Opening ceremony was held in Kobarid after a successful training day and the first competition day  Monday the 17th provided beautiful conditions. The defending European champion, Slovenia’s Matjaž Sluga opened the competition as the first pilot and made a beautiful 0. Another Slovenian pilot - Matjaž Feraric - is though leading the competition after 2 full rounds with a total of just 1 cm.

The weather forecast looks promising the organisation lead by Jure Fratin and Igor Eržen are working smoothly so the atmosphere is at the top.
