Simon Oberrauner (AUT2) has had a wonderful day at the front of the pack, currently in shared second place with Maxime Pinot (FRA1) Simon said: "Today was unexpectedly good. We started with 30km running, and then it was clear that the day was very good. It was important to get into the air as soon as possible. We had very special conditions today at Ortler. The cloudbase was at 4200m, that is very rare and we could fly over the peak of Ortler. The south wind pushed us perfectly towards Kronplatz. I'm very happy to be here in Antholz now and I hope tomorrow will be not too windy and the thermals will be good and I hope to see you all in Zell am See."
