Disentis Task 1 Summary

Back to "World Cup Switzerland 2020 ::: Disentis"
Better late than not at all, the World Cup season took off today from Disentis in Switzerland, for the first task of 2020. With a backdrop of stunning alpine scenery, a 77 km task with two turn points, going east to Schiers was set. 

Everyone got off to a great start, high above the take off ridge. It was a day of having to adapt to the changing, and often, unexpected conditions. A difficult first turn point out in the main valley meant that pilots got low, combined with a lot of cloud cover, made it impossible for all but one sky god to get to goal, Stephan MORGENTHALER. 

A task deadline of 15h sadly meant that none of the five pilots still in the air with a chance of getting to goal, were able to get there in time to claim time points, further increasing Stephan’s lead. 

However, at the end of the day, there were a lot of happy pilots, just happy to be in the air flying with friends once again. 
The average speed of the fastest pilot round the course was 27 km/h.
Only the single pilot who made goal today, Stephan MORGENTHALER, got time points - 45 points in total.  
All the other pilot’s scores were made up of leadout points and distance points
