Former world champion Pierre Mortefon joins FMX Racing for Slalom X

As one of only two riders to win an elimination on the fin in 2023, with the separation of fin and foil racing, Pierre Mortefon (FMX Racing / Phantom / Phantom Sails / Phantom Foils) will be one of the favourites in the newly formed Slalom X discipline with FMX boards under his feet. 

Pierre said: “I am happy to set this collaboration with Finian and FMX for the PWA Slalom X Tour. It’s exciting the separation of the 2 disciplines as I am still a Fin Lover! This is why I decided to search for the best boards as I also want to go for the title in Fin. I know Finian since the beginning of my career, he was always a big name, a super fast guy and has true passion for the sport. After some boards testing and exchanges, we decided to go for it together! I think I will have good tools under the feet with FMX RACING and on my hands with PHANTOM - Just can’t wait to be on the line!”

Finian said: “FMX Racing is excited to announce the arrival of Pierre Mortefon to the international team! Pierre is definitively one of the very best slalom sailors of the past 10 years, his pedigree speaks for itself. He is passionate about Fin Racing and has big goals for the upcoming season. FMX shares this drive and is stoked to welcome Pierre onboard and give him the elevated performance he needs to launch his attack on the inaugural Slalom X World Title. It’s going to be an exciting year!”
