9am start

It's 9am and the lead athlete Chrigel Maurer (SUI1) is in a perfect position to start to fly as soon as the first thermals start. He is preparing his flying equipment and relaxed. Behind him SUI2, AUT1 and ITA1 are hiking to get into position to also launch. All the way through the field athletes are getting ready to fly – either hiking to a launch or already in position.
