17th FAI European Hang Gliding Championship 2010-08-20

The weather in Ager, Spain in July 2010 for the European HG Championship was hot and sunny: temperatures around 38C and sunshine every day, allowing 9 valid tasks (two days were cancelled due to strong winds). Tasks ranged from 67km to 193km (with more than half the field in goal! This task is won by Frans Hermann with Combat L 14 and third was Mario Alonzi with Combat 09 13.2). Gerolf Heinrichs from Austria is the new European HG Champion and his team mate Tom Weissenberger is awarded silver. Attila Bertok (Hungary) won the bronze medal overall. Italy took team gold, followed by Austria, with Switzerland in third place.

Our congratulations to Mario Alonzi for becoming 4th overall, Dan Vyhnalik for becoming 5th, Primoz Gricar for becoming 6th and Christian Voiblet for 7th place. All of them flying Aeros Combat gliders. And of course, our congratulations to unofficial women’s European Champion Julia Kucherenko! (With only seven women entered, the European Women’s title could not be awarded. Still this doesn’t devalue the brilliant result of Julia – 26 overall, beating many famous men and leaving other women far behind). Julia is flying Aeros Combat 12 09.
