Men’s Eliminations 1 and 2
Following a protest that took place yesterday, the race committee decided to re-run the men’s elimination 1 final. The decision was made after carefully considering the circumstances that led to the protest and ensuring fairness for all competitors.
The re-run of the men’s elimination 1 final was first in sequence today. By 15.30, the wind filled in and the FreeFly-Slalom action could commence. The competition was fierce, with Mathis Ghio taking an early lead as they approached the first mark. Francesco Cappuzzo and Bastien Escofet were close behind him, but Ghio managed to increase his lead substantially as they approached the FreeFly section.
Titouan Galea made a strong comeback and managed to creep up in second position, with Cappuzzo and Escofet falling slightly behind. In the end, Ghio was first across the mark, with Galea in second, Escofet in third, and Cappuzzo settling for fourth.
The committee commends all the competitors for their sportsmanship and determination, and congratulates Mathis Ghio for his outstanding performance in the men’s elimination 1 final.
The excitement was high during the men’s second elimination final, as Mathis Ghio and Bastien Escofet battled it out for the top spot. However, as they approached the third mark, unfavorable wind conditions caused the AP flag to go up, and the elimination 2 final was postponed until tomorrow.
