The news from the summit at Turnpoint 1 is that the wind is too strong to allow safe competition flying. This means the race time will stop when the athletes get to Turnpoint 1. Athletes can then either hike back down, or choose to fly down if they want. This is a safety decision – it takes the pressure off the athletes when it comes to flying. To complete the course, athletes must still get to goal and pass through the race finish line at Wagrain-Kleinarl.
