There's very little flying going on among the top ten at the moment. Tom De Dorlodot (BEL), in fifth near Turnpoint 10 St Hilaire, says: 'Conditions are super stable and that means no thermals. I'm now going to make the 30km, five-hour walk to St Hilaire. I was really looking forward to getting to Monaco, but we need to be faster and that means better conditions.' Christian Maurer (SUI1) is facing the same problem. When asked if conditions around him were stable, his team said: 'Yessss! We are slower than expected/hoped for.' Nevertheless, he has just launched once again.
