AGAINST ALL ODDS
Despite the good weather conditions and the force of the wind in the first two days, the weather changed, subsequently causing a continuous fight with the participants. On the third and final day, the wind was present, causing a two-hour wait to continue with the test. Finally, Pablo Santurde took first place on the seventh and last day.
