XEVI WINS THE IBERIAN OPEN

July 6, 2016

The Iberian Open, and second event of the Spanish nationals, has come to a close in Piedrahita Spain. Ozone team pilot and overall winner, Xevi Bonet reports:

“Piedrahita delivered consistent conditions every single day of competition with 7 valid tasks and more than 800 km flown.

We started on Day 1 with an ambitious task of 169 Km around La Sierra de Gredos. After 7 hours of flying the strong head wind and light thermic conditions forced us to land a few meters from goal.
On day 2 a nice 102km triangle with a difficult waypoint at El Parador Nacional de Gredos. 9 pilots in goal.
On day 3 with stormy conditions in the forecast we ran a short and fast task of 87 km with many pilots in goal.
The fourth task a 160 km route that started with windy conditions but from Avila things improved with 9 lucky pilots again in goal.
On day 5 an easy route of 115 km with big part of the gaggle in goal.
On day 6 a roundtrip of 118 km to Avila, due to strong wind in El Collado de Villatoro just 6 pilots made goal.
The last day a short task of 84 km along Piedrahita Valley, the flatlands flight wasn’t easy, 16 pilots in goal.

After 7 days of competition I ended up in the first place, followed by the young french pilot Teo Bouvard and Francis Reina. All flying Enzo 2s”
