The second competition of the 2010 Paragliding World Cup tour finished today in Japan, with only two tasks flown. France’s Lucas Bernardin (Ozone) was the first-placed Open pilot, and Tomomi Masuko (JP, flying Gin) top female.
France was also the first-placed nation, despite several of the country’s top pilots, such as Luc Armant and Charles Cazaux, competing in the Europeans instead which are still going on in Abtenau, Austria at the moment (25 May – 5 June). Japan and Korea were 2nd and 3rd nations.
The two tasks of 64 and 49 km were held yesterday and today (28 and 29 May), following an early start this morning for everyone to move to Mount Fuji.
