Tactical decisions

Gavin McClurg’s tactic to avoid the forecast Foehn wind has meant he has done quite a dog-leg today. He has already hiked 39km, and has flown 78. He is moving fast, about to arrive in the village of Handegg in Switzerland. He is currently just 3km ahead of Laurie Genovese (FRA4) in the rankings, in 21st and 22nd positions separated only by three kilometers. They have eached hiked a marathon distance already today.
