Wing issues

Benoît Outters (FRA2) has just reached Turnpoint 5 Lermoos-Tiroler Zugspitz Arena. He is third in the race but he just said that he had snagged his wing on a tree this morning while launching. It had a tear that needed to be fixed. He used some sponsor tape and the wing is now fine again. He is just a short way behind race leaders Chrigel Maurer (SUI1) and Patrick von Känel (SUI2) who are racing up for the next flight.
