Nick Neynens (NZL), in 18th, is flying. He said earlier: 'Hiking Niesen, no clouds, paragliders, or puffs of wind so far (9am).' He spent last night sleeping in a haybarn. He adds: 'I just had my race gear on so shorts and warm clothes on top. I just chucked some hay on top of my legs and they were fine. I have a couple of blisters, one on each foot, but they're better than they were on day two. The legs keep working but I don't understand why with the amount of vertical I've been doing.'
