Good luck to EVERYONE competing at EYYC this coming weekend…can’t wait to see you all on stage!

What can we even say about János? He took top honors last year at EYYC and the World YoYo Contest, and looks to be unstoppable. There’s going to be a lot of talent in the 1A division, but for everyone who gets on that stage….János is the man to beat.

Plamek took 2nd Place at both EYYC and the Open Division at Czech Nationals last year, and he’s definitely got his eye on the prize, and the skill to back it up. But can he beat János?

Czech National Champion Petr Kavka has greatly improved his 1A game since his 10th Place finish at EYYC last year…his winning Czech Nationals routine was the best we’ve seen from him yet!

Coming off a stellar 1st Place finish at the BRNO YoYo Contest last month, Ján Hlinka is definitely Top Three material. He took the 5A division last year, so he’s no stranger to keeping up with the talent at EYYC…maybe this is his year!

Carlos took 1st Place last year at both the German Masters competition and the Open Division at Czech Nationals, and could definitely take a spot in the Top Five at EYYC.

We all know and love Palli for his style and originality, but he’s that rare combination of player who can create mind-blowing tricks AND deliver them on-stage. He took 4th Place at EYYC last year…will he stay in the Top Five or will be move up to the Top Three?

2013 Bulgarian National Champion Konstantin Tudjarov is a relatively fresh face in the top ranks of competition, but if his winning Nationals freestyle is any indication, he’s coming up quick and could possibly snag a spot in the Top Three.

Petr just took First Place at the YYF Cup in Moscow this past weekend, and looking at that routine he seems like a safe bet for Top Five in the 1A division if he goes clean.

A permanent fixture in the Top Five at pretty much every European contest he attends, Vashek Kroutil is definitely a favorite to come up with a spot in the Top Three…and always a treat to watch!
