The wind ruins everything

The expected strong westerly winds have arrived in Switzerland, where the race leaders are. All athletes in the top ten are on foot, hiking along valleys. Paul Guschlbauer has just landed along the side of the Disentis valley. He said: "I had to land before I went down into the valley, where there is airspace. The wind is very strong and from the wrong direction now, from the west. That wasn't the plan yet. I don't have a good plan, I will just hike."
