World Cup Serbia 2021 Task 5

Summary written by Ruth Jessop
 
With blue skies and plentiful thermals an 83 km corridor task was set taking the pilots west across the hills and valleys in front of Kopaonik to goal in the middle of the meadows on the plateau.
 
The concentric circles which were the edges of the corridor gave plenty of choice of where to take the turn points. Pepe Malecki took the zig and the zag at the three o’clock position, the main gaggle at 4 o’clock, a few others at 5 o’clock and there were still pilots flying at 6 o’clock.
 
The second half of the race had more cloud cover, a higher base and strong climbs. On a day when the overall scores were thrown up in the air, the youngest pilot in the competition, Victor Boudet, won the task, a World Cup first.
 
A great day. More of the same again tomorrow please.
 
The first 51 pilots made goal, and thus all flew the same distance and gained the same distance points. Today’s winner is therefore the one with a combination of the best speed points and lead-out points. 
 
Top 3 speed point winners – the fastest round the speed section.
2:19:03  Victor BOUDET with an average speed of 36.4km/h
