Hier noch ein Statement von Lex in der Kurzform auf Englisch:
“Oops, I did it again!” Britney Spears would have squealed in my place with a shrill voice. By today’s deadline it is official: I am the winner of the official FAI WXC, for the second time. With up to a year ago still absolutely unimaginable points peak of 2520 points. How incredible …

Looking at the more detailed XContest results list, it is noticeable that the remaining pilots among the TOP 5 submitted all of their routes on Brazilian soil, where one can really rack up the kilometers, if only you can only take a long enough vacation!

After my return from South America I shed a tear, as I had to come home after just 16 days in the flatlands there. I had just begun to warm up in the strong wind and flatland environment, and had two new Austrian records on my last two flight days there: 462km and 442km.

So I found myself at the end of the Brazil season, just 5th place in the World. There were still some good days in the Alps, and I knew with my new feel-good wing, the Ozone Zeno, I would have the potential at Hammertagen for a really nice FAI-Triangle around the Eastern Alps.

So, fortunately, with two large FAI triangles from the Stoderzinken, 295km and 284km, I was again at the top of the international standings”

Gratulation und ein dickes Cheers vom gesamten OZONE Team.
