Yassen Savov (Bulgaria) and Austria kings of the Paragliding Euro!

Euro2012-podium1

The twelfth European Paragliding Championship is over. The last task day was a 74 km tour of the high ridges and valleys to the west of the takeoff overlooking St. Andre les Alpes. The top five places were tight—a false step by any pilot would knock them out of the running. Yassen Savov was in first place, having taken second the day before. It was amazing to see the lead gaggle come in fairly tightly strung out after more than two hours bouncing around in the windy conditions. In the end, Yassen finished fourth, only 17 points behind the day’s winner, Marc Wensauer. It was enough to keep him in first place, so we have a new champion form Bulgaria. Cheers to Yassen and all the competitors who shared the blue skies above St. Andre in Les Alpes de Haut-Provence. 

On the Individual podiums... Overall: Yassen Saov (Bulgaria), Xevi Bonet Dalmau (Spain) and Russell Ogden (Great Britain). Women: Nicole Fedele (Italia), Kirsty Cameron (Great Britain) and Regula Starsser (Switzerland). On the Team podium: Austria, Spain and Switzerland. Complete results are on the organiser's website.
