After an exciting 289km race from Borås Hermann Leucker crossed the finish line in top position. Klaus Kalmbach and Clemens Berger finished close behind in second and third places.
The contest got off to a good start with strong conditions to 5,000ft in good thermals. Herman completed the task at 119kph in his JS3 which is a respectable speed with the potential for faster racing to come over the next six raging days.
