Alciston, East Sussex, England -Sebastian Hertler from Germany triumphed at the recent IGSA Euro Series round at Alciston England. Ranked 48th in the World, the Lush Longboards sponsored rider had a fairly easy run through the early rounds of the final day’s 64 man bracket. He ran up against Torbjorn Sunde in the semi final and it was here that the close racing was expected. Bo Peep takes no prisoners and favours the lighter riders, at over 100kg Sunde would have to ride an impeccable race to challenge Hetler who is much lighter that the Norwegian currently ranked number 8 in the world and the highest ranked rider present, Hertler took the semi with ease.
