Red Bull X-Alps 2011, tough race for second place between Toma and Paul

Toma Coconea chooses to run the entire day the last 50 km to the end (that will prove to be actually 79 km) . Paul instead picks up the flying path.
facing a strong had wind, Paul was forced to land in the lee side of a mountain at 20 km behind the finish. Toma still has 10 km to go, this could be his opportunity to win the second place.

Paul takes off again but fights strong breeze, he manages to cover other 10 km but stops at only 9 km from the finish. Toma gets the second place, him and Christian Maurer are the only two pilots able to finish Red Bull X-Alps 2011 race in time.
