Thomas told us "Ciao ragazzi, it was a challenging comp with Manfred in the task committee. I guess you know what this means! He really pushed it with not too many pilots in goal many days, just at the last one for a happy ending.
The Laminar is flying great, it brings me to the next level and to team up with MR is awesome. Such a great guy and pilot to learn from in many ways! "
"It was a real good last day, strong conditions in the mountains.
It was a very good way to celebrate my birthday with the last day and overall comp winning.
And that with very little hang-gliding training but with good motivation and a perfect glider"
