PWC SuperFinal

Paraglidıng World Cup 2009

 
1st Task ( 2nd  September 2009)
 
The first day they set 79km long task cik-cak on the ridge and at the end across walleye and back into final glide. I was on big pressure because last week my younger brother Tilen won Polish championship so also I had to show some performance J During 2/3 of race I tried to get out of crowd, finally I decided for a god line and joined Aljaž who was controlling the race. But I saw that I made one big mistake because I didn’t put last turn point into GPS so I had to find some victim which I followed thru that turn point. Than we had to fly just across walleye and back, where MacPOWER proved his reputation of God speed J so I came in goal 6^th , one minute after me was Gašper 10^th and Primož 13^th . 
We were really sorry for Yassen he found great connection to the first group at the end of the race 50m above ground 6m/s but at the end he was 300m too short to the goal line and he would be half a minute in front of me.

Superfinals has just begun and there are many more days to fly, also discard is a looooot in the game (happy Yassen) for now Gin and Ozone team are rely strong but so are we!!! Cross your fingers

3rd Task ( 7th  September 2009)
 
We had 75 km long task across the Rieti valley. I made some mistakes before starting cylinder and I start this race behind the others and quite low. Also Yaseen and Matej were not so much above me... I tried hard to catch the main gaggle, but everyting which i did today, it was completely wrong. So i flew way behind the main gaggle, with the girls... Only Yassen was even behind me, also trying with the other lines to catch the first ones and to win the task. After half of the race there was some shadow due to the thunderstorm clouds in the southern valley, so the race become interesting... First group stucked on some ridge, including Matej. I finally got the rythm, use amazing climbs of MACPARA wings and within next 10 km I was again in the game.
After this comeback I was really motivated and with this rythm I know it will be difficult for the other to beat me today :) - but the thuderstorm developed too much and the organizer decided to stop the race.The best MACPARA pilot today was Macedonian VLADIMIR NEDELKOVSKI (19th place) in front of STEFAN DRUIN (22th), ME (40th) and PETRA SLIVOVA (49TH), all in few kms...

GASPER PREVC

Yesterday we had very strong north wind so the task was canceled.
Forecast is very bad for the next few days and organiser is looking for alternative solution...
In the morning about eight o clock we travel south of Rome to the town of Norma. The town is know by the old Roman town. In the distance we can see the sea it's funny to figure it out that the sea level used to be till th height of the takeoff. And the mountain in the distance was an island.
In the lake under the takeoff is living cocodrile (crocodile).
When we arrive we go directly to the cliff, task comity sets the task and we jump in the air. The task is 75km long and pretty not interesting cik cak race. There is not much we can do, we cant fly the flats, because of the army airport and to the back over the mountains could be too difficult to return because of the strong wind.
Until the air start we have good flying conditions and we are flying over 2500m above sea level.
When the race starts I was in good position and I stayed there until the end. I was flying practically all the time 90% accelerated. There were practically no decisions so it became also a little bit boring. The most interesting was the end when we were gliding low to the last turn point and into the cliff. We picked up from 20 - 50m of the ground. Close call right before the goal.
In the end I finished 7. Gasper was 15, Jassen had broken speed...

4th Task ( 9th  September 2009)
 
Včerejší task Race to goal 75km. Na startovní hodiny se rozdělujeme na dvě části, jedna skupina vyčkává na úpatí kopců, druha, větší, část je v horách. Zde jsou základny o trochu výše a směrem k prvnímu OB vede rada. Jediné co hrozí, že se mraky zavřou a budeme muset vše oblétávat. To se naštěstí neděje, takže let z hor je výrazně výhodnější. Poté po hraně údolí a malých kopečků směřujeme na 2.ob. Poté měl následovat let po návětrné straně vyšších kopců, ale severní proudění tak výrazně ve výšce v nižších vrstvách není, ba dokonce se začíná projevovat místní briza - tedy převážně západní prouděni. Cele startovní pole se tedy ocitlo v placatém údolí, kde bojuje každý jak umí. Velká skupina dojela na to, že se nechala zafouknout blízko k letišti což byl zakázány prostor a tedy zářez - nula v kole (bohužel taky Matěj, který doletěl i do pasky). Vyzvedat se ze země se nakonec podařilo jen 23 pilotům. V druhé polovině trati se dala výrazně využít konvergence v blízkosti startu. Což let značně zrychlilo, ale dalo se také přistát těsně před cílem. To mně naštěstí nepotkalo, ale jen za cenu velkého zdržení a opětovného zvedání se úplně ze země. Takže 16 z 17 lidi v pasce.
