First Norwegian Cup F3J 23/4-17
of the year and kind of bingo conditions in some of the prelim rounds (5rounds).
4-8m/s and even some small snow but sunny and nice day. In the finals it calmed
down a bit to 2-4m/s and i got away with medium launches. 1st me (Pike Dynamic
all flights empty except 2 rounds prelim with 1/4 and 1/2 ballast). In finals i
had 14:56 (me and Aril had full time) and 14:57,9 in second. 2nd Aril RÝsvik
(Pike Perfection), 3rd Kenneth Thommesen (Pike Perfection) and 4th Stig Magne
Olsen (Pike Perfection). Very happy so far with my Pike Dynamic. A bit more on
finding correct settings for ballast. But in most conditions i dont need it i
think (1930g st55). Exactly the model i hoped for. Fast and agile yet slows down
with camber and stays up in light conditions.
Again with the Pike Dynamic and
my second win. And that in very difficult conditions with 90 degree sidewind and
the need for some ballast but not too much because the comp was in a valley
creating turbulence and sink.
So the results:
