Italian Biaggio Vitale finished sixth and French Maxime Bellemin tenth. In women, the current world champion Elisa Houdry took also victory. ABAC/Niviuk team was also on the podium with its third place. The Asian round saw a significant reduction in the participation of our European pilots. Even then, Swiss pilot based in China, Alex Hofer took an excellent second position with his Icepeak 3, while local pilot Xianping Hou was third in the womens category. Back in Europe and after the Greek round, the PWC went to Italy and with Aljaz Valic and Urban finishing the competition second and ninth respectively they are both continuing to work hard to perfect the wing which we will offer to the pilots for the 2011 season. At the American round in Chelan we saw another Niviuk victory in front of a very large number of wings of other brands. Josh Cohn and his Icepeak 4 NS took control of the event and finished first after six tasks. Good result also for American Brad Gunnuscio in eleventh position. For the women, Venezuelan pilot Joanna di Grigoli also finished first. Team Niviuk USA were also present on the winners podium, taking third place overall. Just before the Super final, the PWC held its seventh event in Portugal. Local pilot Claudio Virgilio under the Icepeak 4 NS secured second place. And in the final round, in Turkey, Niviuk continued to show a presence on the winners podium with French pilot Jean Marc Caron taking third position. Aljaz Valic who was at the top of the provisional ladder during various days, finished the competition in fourth position. In the women category, gold for the newly crowned European Champion went to Petra Slivova and bronze to Elisa Houdry. To complete the trio of medals, ABAC/Niviuk took silver in the teams. A very successful season if we consider the number of NIVIUK wings that have competed. But perhaps the most important thing for us is what we have achieved in the evolution of competition gliders. After intensive testing and several different designs and proto types, we will have ready for the 2011 season the ICEPEAK 5.
We wish to congratulate all our pilots for such excellent results and we thank those of you who have competed with NIVIUK wings in 2010. We can say that we are ready and prepared for another exciting year of competition in 2011 and look forward to taking you the pilots to a higher level of success.

The Niviuk Team.
