The second day of competition started with bright sunshine and lignt north winds. The thermal was slow building but by 2:30 the head judge decided that the wind was suitable to start the main event. Madson was the most progressive rider in the light winds landing a KGB 5. Schitzhofer was also kiting extremely well on his 15 meter. After delaying the competition multiple times the race director decided to wait for more wind forecasted over the weekend and called it for the day.

The First heat of the day was between Jaspan and Garachenko. Jaspan was able to execute his tricks a little cleaner and advanced to the next heat. Schitzhofer was on fire in heat 2 landing a grabbed S—Mobe and many nice technical moves to easily advance. Rondina the local favorite had a close heat with Hutter, however Hutter’s grabs and power was too much for Rondina. Blanc and Madson had a great battle but Madson’s KGB 5 put him well in the lead with an 8 point score out of ten for that trick.

Borisov and Bakker had a close heat; Bakker won his 3rd consecutive heat to move into the next round against Tack. Garat and Neto had a good battle, however Garat seem unable to generate enough power, while Neto was charging hard. The last heat of the day DaSilva won his heat with his final trick against the Italian wildcard Garofalo who put up a great fight. The final heat of the day between Guias and Spiessberger was cancelled due to lack of wind.

The 2nd day of competition had mixed conditions and the riders that compete well in light wind advanced. The forecast is looking good for the next few days and we should see some epic action over the weekend. Make sure you check out the live, if you missed it today you can see all the recorded action
