I see even Vijay Soni ranked 43rd overall in this event.

First it was Dilip, then Gurpreet and Vijay ... this definitely gives us a very good feeling. Kudos to you guys!
Hearty congratulations.

Just hope that sometime in the near future, we all work together hard and try and make a lot more prominent mark on the World Paragliding Atlas!

thanks guys...

ummmm abt sharing the experience... well it wasnt just one event..it was a journey and small things picked up at each step.

i started feeling competetive last year as in most comps i was able to fly in lead gaggles and even occasionally be leading. But i didnt finish very well..several reason.. one of them that i felt very out of place when in lead. Also i was really bad with weak and windy conditions..particularly in flat land.

this year..i did korea world cup with same wing as last year.. flew in lead gaggle a lot but finished just in mid. one thing was apparent..i had killed my old wing.. a 2005 mercury baught second hand. In croatia world cup i changed to new Axis para mercury and down sized to M size . I still ended in mid ranks , in first few task i felt my wing doesnt climb so easy.. but later i learned i just have to handle it right.
after croatia was bulgaria.. the russian open and polish open.. flew quite competetive, though result dont show but made small mistakes particularly when in lead. Had a nice conversation with orlin about it. next task i made a mistake again..this time over confidence :D..after that rest of polish open was abt finiding the balance in confidence level and cautiousness..also improving my flat land flying.
turkey i hit the balance... instead of my position i am more proud of fact that i flew consistently well after that.. in turkey and in kazakhstan.
By time CIS open was ending.. i was very very tired.. flew 6 comps in row and 7 in this year. But happy :)

i am on skype by my full name..anyone want to discuss more is welcome
