Launching from Gulmen

Maurer (SUI) has hiked up a small hill, Gulmen (1789m), and has re-launched. Conditions where he is now show NE winds and low cloud. It's soarable to about 2000m – about 500m above the ground. Remember, flying is nearly eight-times faster than hiking, and a lot less tiring. Maurer's average hiking speed this race is 4.76km/h, his flying speed is 37.62km/h.
