Brung tops shortened Task 4, but Spaniand Xevi stays overall leader

In three out of four tasks at the ongoing AAI Paragliding World Cup, a Frenchman dominated the day’s proceedings, as Julien Brung topped the fourth task, which was curtailed from the original 93.8 km at Bir Billing. When the Task Committee declared the weather as dangerous for flying at 1.48 pm, Brung had covered the maximum distance of 34.87 km and points were awarded accordingly.

Despite Spaniard Xevi Bonet Dalmau finishing way down the order in 110th place, continues to lead the overall leaderboard with a total of 2499 points. Winner of Task 2, Xevi Bonet finished way down having flown only a little over 12 km before being forced to come down. Germany’s Michael Kuffer, who ended the day in 16th place remained in overall second place with a total of 2464 points, while French legend Julian Wirtz, winner of Task 3, continues to hold his overall third place with 2448 points.

As expected, the curtailed race shuffled the day’s AAI Paragliding World Cup’s leaderborad. Brung topped the day’s points table with a haul of 205 points, but he is still way down in 42nd place.
