David Cubel first to 100km goal near Fuentemilanos

A stronger (20km ) W wind today, so once again we had to go with it.  Some high cirrus early on, with the base climbing from around 2300 -2800 during the task, though rising to over 3000m at the end of the day.  Most of the leaders bombed to the north of Avila with only David escaping to make goal.   Another mix up in the ranking and still a lot could change during tomorrows final task.  The weather tomorrow is looking good so a championship with 6 valid tasks look on, and 7 flying days.  (See overall at  //www.parapenteweb.com/Archivos/Nacional/CLASIFICACION_CTO_2011_OPEN_MANGA_2+3+4+5.pdf .  Other days at www.parapenteweb.com.)

In fact, next week is looking pretty epic.  I am keen to get back in the haress after a weeks of following the route below in the car.
