Thomas Friedrich (AUT3) has had a hard day, making some unfortunate decisions in the air. He is showing to be a great sport though, saying: "I should have waited a bit more maybe, it was a small wrong decision. It happens, it's ok. It was quite difficult, there were shadows and high clouds." He is currently hiking together with his supporter Arno Flitsch. They expect to hike through the evening and be at Hochgründeck tomorrow to fly.
