Getting near the end of the waiting period now with only a few days left to run and forecasts not amazing, chance are they'll run round 3 tomorrow (thursday) at Bakio. The Euro wildcards have got some tough heats, but who knows what can happen, especially after what we saw at the Quik Pro France (as in Michel beating Andy and Kelly).

Hodei, who knocked out AI in round 2 has got world no.1 Fanning, Tiago's got Kelly in the next heat then Aritz has Taj later on. Meanwhile Jeremy is up against Shaun Cansdell in Heat 11.

And don't forget if u wanna hear a German talking surf in French, click on the french flag on the billabongpro.com website and checck out SE German Ed's Quirin Rohleder's dolcet tones via the live webcast!

Me and the posh man of Genevan free sport enthusiasts are up early doors to burn down to Vizcaia in the Corsa coz the Punto's mullered.

Ciao!
