While the World Title is not on the line until the the third event of the Triple Crown, the Billabong Pipe Masters, ratings leader Mick Fanning is still competing in all three Triple Crown events. It’s fairly clear that Mick uses the first two ASP PRIME contests as building blocks going into Pipe. In fact, most of the ASP Top 34 have entered all three Triple Crown contests. However, 2nd place Kelly Slater is not on the Heat Draw for either of the first two Triple Crown events. Hmmm, maybe he’s saving his energy for Pipe writes the sundancebeach.com.
