Small mistake, big consequences

Maxime Pinot (FRA2) has landed on the slopes just above Kitzbühel, really low down. This puts him in 12th position for now. Going down so low is a real mistake, it is usually a wiser decision to land higher up on the slopes when you can't find a good thermal. While hiking back up, Maxime said: "Yes it was a mistake. I just thought the thermals would be better out front, but I couldn't find anything." He's still in a good mood though, saying that he feels strong. "In about 45 minutes I will be up again and hopefully fly. It is looking really good."
