A 93 km race to goal zig zagging north and south was set. It was a day of marking and flying conservatively until everyone went down at the last turn point – except for 7 pilots.
What a nail biting finish as Michael Sigel, lying in first place overall, raced across the flats, and Nicola Donini in 2nd place, with 3 other top pilots, raced in from the east, each knowing that first across ESS would be crowned winner. After 4 hours and 16 minutes of racing, Michael scraped in first on his Gin Boomerang 11 and Nicola came in second on his Ozone Enzo 3.
This was the best ever finish to a Super Final. What a race to celebrate twenty-five years of the Paragliding World Cup.
