|An elated Nick! - screen grab from video|
As at the end of Monday is now in ninth position, just behind Ferdy van Schelven from the Netherlands (who competed here in NZ several years ago).
Saturday: 203km of flying - greatest distance covered by any of the pilots that day!
Sunday: 366km of flying - four flights, again greatest distance covered!
Monday: 315km of flying - third greatest distance

Redbull article on Nick's "Great Day" - they talk about "understated Kiwis" - however, this video of Nick, shortly after he'd gone over a 3600m pass with ten metres to spare suggests otherwise!
|Camping location on Monday night.|
Ferdy is 21km ahead, and he is camped 650m lower down. How much advantage will this give Nick as he attempts to catch up to Ferdy?
It will be exciting to watch events unfold from about 4pm (NZ time) on Tuesday!
