Around the turnpoint… on a better day (photo: Martin Scheel)

13th of July 2006 Under a not very optimistic grey sky the pilots launched at midday from Mont Chery for a 6th task of 5 turnpoints and goal in Morzine (43,9 km). About an hour after the start point opened it started to rain at some places and there were some big developments in certain points of the Morzine valley, with strong turbulences. The task was stopped before any pilot could complete it, so it scores no points. The Championship is now finished and yesterday overall results remain unchanged.

The podiums Luca Donini (Italy), Christian Maurer (Switzerland) and Thomas Brauner (Czech Republic) Women: Petra Krausova (Czech Republic), Ewa Wisnierska and Caroline Brille (France) Nations: Switzerland, Italy and Czech Republic
